Hi again! In my previous post I left off almost completely clueless. Well, I am happy to annouce that I am in LA and things are progressing well =)
I arrived in Los Angeles on Wednesday July 1st around 7:00 PM and headed to my apartment (I’ll post some pictures soon!) in Westwood, near UCLA. My roommate seemed very cool and we clicked right away! Thursday morning my rental car was delivered and I headed to the New York Film Academy (NYFA) in Universal City where I met with my boss, Dan, to discuss the details of my part-time internship. Basically, my job will be to maximize their direct marketing efforts across the Los Angeles area. Conveniently, my route begins with Westwood. I will be approaching various businesses, restaurants, shops, etc. about leaving flyers / hanging posters in their spaces. I am committed to this job for 2-3 days of the week and I basically set (and must keep track of) my own hours and document my progress.
The rest of the work week I will be spending in Manhattan Beach where the film Thor is currently in pre-production. I headed down there this afternoon for the first time, met all of the people, and received all of my necessary badges/passes. Tomorrow will be my first full day! The Marvel studio lot is HUGE…Currently, Iron Man 2, 90210, and a couple of other projects are shooting there.
To hear more about my first week (and my plans to meet celebrities :p), tune into YouTube Video #2…
P.S. We need to start a petition to bring Yogurtland to Columbus, Oh.
