Why are you interested in the Film & TV Industry. What are your future Film/TV goals? What do you want to do in the future in relation to Film and TV? Why do you want to join this group. What do you think this group can do for you?

I am interested in gaining knowledge from those associated with the group as well as offer assistance in any form or fashion. I am a writer and have several project ideas that I am currently developing but feel I need additional input from those that truly know how to move my projects forward.

What Film/TV Projects have you worked on in the past? What projects are you working on currently?

Most of my work has been in local, small projects though I worked many moons ago as an extra in Belizaire the Cajun. Wow how time flies! Currently I am spending most of my time writing various short stories, motivational pieces and 2 fictional pieces.

What city do you live in? Which city would be best for you to attend a Monthly Meeting? Shreveport, New Orleans, Baton Rouge or Lafayette? Is there another city that you think we should hold a Meeting (one that would benefit many people)?

I currently live in Mandeville, LA. I can attend meetings in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and even Lafayette where I still have a residence.

Are you an Actor, Extra, Crew (what is your specialty, i.e. grip, best boy etc), Producer, Director, Screenwriter, Film support (i.e. equipment rental, caterer, etc)? Basically please describe what it is you currently do in relation to films/TV.

I am currently trying to secure roles as a n extra so that I can get a "hands on" view of the workings of sets, filming etc so that it will assist me in both my writings as well as the potential of securing other roles. However, I will fill any role so that it will add to my base of knowledge of the industry. Yes, I will clean toilets or pick up trash!

Are you a member of a Union (Actors - SAG/AFTRA/AEA, etc), (Crew - IATSE/TEAMSTERS, etc), (Director - DGA, etc), (Writers - WGA, etc) or any other Union not listed here.

Not currently, but any advice would be appreciated.

Introduction

Chip Carriere, Mandeville, LA. Since my early childhood in Lafayette, I have had an interest in film work in Louisiana and have always felt that our state offers a marketable, diverse mixture of talent, beautiful locations and warm, giving people.
