CONGRATS TO LAPPG MEMBERS FOR TAKING 1ST PRIZE AT “ON LOCATION: THE LOS ANGELES VIDEO PROJECT”
Writer, director, editor and LAPPG Member Shahriar Rahman teamed up with fellow LAPPG member and composer Matt LaPoint to create the short project, “Dream of a Resident Tourist” and took 1st prize in the 2-4 minute category at the “On Location:The Los Angeles Video Project.” This contest enlisted filmmakers throughout the Los Angeles community to act and serve as Ambassadors of LA and share what these artists call their LA; an insider perspective into this diverse, cosmopolitan city and its neighborhoods.
On October 20th, 2012 all the finalist films were premiered at a red carpet event downtown.

We thank Shah and Matt for sharing this project with us at our 2nd LAPPG Member Showcase!
