Coming to LA
Joshua Allen csc posted a topic in Los Angeles, CA (US)Hello fellow filmmakers, I'm a Toronto DP of 13 years experience, and I'm thinking about making the move to Hollywood. I'm trying to meet directors and producers in LA, but if anyone could point me in the direction of where to go to meet said people, I'd be much obliged. Are there any indie film meet ups? Particular opportunities for schmoozing? Also, looking for a place to live once I move there....I was thinking Silverlake or West Hollywood.....any strong opinions for/against? I'll most likely plan a 1-2 month reconnaissance trip in the near future, and I'd love to meet any of you fine folks in person. I'd be looking to pick up a US cell phone as well....any advice as to which are the best service providers would be appreciated....any Canadians make the move down there? I have an iPhone 5s (Rogers), and I'd love to just use it down there with a US sim card, so all my contacts are still in tact. Any suggestions what's the best way to go about this?

Hello everyone, As the title says, I'm a gaffer from Germany, 22 years old and currently train as an event technician at the WDR studios in Cologne, Germany. Event technician is the official term for the apprenticeship, which includes studio work as well as live situations such as concerts and parties. However, most of the time I work as a gaffer in a studio environment. As far as i know the dual education system in Germany is somewhat different to most other countries, so here you can get further information, in case its important. So my contract will end in about a year and i feel like I need a new challenge, see how other people work in order to advance my skills. Anyway, what I wanted to ask you is, whats the best way to get this going? I know that I need to find a job in advance to get a working visa. How do you see that chances of finding an employer who is willing to put himself in the struggle of bringing me to the country? Whats the best platform to look for jobs? I'm glad for every piece of information on this topic as I feel kinda lost in the jungle the breaks open when you google for media jobs. Thanks in advance! Johannes
