Upcoming Meeting

Thursday, January 10, 2019 (doors open and check-in starts at 7pm)


Come get inspired at our first meeting of the year!



Join us for a  case study of the award winning feature documentary American Relapse that inspired Viceland’s 10 episode series of Dopesick Nation with Director and Showrunner Pat McGee of Pat McGee Pictures. 






Q and A following presentation with the PMP team:

Adam Linkenhelt (Co-Director of American Relapse, and supervising producer of Dopesick Nation)

Michael Goodman and Greg Taylor (DP’s of Dopesick Nation)









Independent filmmaker Noam Kroll returns to LAPPG to outline his key principles for building and sustaining a career as a content creator today. Using real world examples from his narrative feature films which have been produced on micro-budgets and self-distributed, Noam will break down the fundamental steps any filmmaker can follow to create, sell, and market their work to a global audience.



Noam Kroll is an award-winning Los Angeles based filmmaker, and the founder of the boutique production house, Creative Rebellion. In an effort to give back to the community, Noam launched a blog – www.noamkroll.com – in the fall of 2012 which has since grown to become a burgeoning resource for independent filmmakers, producers, cinematographers, photographers, and editors alike.
