Hi everybody!

Spring has sprung.  The season is bursting with newness and vitality, much like recent productions being shot here at LCS.  I'm referring to the recent film and video projects produced by university and film school students on our stages.

A number of students have shot their theses or film/video shorts here for their school course work.  Although their hands-on production experience may be limited, their fresh ideas and enthusiasm are boundless.  It's exciting to see exceptional work being done by aspiring young filmmakers, and we are happy to be a small part of it.  We encourage the budding auteur by offering student discounts on our stage rates and equipment, plus our experienced stage managers offer guidance and support.  Students from Biola University, Cal State Long Beach, Los Angeles Film School, and Chapman University recently lenses their projects here.

In addition, we will again proudly host Los Angeles Mission College's Cross Fade Film Festival on June 9.  Screenings of student films will be showcased on our Stage A, and prominent industry vendors will be displaying their products and equipment.  Visitors will also get to see our sci-fi spaceship sets, once used in the immensely popular TV series, FIREFLY.  Check back in May for film festival updates.

FYI, our March Madness promotion is nearly over, and we still have a few rental days available before the month ends.  Book now, and get 15% off the base rental rate, plus our 3-ton grip package is included.  Such a deal!

Until next time.  Best regards,

Mary Claypool, Rental Manager             Patrick Mason, Stage Manager
