Highlights of FilAm Creative’s Network & Create January 2018 Potluck with Producers Guild’s Sasheen Artis?

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.
