January 10th’s LAPPG meeting was filled with high energy as we kicked off 2019 with two inspiring presentations. First we had director and showrunner Pat McGee come with his team to speak about how he went from creating the documentary “American Relapse” to pitching and producing a 10 episode docuseries for Viceland called “Dopesick Nation.” After the networking break we had independent filmmaker and entrepreneur Noam Kroll back to present to the group. This time he spoke about ways of building a sustainable career in filmmaking in 2019. Noam’s presentation was full of insights and great actionable steps that inspired us all. We are looking forward to 11 more fabulous meetings in the year ahead!
