We had the good fortune of connecting with Sei Shimura and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sei, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk taking is one thing that all Entreprenuer’s have in common, weather it be successful or not. If you have an idea or vision to do something, but your worried that you might fail or have to invest too much money or time to follow your dreams. I have one thing to say. Ask yourself this. Would you rather be working day in day out on someone else’s dreams or your own?

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
MTLE studios is a Hollywood based art collective consisting of designers, fine artists, sculptors, wood workers, fabricators, photographers, and film makers. There are no areas of visual arts and production that we do not have our hands in. Our team handles large scale productions and installations projects from murals to trade show booths and activations. The limitless imagination of our visual artists are brought to life with our installation team creating an immersive experience for our clients.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
1: Griffith Park Observatory for a morning hike 2: NoHo equestrian center for a quick horseback riding 3: Hollywood Blvd walking tour , a.Northern Cafe for lunch b. Pressed Juicery for Juices, then the c. Funko Hollywood store to look at Pop dolls. 4. Then the Fairfax district for the afternoon for some window shopping a. Flight club to look at some shoes b. John and Vinny’s for some dinner

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
