I'm an aspiring film maker looking to spend the summer in la to film a movie and network. But I've heard of racial tension between blacks and Latinos so is it really bad? Also is la pretty rough on people on the come up? In other words do you need money to get women? unless they're ghetto.

Check out the San Fernando Valley -- it's where others make the films that you're interested in making.

First off, where are you currently living and what type of movie are you trying to make? When you say you are an aspiring film maker, have you made some shorts or other films and looking to go into LA to do something bigger and find funding?

Also, how much per money can you spend on rent per month?

Are you worried about racial tension because you are black or Latino and have watch too many LA crime films?

Also, if you are going to be busy trying to make a film and network during the summer, forget about the women. You don't need money to find good women. If you meet a woman who's telling you that you need to spend $X amount on something, you're with the wrong woman. Obviously, it helps not to be broke, but having a ton of money is not a prerequisite.

Some of the ghetto women are probably some of the biggest gold diggers...because they don't have their own gold.

It's of course going to be tough just coming in and trying to break into the most competitive industry in the city.

You should really have something you've done moving here or spending the summer here.

Even people that have lived here and have connections are struggling to make it in entertainment.
People come from not just all over the country ,but across the world to L.A every day for a chance at success.

Just like most cities, the nicest and safe parts are the most expensive.
Dont worry about women , focus on your career if you are serious about it
