New to Seattle - Cinematographer Looking to Network!

Ethan Casner

What's up all. My name's Ethan and i'm a Cinematographer who until recently was based outside of Portland, OR. As of today I now reside in the "even-more-northwesterly" town of Seattle, WA. Where I know literally not one soul XD
New area = New opportunity though.. right?
Anyhoo, being new in the area I'm hoping to start making new connections; finding out who else in the area is into filmmaking, would like to be, or were perhaps just interested in exchanging details, talking shop, etc?
Other filmmakers, writers, actors/actresses/talent, costume and makeup, basically anyone either "in the industry" or "wants to be"; I'm looking forward to getting to know as many as possible and their own career goals and projects.
Just drop me a line or chime in here if you feel like announcing yourself!

Welcome to Seattle. You're already accustomed to the PNW so I'll spare you the clich├ęs. Best of luck in your new adventures.

Welcome to Portland's not so distant cousin! I am not in Seattle (moved east to Idaho), but grew up in the area and my dad is still an active Seafair Pirate there ;) I'm not sure if this would be a good resource for you, but maybe connect with some people from the Northwest Screenwriters Guild as they do lots of table reads and may need your services!

Hey Ethan!
Welcome to Seattle! I'm kind of new around as well. I arrived in NE Seattle just in time for the pandemic lol.
I'm a French American composer. I've worked mostly on french projects remotely though I'm super interested in meeting folks in the industry right here.

Hi Ethan,
I'm a DP here in Seattle but most of my work takes place overseas. Lately I've been trying to meet some local filmmakers since I basically know no one around here and there seems to be a lot of really talented folks! Would love to connect sometime soon, just hit me up!
