I don't think the tip will make a difference. That seems to be one area that is "free."
Santo's shop is in Northridge in the San Fernando Valley. That's about 25 minutes from Hollywood on a good day.
The shop your son uses will depend a lot on where he ends up working/living. A great majority of TV/film production is no longer done in Hollywood, but rather out in the valley. Hollywood, in general, is not a great place to work or live. But he will have a lot of choices out here.
Yes, I am still in the business. Shooting "The Price Is Right" and "Melissa & Joey," a sitcom for ABC family channel. Price is in Hollywood, M&J in the valley.
I would be glad to talk with your son when he gets here, give him a tour of the studio... He can check out what I have been doing under Keeth Lawrence on my IMBD page.
