Brunch for Better

Remember the 200 Etsy hearts from Heck Yeah Party Shop? Well, it took me a good 8 hours to unwrap and tie the hearts with the USBs to the postcards. It was tedious but all worth it. The postcards were for the Brunch for Better put on by Janine Just and her team for the Creeds Collective final event to build awareness for Global Citizen in Soho. The event was a huge success, and the likes of Phillip Bloch attended!

Urth Cafe

I’m pretty sure that this was Friday morning. The Urth Cafe. So fantastic. Our hotel was so near, we technically could have walked to it. The Urth Cafe specializes in organic coffee and food. As my friend suggested (good idea), i slipped some of my postcards into the plastic holder. See if you can spot them.

L.A. Day 1 continues

Then it was on to Appian Way (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Nuyorician (Jennifer Lopez) Productions. I really didn’t think that with all the tight security there might be a problem.

We went to Appian Way on Sunset and managed to walk right past the cleaning people who paid us no attention. At the door, i slipped a couple of cards under the door while my friend held the elevator.

At Nuyorician Productions we did the same, only the door opened just as we were getting onto the elevator. But even to get into the building is another story, we first had to enter the parkade and take the elevator up to the correct floor as the front door was locked.

It definitely isn’t easy to gain access to big production companies when you don’t have an appointment!

Are You Ready?

After the two casting agencies, we were on our way to Bad Robot and Bruckheimer Productions. Two places, very close together. Bad Robot is J.J Abrams’s production company. The sign “are you ready?” is on the door to the office. There was no door bell or anything like that so i put some post cards through the door and some on the cars in the back.

At Bruckheimer Productions, there was no door. Just a nice security guard at a large gate who took my postcard.

Casting Director Agency

Later that day we visited one more casting agency… Bluewater Ranch Casting, the office of Mindy Marin to drop off cards. The office was really cute… it was in the back and it looked like a litlle farmhouse. Here is a picture of Rachel Bilson coming out of the office (not on the same day).
