Great monthly meeting last night. Keep up the good work. Amazing turnout.
That’s what FilAm Creative member and actor/producer Abe Pagtama said when he attended the first networking and potluck event of the new year! Especially with the first guest speaker of the year, and the first time at our monthly event — Sasheen Artis, Chair of the Producers Guild of America (PGA) Power of Diversity Master Workshop.
At that January 28th event, she discussed about the PGA programs and the benefits at the Pilipino Workers Center in Historic Filipinotown Los Angeles.
It’s not about who you know — it’s who knows YOU, advised Sasheen Artis.
So enlightening and inspiring, listening to Sasheen Artis from the Producers Guild. I’ll be submitting my project as soon as my script is finished, says our new Director of Public Relations, Dale Edward Chung.
Speaking of “new,” we also introduced both our Board of Directors and a few of our new 2018 Leadership members.
Next, attendees of the FilAm Creative General Meeting participated in an “Ice Breaker” activity, of which, they introduced their fellow members to the audience as well as networking.
Tim Cruz, the 2016 Producers Guild of America Diversity Program Fellow shared his thoughts about the first FilAm Creative general meeting of the year.
Actress / Model Eva Yelena Rickert shares her thoughts about her FIRST FilAm Creative “Network & Create” Producers Guild of America Diversity Workshop & General Meeting Potluck of the year.
Writer / Model Sonny Viray, Jr. shares his thoughts about his FIRST “Network & Create” Producers Guild of America Diversity Workshop & General Meeting Potluck of the year.
Vice President Walter Talens sums it up by saying, Thank you to everyone who attended tonight’s meeting. Thank you for bringing the wonderful food or giving a donation in lieu of bringing food. YOU ALL made a successful FilAm Creative meeting for 2018.
Thank you to the leadership team members who helped make the event run smoothly too. Such a positive and wonderful energy to start the year.
