This week has been a pretty busy, so I was not able to finish the article I was working on, so instead I thought I would give a quick update on this week.
Last night I went to a Producers Guild networking event in Hollywood that was hosted at the Den on Sunset. As always I met a lot of really great producers, but I also met a guy from the U. S. Coast Guard Motion Picture and Television Office. We were talking about the services the different military branches offer to production companies at no cost. Some of the stuff does have a cost but mostly if it is going to be additional expense to the military. If you want solders running around or doing military stuff it is free, and they calk it up to training. He said he can even get helicopters and tanks, and I would only have to pay for fuel… Who wants to get a helicopter with me? I’m sure the fuel is not cheap, but really awesome the military offers these things to production companies.
Tomorrow I’m attending another Producers Guild event that is an Associate Producer Council Master Class: “Comps: How Comparable Films’ Financial Info Can Make You a Better Producer”. It will go over how to get people to invest in your projects by making your numbers look good to potential investors by using comps. I will let you know if I learn anything interesting.
This week I also registered for the Creative Talent Network 3-day Animation Expo in November, so I’m looking forward to that. Has anyone gone to this expo before? What is it like, and any suggestions on what panels to see?
I wanted to give a big congratulations to my friend Hashi for his Streamy Award win for “Best Visual and Special Effects” for his YouTube channel Action Movie Kid. And a even bigger congratulations to him and his wife who are welcoming their daughter into the world today.
