What do Levi's 501s and movie making have in common? Absolutely nothing. But from now until the end of summer, Levi's is sponsoring a film workshop inside MOCA's Geffen Contemporary in the heart of Little Tokyo. To be honest, the "workshop" is more like a full service production facility that is COMPLETELY FREE FOR YOU TO USE! They also provide educational events with working film professionals as teachers.

If you have movies on VHS or any older media, the Levi's workshop will transfer them to DVD for you for FREE! I plan on transferring my performance from Point Break Live to DVD. If you've never been to the show, the audience votes one audience member to play Keanu Reeves' role via cue cards. The joke is that his acting was so bad, anyone could do it! I auditioned and was voted in with the loudest audience cheer! Keeping with the theme of the early 90's, they gave me a VHS recording of the evening's show.
Here's my Phonotrope animation, "HeartBomb".
I still don't know how blue jeans are related to movies, but I'm not complaining if they're going to make free resources available to me so that I can pursue my dreams! For those filmmakers who complain that it costs too much to make a movie, you are now officially out of excuses. Grab that script you've been working on, head to the Levi's Film Workshop and turn your story into a reality!
