    • What we'll do
    This is simply a networking group for writers, filmmakers, actors, production people, and whoever else wanders in!

    We have guest speakers every month. This month's speaker is new media guru Frank Chindamo!

    THINK YOU NEED AN AGENT or MANAGER?  THINK AGAIN!
    Professor Frank Chindamo will show you the path to success without an agent!

    Frank Chindamo founded and runs Fun Little Movies, one of the world’s top producers of comedic “Advertainment” videos for the web and TV. Fun Little Movies (FLM) has won over 30 awards for its work and has been lauded on the front pages of Forbes Magazine, the LA Times, and in the Wall St. Journal, NY Times, CNN, USA Today, etc.

    FLM has made videos and video series for numerous brands. They have most recently produced the web video series for Intel’s new Pocket Avatars app and created for Kingston Technologies to promote their new wireless data drive, averaging 200,000 views per episode. Before that they created a video for eVite to promote their new Paper eVites; it appeared on their Facebook page with 100,000+ Likes. Also they produced Radio Shack’s commercials for the release of their over-the-top TV box. And FLM’s own Roku channel review is: “The shorts are eclectic and ironic. It’s as though Vine and Netflix merged into one service.”

    FLM has also written and produced four other animated videos or series for the Planet Green TV channel to promote their channel – and green living – to kids and adults, similar to their Lime.com series starring SNL’s Victoria Jackson. They have also created a pilot promoting the children’s indoor playground franchise Jump and Jacks, and a pilot for promoting the video game CakeMania, where they created a back-story for the game’s main character.

    The un-branded series FLM wrote and/or produced include the winner of Mobile Content World’s Grand Prize, where Fun Little Movies’ President Frank Chindamo was awarded a Chevrolet automobile by Kevin Spacey for Turbo Dates, (starring NBC’s Whitney Cummings.) FLM also produced the multi-award-winning series Mr. Wrong. And FLM has the most-watched series on the YouTube-funded, family-friendly channel AlrightTV. In addition Frank produced the video for Titanic and Avatar producer Jon Landau’s TED talk.

    Finally, Frank created the courses and is an Adjunct Professor of web video production and monetization classes at USC, UCLA, Chapman U. and Emerson College. His students have included Primetime Emmy Winner Bernie Su, billion-hitter Freddie Wong, and 5SecondFilms. In 2016 Frank was voted the Adjunct Professor of the Year at Chapman University’s Dodge College out of 120 other professors. He co-wrote the books YouTube Success in 5 Steps and Internet Stardom and serves on the Board of Directors of the International Academy of Web Television. And here’s a link to his multi-city speaking tour of Australia. MFA: Columbia University, NY. BFA: NYU.
