Not quite Pittsburgh, or "Welcome to North Hollywood"

The transition to California is complete and residnece has been taken up in North Hollywood. Today marked the third day of "boot camp" for the MEIM program. The nice alums from CMU have been coming to speak with us.

Network. Get the ball down the field. Network.

Post producers, free lance stage managers, writers, agents, casting directors - all said the same thing. Not that they weren't helpful - no, it was nice to hear a unifying idea and method amongst different professionals.

And show up early, not late.

Before all of this school stuff started I had a little party at my house. Note the red back. No, that is not a tattoo - Mr. Grubbs actually received that horrendous burn at the hands of the sun whilst tanning in Malibu. In person it was nothing short of unreal - the most terrific sunburn I've ever seen.

And yes, this warrants another post, but in the interest of saving time, I'll write about it here. Utah. Sundance. Simply, if you get the chance, go. Everyone you need to talk to and meet is there, people you didn't know you needed to meet will be there, and poeple who you don't really need to meet but you're glad you did - they're all there. Filmmakers - go now.
