Film Works Celebrates One Year Anniversary!

Posted on December 13, 2011 by


Happy Anniversary!

Exactly one year ago today, Film Works celebrated its launch at Los Angeles Center Studios with the support of more than two dozen in-kind sponsors. If you missed the launch, please watch the following video from Shoot Movies in California, which was on hand to offer support and film the event:

Help Film Works Celebrate the Occasion and Earn a Free Film Works Hat!

To celebrate our anniversary, we’re giving away some of our brand new Film Works hats!  Starting today and through January 1, 2012,  Film Works supporters will be able to win a free hat for helping the campaign in one of the following ways:

1. Create an “I am Hollywood” Video.  Submit a 30 to 60-second “I am Hollywood” video to our YouTube channel.  The purpose of the “I am Hollywood” videos is threefold: 1) to put a face on those impacted by the industry; 2) encourage participation and engagement from its supporters; 3) and to provide a cohesive narrative from the tens of thousands of entertainment industry workers on why Hollywood matters not only to them, but to everyone in the Los Angeles area and California.

2. Become a Film Works Guest Blogger.  Write and submit one 250-500 word essay of publishable quality for the Film Works blog.  Topics could include, but are not limited to: a profile of a local business sustained by the film industry, or the importance of local filming you, your family or your employer.  If you’d like, you can discuss article topics ahead of time in the comments below.

3.  Become a Film Works Ambassador.  Have a lot of Film Works pride?  Then take it to the streets — and to the local businesses where you spend your filming-related wages.    Order a “We Support Local Filming” cling and persuade just one local business to let you post it in the door or front window.  Snap a photo of your achievement and send it to, along with the business name and phone number, so we can thank them ourselves.

That’s it, just do one of the above, send us the proof (, and we will supply you with a free Film Works baseball hat (of course, you could also just buy one).

It has been a fantastic year and it has been an honor and privilege to promote the film industry in California and help protect the reel jobs and the real impact they have in our state.  With your support, we can all help keep Film Working for Los Angeles and California for decades to come!
