We Lady Geeks tend to get around in Los Angeles and this past Wednesday, SailorMizz and I were able to attend a mixer hosted by FilmBreak.com at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Actress and producer, Helenna Santos-Levy, have teamed up with FilmBreak to celebrate her latest project, Ms. in The Biz.
Ms. in The Biz is a magazine-style blog that will be written by over 70 female contributors who work in the Hollywood industry. Each writer will offer a different perspective about their lives, aspirations and projects in the entertainment industry. Helenna’s goal is to promote a positive and supportive community for women.
Our interview with the ladies pictured above, Brea Grant (Heroes), Leah Cevoli (Deadwood, Robot Chicken), Helenna (the lovely founder!) and Taryn O’Neill (Granite Flats) will be up soon. For now, enjoy our photos from the event after the jump.
The party itself was a lot of fun, full of people who were all getting to know each other and talking about their projects. We even spoke with Leah about the new movie project she is helping to promote, Blood Kiss, which will star author, Neil Gaiman and Amber Benson (Buffy).
The Tropicana Bar was a great venue, although after a couple of drinks, I consciously avoided the pool in the middle for fear of falling into the water. Otherwise, we were able to chat with some very interesting people who were mostly very excited for Ms. in The Biz and its future. We had a really good time so thank you to Helenna and her team for allowing us to attend and cover the event!
Met some very exuberant personalities that night, that’s for sure!
So many beautiful people hanging out that night. We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto — this is Los Angeles!
