Looking to start a community of collaborative multi-hyphenate film makers in LA

Joel Gutman
Sound Engineer

Hi, I'm a film maker in LA looking to meet some fellow creatives and potentially collaborate. I grew up in the DIY music scene of early 2000s Miami, and after three years of living in LA I'm looking for people who just wanna make stuff regardless of circumstances. I'm an audio engineer for Sony music and teach part time at an audio college for my day jobs, and I freelance for other studios as well as on set sound mixer/boom op. I came to LA to do more in the film world, and my hopes are to eventually write and direct a feature film. I have a few friends who I play music, make shorts and write stuff with and between the three of us we can do most of the crew work on a set. In fact my two friends work on commercial shoot crews doing camera op and grip, along with drone op for real estate agencies. I've been a professional audio engineer for 12 years and a drummer and guitar/bass player for just over 20. If anyone wants to meet up and grab some coffee and chat, I really miss being in a community of people that all work on great stuff autonomously and together. You help someone in an area they're weak and they'll do the same for you, we all win and we all expand our output.
