Filmmaking / Directing : NEW to LA by Troy Ruff

Troy Ruff


Hello all filmmakers, Im new to LA, well living in Santa Monica. Wondering where local filmmakers go to meet and hang. Connect with each others projects. Where I lived before we would have a once a month meetings in bars to collaborate. Im making a movie soon and needing some help. Anyone who would like to be apart I posted on the jobs page. Also check out my FB.

Here's one I've heard of, but haven't gone to... yet. "Deadline Junkies meets every Tuesday evening from 7:15 pm to 10 pm with a 15 minute break around 9:00. We currently meet at Open Stage West/Annex, 14336 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423. There's plenty of room, so if you're shy, bring a friend. Just make sure you both sign in at the front counter so we have a record of your attendance." For just a plain old wonderful place to sit and write, and see lots of filmmakers hanging out, there is THE JUMPCUT CAFE in Studio City, owned by my friend Elric Kane. He holds lots of free screenings in the evenings there, and it's a great way to casually meet like-minded folks. Staci
