Late to the Party but glad I'm Here - Director/Actor/Writer/Producer

Every now and then doesn't it make you roll your eyes at yourself a little bit when you put 17 (or 4) titles next to your name? Or is it just me? :) Hey everyone - I have only recently started getting hip to all that is Stage 32 - it was one of those things where I already had a bajillion social media sites and didn't want to keep up with another one. BUT thanks for being persistent RB because I'm glad I'm in. Just this month alone, I've watched 6 webinars and found tons of useful information. Oh wait, I'm supposed to be introducing myself. OK let's see - well I'm pretty excited to finally be moving to LA after working in film in New England for the past 5 years. I started as an actor and then moved into the production side of things, starting the company Sensorium Pictures. This last year for me has been a whirlwind of competition-based filmmaking - HBO's Project Greenlight Top 20 "Whiskey Boys" https://www.facebook.com/ProjectGreenlight/videos/vl.828410770573831/874... , followed by Wildcard winning/Top 4 Lionsgate finalist for a national comp they ran for female directors. https://www.facebook.com/twilight/videos/vl.137882239878254/101531236047... Now, thanks to the hibernation that is winter, we are almost at the finish line for my two-film short film "Cleave" that will be submitted to the 2016/17 fest circuit (you can see the first trailer here: https://www.facebook.com/whatsyourcleave/). I'm pretty excited about how it's shaking out. We're also finalizing the packaging for a Period Western (or Eastern as we refer to it) miniseries set just after the Civil War. * I would tell you more, but we haven't copy-written the new script yet and all that jazz. The second package we're working on is for a low budget family/holiday/dramedy/whimsical fantasy feature, "Charlotte Sometimes" https://www.facebook.com/charlottesometimesmovie/?fref=ts. This of course means treatments/biz plans, look books, briefs, character profiles, posters/promo material, and branding. It's pretty much essential that I do yoga every day or I'm liable to not fit in my pants anymore with all the time I'm spending with my computer. So there's that. Acting-wise, I'm buckling down on training right now. I'm enjoying the Masterclass with Dustin Hoffman and getting together with scene partners to work stuff out. Because of the move, I don't have more in production right now, but I'm cool with that because I get to studyyyy. Anyway, that's me. I have more stuff wherever @catecarson can be found - www.catecarson.com , facebook.com/catecarson and @sensoriump. Our sensoriumpictures.com site is under construction as we wait for @thegrid to finally be available to us. It's been in beta forever, but an AI website? Yeah I'll wait. So- vimeo.com/sensoriumpictures would be better for now. Oh btw - Christmas in 4 days. Final shopping reminder. You're welcome.

Great intro Cate. You've covered kind regards, multiple projects and a holiday shopping reminder, so I bet everything on your checklist is already marked off. :) You mentioned webinars so you probably already seen this one: https://www.stage32.com/webinars/How-to-Move-to-LA-and-Work-in-Entertain... But you haven't mentioned any blogs, so here are few that reference moving to LA: https://www.stage32.com/blog?search=moving+to+la I hope some of this helps. Cheers and Happy Holidays, Tomasz
