8 • LMGI COMPASS | Fall 2022 IN THE NEWS Aer two years of virtual programming, we were back again for the 10th consecutive year The "LMGI Hollywood Location Scouts" panel was part of incredible programming at Comic-Con International in San Diego. It was amazing to be able to come back in-person. The organizers did a phenomenal job in keeping all the attendees COVID-safe. Concerns about how many fans would attend the panel with the threat of a new COVID surge were quickly dissipated when the panelists found themselves in a room packed with eager attendees wanting to listen and learn from them. Moderated by LMGI President John Rakich (See, Shadowhunters) the LMGI panel highlighted the incredible work of our membership, featuring members Michael Buonanno ( Hawkeye, Spider-Man: Far From Home), Shasta Kinney Fortin (Westworld, Snowfall), Jason Nolan (Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Wynonna Earp), Zachary Quemore (Obi- Wan Kenobi, The Matrix: Resurrections) and Julieta Rey del Castillo (Ms. Marvel, The Suicide Squad). Panelists started with an incredible sizzle reel, featuring work focusing on before-and- after comparisons of various locations set to one of the most unique and perfect musical pairings we've done to date. The panelists spoke in length about the creative and logistical challenges they've had in their careers. Jason Nolan noted, "Comic- Con was a lot more than I expected. The experience of walking around and being a part of something with 100,000 like-minded people was incredible. The panel was fantastic. Meeting the fans who watch our shows and the interest they have in what we do both creatively and logistically is inspiring. It was also great to share war stories with my colleagues. It truly makes you realize we all do the same thing and deal with the same issues regardless of where in the world we work." Rey del Castillo said, "The opportunity to be a part of the LMGI panel was a dream come true for me. Looking out and seeing a room filled with people who are truly interested about the location scouting process, the logistics behind every project, and the overall scope of what it is we really do was an honor. My only wish is that we would have had a longer panel to accommodate more questions from the audience." This year's panel was generously sponsored by the following companies to whom huge thanks are owed for making this possible: Big Bear Lake Film Office, LMGI at Comic-Con L-R: President John Rakich, Shasta Kinney Fortin, Michael Buonanno, Jason Nolan, Zachary Quemore and Julieta Rey del Castillo.
