PROJECT RESTORE HOSTS 21ST ANNUAL LOS ANGELES HERITAGE AWARDS

On the evening of Thursday, September 10th, 2009 over four hundred leaders and policymakers came together at the Omni Hotel in downtown Los Angeles to enjoy a night in honor of those who are working hard to combat global climate change.

Project Restore’s Los Angeles Heritage Award recognizes individuals or organizations that have made outstanding contributions to the economic and cultural growth of the City of Los Angeles. This year, the Heritage Award recipients, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and the Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) proudly received their honors from Reverend Jeff Carr, Mayor’s Chief of Staff who presented the award to David Nahai and Gina Marie Lindsey. Both General Managers were there to accept the award for their respective organizations. Councilwoman Jan Perry was also on hand to present the Community Services Award, to USGBC-LA, accepted by Lance A. Williams.

 “This organization was founded to protect Los Angeles, utilizing the public and private sectors to preserve not only the architecture, but the culture of our city through the history of our buildings,” said Tim Psomas, Chairman of Project Restore and a speaker at the event. “It is a real privilege to be a part of this great organization.”

20th Annual Awards Gala
Over the course of a century of filming in Los Angeles, the major motion picture studios have told stories that chronicle the history, growth, beauty and diversity of an iconic city that has captured the imagination of film audiences around the world. On October 20, 2007, Los Angeles City Hall shined like no other night as it played host to an elegant black-tie affair in celebration of the Motion Picture Studios. The event was attended by entertainment business professionals, civic leaders and many public elected officials. The Motion Picture Studios were recognized for their countless economic and cultural contributions to the City of Los Angeles: Fox Entertainment Group, NBC Universal, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Walt Disney Studios and Warner Bros. Serving as the backdrop of many films, Los Angeles is one of the most accomplished actors in the business- playing both itself and other locales, from places as close as New York City to ones as far away as post-apocalyptic planets. It is because of this versatility that Los Angeles is one of the central hubs of the Motion Picture Studios and consequently the industry itself is an incredibly important contributor to the community. It currently employs nearly 80,000 workers and circulates roughly 31 billion dollars through the local economy and is an indispensable piece of this metropolis. An inherent piece of the culture of Los Angeles, this industry has become integral to the manner in which the city functions; L.A. as we know it would not be the same place without the presence of one of its most valued partners: the motion picture studios.

L.A. City Hall in the Movies
This historic, first-ever movie tour of L.A. City Hall was a huge success and completely “sold out.” Nearly 500 people registered and over 400 attended the free event to hear stories, see film clips and take one of eight tours through the main areas of City Hall, including the Council Chambers, Forecourt, Public Works and the Rotunda The tour coincided with City Hall’s 80th birthday and the 100th anniversary of filming in Los Angeles. It was made possible through the collaboration and unique partnership of author and film historian Harry Medved, the Location Managers Guild of America, the Los Angeles Conservancy, L.A. Councilwoman Jan Perry, and Project Restore. Location manager docents Kokayi Ampah and Elisa Ann Conant (Clint Eastwood’s FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS), and John Panzarella and Leslie Thorson (Curtis Hanson’s L.A. CONFIDENTIAL) spoke to literally hundreds of people over the four hour time span, helping to educate the public about the location profession in general, and what it took specifically to film their respective projects in and around City Hall. Docents from L.A. Conservancy provided historical background information and anecdotal stories about the building itself and pointed out how Project Restore worked to make City Hall the glistening jewel it now is after it suffered extensive damage from the Northridge earthquake in 1994. Harry Medved, co-author of Hollywood Escapes: The Moviegoers Guide to exploring Southern California’s great outdoors, kicked off the tours in the council chambers by showing a selection of clips featuring City Hall, and film historian Marc Wannamaker from the Hollywood Heritage Museum wrapped up the tour in the rotunda, conveying, along with each of the docents, the importance of “preserving” landmark locations through film, as well as by caring for and restoring the physical locations themselves. More than a dozen location managers and scouts turned out in support of the historic occasion and a number of films that used the downtown area to shoot scenes, from past to present, were discussed, including this summer’s< blockbuster, TRANSFORMERS. The event was well organized, well-received and, according to LMGA president Kayla Thames-Berge, “ended perfectly, with the final tour being able to watch a bus explosion being filmed off the forecourt, courtesy of SHARK location manager Murray Miller, who, despite his hectic schedule, even made time to speak to the group about the filming activities. It was a fitting end to a day that truly captured the communal spirit and unique challenges of filming on location!” Article reprinted by permission of LMGA, P.
