Networking in L.A. Let's shoot something...

I'm new to the network and back in L.A. again. This is the second time I've made the move to L.A. and I have very high hopes for this time around. I've been back for two months now and I am getting ready to start production on some shorts. Looking to see if anyone else is interested in getting involved.

Like I said, this is the second time around for me, and if anyone else has done the same, you'll know what I'm talking about when I say, this time I am much wiser than the last. I have invested in an Avid Express Pro editing system, skateboard dolly and track, green screen gear, and my two favorite friends... the one with the Canon XL1s and the other friend with access to assorted lighting gear.

I currently work at a post production/Vfx facility and there's loads of free stuff to use there as well...

I have friends that want to do stuff and I have friends that just say they do stuff... I'm am looking for more friends that want to do stuff.

Contact me if you want to do stuff

Hey Rick,

I'm in a similar situation. I am working on two shorts at the moment and always looking to network with more people. Drop me a note and lets chat.

Hey Rick,

L.A. is a tough venue, as you know. Looking forward to you sharing information with all of us on this forum.

Sweet dreams,

Stephanie Wilsn

Charles,

Yes, I've seen some of the Instant Films. It is pretty incredible what a group of people can produce in only 48 hours. I'm guessing lots of coffee played a big role. :)

By the time of the screening, the directors are generally walking zombies, most of whom have been cooking for 36 hrs straight (I usually get in a couple of hours sleep). The actors and crew have a good long day on Saturday, but then they are done. I tell the crew when we are wrapping late Saturday night, "usually you work on a film, then 6 months to a year later you get to go to the cast and crew screening. Tonight, you'll go home, you'll sleep in, have a nice brunch, head over to the studio that night and watch the whole thing up on the big screen with 400 people in the audience".

It's a fun experience. I'll be posting more as the next one draws closer.

LA folks:

I will be shooting some tests with the JVC HD-100 and the Mini35 this week (probably Wednesday and Thursday). We will be setting up some feature-type shots for demo purposes. If anyone is interested in helping out on this (it's an opportunity to see the new camera in action) please let me know. I only have limited crew space so I can't necessarily take everyone who offers, however.

Strictly a test. This all came up rather quickly; it would have been nice to try to put a real project together but given the time frame and other factors, we'll be creating some beauty shots rather than a complete narrative. But we will be lighting, using models etc. There will also be a day at a rental house with different lens configurations, the Mini35 vs the stock lens resolution tests etc.

Sounds great !

I would love to be involved what house are you renting from ? IFP also has a mini 35 rental for $150 a day I believe, and slow motion inc. has a nice set of primes , I forget the brand, for about $250-$300 a day.
