City smackdown: Los Angeles love
Los Angeles - Hollywood, a place where dreams can come true.
My father came to Los Angeles at the end of World War II, to follow his dream. That's when I became familiar with California Dreamin'. There's many parts to play in this big city and some are not that glamorous in the Entertainment world, but no matter you're still a part of that dream team.
Most of us that have played our parts in production are very familiar with the early calls and late night preps. It's like any other job, except the foods better, the view pleasant and people are the same wherever you go, you have a mix of fun and unpleasant. But the entire process of producing something from concept to development, to pre-production, production and post production, no other work like it. Such a team effort of so many talented people.
The secret about the dream is in the City of Angeles, it materializes for all to see.
I've lived and worked in New York City and Los Angeles and given the choice, I'll take sunshine over snow any day.
