Hey everyone! I've been in LA two weeks now, and enjoying the lovely weather, great food, and beautiful landscapes (coming from Boston). I wasn't sure where I could connect with other filmmakers, then stumbled upon this forum. Any advice, thoughts, recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Love being here.

 

Here is a recent video I shot during a trip to Korea just before the cross country move:

Go out to CineGear in June (i think?) and any other networking events you can. Small film fests, screenings, ect. Keep looking for gigs and you'll slowly meet people. Also there are numerous FB groups for filmmakers, a lot of them indie ect, where you can talk to people, find some gigs on occasion, ect. Also Stage32 has people specifically in film in the area.

 

Also also, you'll start to miss the east coast beer pretty soon. That is a sad day.

Wait, you mean there's no Labatt's in Cali? My future has become bittersweet.

I haven't seen and Blue here yet, but personally I am pining for Yuengling and basically most Lagers. This seems to be IPA land.

 

Also quite looking forward to a coffee or a pint in April, Phil.

I do indeed owe Mr Irwin lunch and I'd be pleased to make good on that at some point when I'm there.

 

Adrian, I'm a coffee guy, but I'll buy any amount of beer if you'll let me put your B4 lens on your pocket cinema camera. Want to play with that combo.

Ha Ha! Phil, you owe me nothing. But it would be great to have lunch with you. Adrian can join us as well!

That sound's like a good plan. And of course the B4 and Pocket is welcome to be played with Phil. I can bring out some PL Optars as well though my PL adapter is currently wonky.

Not to tread on the original poster, but I'm in LA from the evening of Thursday, April 10 until the following Thursday, April 18. I have a few things booked, but I'm likely to have a day free over the weekend of 12-13, or later in the week.

No problem - I was crazily busy in any case. Going to try and get out again before the end of the year.

 

Adrian needs to update his headshot!

These meet ups never seem to work out. Everyone has the best intentions but life happens and it is kind of sad really.
