I looked around the forums here and I saw that a lot of auditions and classes for actors are spread out LA but mostly near Burbank and surrounding areas. The job I have has two locations in Pasadena and another one in Century City. I saw the best central location for an actor would be in West Hollywood. Is that still the case? On the map Pasadena appeared closer to Burbank. Should I go to the location in Century City or in Pasadena? If I choose Century City will I be able to commute to work without a problem if I lived in West Hollywood?

Thanks!!!

pasadena is pretty removed from 'the industry'. however, century city is difficult to get to not matter where you're coming from. west hollywood is not far, but can still take quite a while with the traffic on santa monica blvd.

One can get to Burbank (where a lot of studios, radio, and TV are located) fairly well enough from Pasadena, and Hollywood proper isn't too tough either, but streets alone, even. Centry City is best for Fox Studios and Sony Studios because dealing with the west-side is ALWAYS bad. However, leave enough pad time from Pasadena and get to know street only routes because they are actually more consistent than the freeways which can be a crap shoot.

Default I agree fully....

and I still would say Century City for THIS purpose only, becuase I love Pasadena for eveything else, especially to live compared to Century "Busy" I mean City.
