If no one's taken this on, I'd be happy to do it! Anyone know if UCLA was eventually going to create one for us? I think I read USC does that for incoming students. Otherwise I'll set it up.
I created one for us! If you PM me your FB name, I will add you :)
I think UCLA will, but they haven't quite yet.


Hey all, incoming UCLA prod/directing hombre here. You screenwriters are much more communicative than the production group. Seems like a lot of you are interested in on campus housing, but I am looking around for roommates for a 3bedroom house about $800 - $1200 depending on where we look. I'd like to stay off campus so that I can pump any extra cash into my films. Anyone interested in living off campus and saving a few shells in the process, please PM me and let's start searching!

Finally catching up with all the new posts! I had a backlog of 900+! Congrats to everyone!

The idea of moving to LA with very few contacts and throwing myself into screenwriting is a little scary to me.
Don't be too scared. I moved out here with nothing but a ton of resumes to hand out in 2001 and I turned out fine. :)

teach me how to use this site and to like your insightful post!!
Anything else you need to know?

Hey all - first-time posting here. I'm going to UCLA for screenwriting in the fall and wanted to say hi to everyone here.
