Our first Monday in LA me and Sonja had back to back meetings in Burbank but the coolest thing about all of our meetings that day was that we were meeting with other women in the industry.
- We met with the VP of Development and the Director of Content Production at Crypt TV and talked all things horror. (Did you know that the primary audience for horror shorts is tween girls?)
- We met with two lovely female executives at Paul Feig's new company Powderkeg Media: a digital content company that focuses on championing new voices with a commitment to female and LGBTQ creators and filmmakers of color.
- Last but definitely not least we met with Kr Squared Productions, a mother daughter production team, that is kicking ass and taking names. They started their business before there was much support for women in the industry and now they have a new show called "Cupid's Match" on CWSeed!
Spending much needed time with my brother and several friends who have migrated from NY to LA made this trip even more special. A dear friend of mine, Betsy Spina, works at Radio Disney Country in LA. Not only did I get to visit her and see where she works but I also got a tour of the Disney lot! My inner Disney princess has never been happier. One of the coolest things I saw was the original camera that was used to film "Snow White!"
Happy to be back in New York feeling inspired, while California dreaming of warmer weather and streets filled with stars.
Love Always! Xx
