Introduce Yourself : Hi all, I'm Niina by Niina Pekkarinen

Niina Pekkarinen

Hi all, I'm Niina

I've just recently joined Stage 32 and trying to see what's in here. I'm changing careers at the moment and going more into the creative side. Would love to chat with you all and network.

Allen Lynch

Welcome Niina!

Shawn Speake

Welcome, Niina! I'm Shawn. Let me know if there's anything I can help you. You're in the right place for solid intel on the film business and more. What are you thinking of as your 'creative career'?

Niina Pekkarinen

Hi Shawn and Allen, nice to meet you! I've been working in marketing and comms for 15 years but I really want to create something myself. Hence, I'm writing a book in my native Finnish and I'll turn it into an English script after the summertime once my studies continue, I'm doing a BA in media production. I want to tell stories. I guess that sums up my creative side :)

Simon Driscoll

Hi Nina, very pleased to "meet" you

Allen Lynch

That's ambitious. Good Luck!

Karen E Ross

Hey, Niina Pekkarinen ! Nice to meet you! I was looking over your profile, but you don't have much there. Tell me about yourself!

Are you leaning toward writing? Acting? Filmmaking? Lots of free resources here, from Blogs, Lounges for discussions, to some free webinars as well.

Ooo, Spain?! 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:

Enjoy exploring, and don't forget to comment and respond to others’ posts, too!

Rowan Sutherland

Best wishes!

Richard "RB" Botto

Welcome aboard, Niina. And I'll echo Karen's comments...Tell us more!

HI NIiia- Yahoo- it's great to have you here. Welcome to our wonderful world of film, theater and TV. I'd love to connect with you and chat with you. I have a new PCTV 21 program I write, act, produce and do set design in Pittsburgh, PA . Characters I write and act are- 1) Dereck Shelton- new manger of Pittsburgh Pirates 2) Rubin "Hurricane" Carter and Apollo Creed. When PCTV 21 reopens- "Raiders of The Lost Ark" and Indiana Jones and cast. I'll meet Supergirl and go to class at Pittsburgh University for journalism with Kara Danvers, and go flying as Howard Hughes and "The Aviator". Stay connected. Peace- Ed Skirtich
