Propaganda Films Building

In mid-March, we were fortunate to be able to investigate the historic former Propaganda Films building in Hollywood. Movie buffs will recognize Propaganda as the early home of music video & commercial directors turned major filmmakers David Fincher, Michael Bay and Spike Jonze, among others. Today the building is used by a production company as a workshop and studio. Carol did some research into the building and discovered that the [...]

Pasadena’s Suicide Bridge

After a crazy week at work, what better way to lift our collective spirits than to head over to Pasadena to investigate the infamous Colorado Street Bridge, which is locally known as Suicide Bridge due to the hundred or so people who have jumped from it to their deaths below. It was a chilly night and Carol had brought along some hot tea.  Also joining us was our friend Lenora, [...]

Sima IR Light Conversion

Having just had a conversation about IR lights with someone from another investigative team, I realized I should call attention to our “how-to” instructions detailing the conversion of a Sima infrared light to battery power. The Sima IR lights throw a wide beam of light compared to the comparable Sony IR model which is spot heavy and leaves you with video where the edges go to black. The greatest drawback [...]

LAGP at ComicCon (in spirit)

All you super fans headed to San Diego Comic Con next week need to look out for people wearing LAGP t-shirts.

If you see one of them, stop and ask for one of our cool stickers, which they’ll be handing out [...]
