Studios, Santa Monica
invited us into their great new facility for audio post production,
and we filled it with people and portfolios. Lively presentations
from Team One's Chris Graves, O&M's Karine Saadoun, and
Ground Zero's Kristina Slade led to much networking and looking
over of each other's work by everyone present. Are portfolio
reviews great? Yes. So great, in fact, that we decided to start
up a regular portfolio review course, which we'll be
beta-testing through the rest of 2004. Stay tuned for details.
Our deepest thanks to Bruce, Loren, Mark, Hélène,
Jessica, and Rohan of Lime Studios who were there at the conception.

Beyond the Workplace
(one of the country's leading music and sound design shops)
opened their doors to the Club and we stepped right in. An evening
of creative risk-taking, and learning some of the nuts &
bolts of independent filmmaking, book publishing, and home recording.
Stories were read. Songs were sung. Art was gazed upon. Films
were screened (see below).
Scenes from films by Armen
Ohannessian, Paul Elliston, Michael Stahlberg, and Gregory Lemkin.
Please check out Stimmüng's
work. Their web site is well worth a visit. Our deepest thanks
to Reinhard, Ceinwyn, Kelly, Morgan and Kathleen for making us
feel so welcome. They do know how
to take care of creatives.

Greenway Arts Alliance Theater
at Fairfax High School
It's amazing what people
are willing to do just to make a TV commercial. They'll even pay
for it. And that's what this night was all about. Some 75 very
entertaining spots were shown over the course of the evening,
to directors, editors, producers, and of course, to creatives.
It was a great success, and we'll definitely have another one
of these soon.
and Dina Mande from Group101,
the spec work dynamo that provided half of the program, discussed
their approach to making high-production commercials on a low
budget. Cards were traded. Scripts were passed around. All in
all, an evening that was clearly from the heart of the LACC's
mission: it's all about the work. (Photos by Roger Poirier.)

Dalesandro, John Shotwell, Nick Santana.
