So where do the film/TV sound guys hang out?

I'm trying to learn more about film and TV sound work, i.e. the on set/location recording, gear, set ups, etiquette, and networking so I can maybe try to get on some film and/or TV work.

Where do these guys hang out? Doesn't looks like GS really has a dedicated film/TV forum, unless I missed it. (The Music for Picture forum seems to be more focused on scoring and composition, etc...)

Any pointers on where to look?

Facebook has quite a few film and TV groups.
Some of the manufacturers of film and/or TV gear are also present there.

This forum is the best I've found for location music recording, bar-none. But motion picture dialog recording is a different and just as esoteric a specialty, and the best place I've found for info on that is JWSound. Really good professional level forums are well-"curated" by an expert host with serious cred and experience in that field. As Steve Remote is to location music work, Jeff Wexler is to motion picture production sound. Both take a personal interest in keeping their forums civil and informative. JWSound is a place where a well-informed newb can ask a thoughtful question and have it answered by Oscar winning mixers who have recorded hundreds of big movies, for instance. Do check it out.

There are a few bars in Hollywood and Burbank where these guys hang out. Buy them a drink and they won't stop talking.
