LATEST NEWS's Alex is Moving to Los Angeles!

August 22, 2008

Los Angeles

Alex is moving to Los Angeles! I thought I'd let all of our faithful readers know that I'm moving this weekend from my humble home in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Los Angeles, California! I've been looking forward to moving for over a year and will finally be driving out all weekend long. Don't worry, this won't mean any major changes are coming. If anything, this will mean we'll be bringing you even more fantastic interviews, better feature articles, and more of the content you want to see. In addition to my move this weekend, I'm already preparing to hit the road again next week for a whirlwind tour starting at the Telluride Film Festival, then the Toronto Film Festival, then the Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.

If anyone is curious, my apartment is actually located in Sherman Oaks. I'm moving with a good friend named Harry from Colorado who'll be my roommate out here. If there are any LA locals who read the site, be sure to shoot me an e-mail and maybe we can get some drinks or lunch sometime. And if anyone else is curious, I'm not a newbie to LA. I've been there at least 20 times in the last two years (literally) since starting and I've come to appreciate the city, which is why I'm heading there. I'm not moving to try and become and actor or any of that, I'm moving because I've wanted to move somewhere and LA works best. At least we really will be able to connect Hollywood to its audience now!

I do have one request: I'm worried that it might be tough to stay connected with mainstream (e.g. non-Hollywood) moviegoers and the moviegoing experience outside of LA that I've come to love hear in Colorado. So I'm hoping that my loyal readers will help keep me grounded and in touch with the cinematic world that isn't entirely wrapped up in ego and looks. Otherwise, see you in LA!

    Thats awesome, have fun out there alex. What is colorado like though. Is it just snow capped scenery and mountains everywhere like you see on t.v.? Im in new york so you already know how it is here. The women in L.A. and the cars (if you love autos) there sure make it a great experience im sure. Hope everything works out for you and good luck.

  • jeremy
    whats up with all the love for L.A., that place is a smog bowl. the city is dirty, and congested. Hope you have been there before, because if u have not, I think you will be disappointed. I know you will prob make better connections,but that city does not live up to the hype.
  • Spider
    Awesome Alex! Have fun and good luck to you in L.A.! Be sure to share your adventures with us along with the usual flick info! 😀
  • Richard

    FS still plans to do events in Colorado Springs on Powers at the Cinemark. Just because Alex is leaving doesnt mean the rest of the FS guys are as well.
  • Jeff
    ArcLight Cinemas is the best place to see movies. You'll love it. There's one in Hollywood AND Sherman Oaks. Have a good trip.
  • Tim "Cloverfield"

  • Peloquin
    Very cool...I'll be moving out there in January and attending school at the Gnomon school of visual effects which your site played a part in inspiring me to do so we should get together sometime once I get out there because I'll know no one. Good luck and I look forward to more interviews and free studio contest prizes 😉
  • Devon Shaw
    Good luck Alex... and chance of a farewell party in the Springs?
  • dire
    @jeremy: Hype? Really? I thought it was well-known that there are many people who find L.A. a revolting place to live... But I like it well enough even though I have problems with the city. Eh. :) Sherman Oaks is a pretty swanky area, nice choice but I'm sure you're aware of that. Good luck, Alex!
