Is it produced work like tv? Try the producer or reach out directly to the editor. If it’s social maybe record it off your phone screen. Otherwise be persistent and ask anyone and everyone involved in the project. Someone will get it to you

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
