Introduce Yourself : Hello, everybody by Al Garcia

Al Garcia

Hello, everybody

I live in Havana, Cuba, and I have to say I still consider myself a newby in the business. Passionate about storytelling and filmmaking since I was a little kid. I’ve worked on low to no budget shorts and documentaries, and now I’m planning to use my iPhone to make my dreams come true. My expectations on Stage 32? To make a lot of connections and learn from you, amazing people in the film industry!

Sounds like a plan! Welcome to the Stage32 community!

Hey, Al Garcia! Not sure if I introduced myself earlier, but my name is Kay, I'm the Community Manager here at Stage 32. Nice to meet you!

Ooo, Cuba? Would you be interested in participating in the "Paris, Je T'aime" challenge I posted in the Filmmakers Lounge? It's just a fun way to get to know people through their city:

Since you're making films on your phone, I would suggest checking out some of our blogs on cinematography:

I’m sure you’ve already discovered the Screenwriting Lounge (, but definitely reach out on the Acting Lounge ( for insight into characters, dialogue, and even when you want to generate interest in a virtual table read!

There is also a post in the Filmmaking Lounge that is great for networking and getting to know members through "The Film That Lit Your Fuse". I'd love for you to jump in on the conversation!

Enjoy exploring the lounges, and don't forget to comment and respond to others’ posts, too! It's the best way to really connect!
