Acting workshop

I volunteered at the "Acting for Film" workshop today. It was held at an unusual venue: a place newly named La Perla del Mar (Pearl by the sea). La Perla is a converted Methodist church. The church was on the market, expected to be torn down, when Shelly Malcolm and her friend Garin Sinclair met with the owners to work out a purchase. The church was renovated in six months and opened last December as an event hall.

There was a filmmakers workshop in SLO at the same time, which I expect would have drawn some people who would otherwise have gone to this one.
