LOS ANGELES, Dec. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For over 40 years, it has hosted some of the most successful seminars in Los Angeles. Students who attended seminars have gone on to win 29 Oscars, 12 Emmys, 2 Studio Presidents, and over $4B in box office sales. Become your own success story. Be part of the school that was featured in People magazine, US magazine, talked about in the Tonight Show.
Seminars are open to anyone interested in learning what it takes to succeed in Hollywood. You learn in a close encounter setting where seminars are limited to 18 students.
Seminars include guest speakers by some of the greatest Hollywood producers, executives, agents, managers, writers, and directors. It is a rare opportunity to meet and gain insight from working Hollywood professionals (12 different Hollywood professionals over 3 days).
Like me and many of our friends, we designed these seminars to empower the artistic desire and craft: how Hollywood decision makers decide on how to option a script, make a movie, distribute a movie; how producers, agents and managers chose writers; discover the traits that good writers possess and how new talent is hired; avenues on how a writer transitions to a director, how producers hire writers for assignments, how to get your script to producers without an agent, what is happening in the current market from working successful producers, get ideas on how to make your script more commercial, discover what is hot in the industry, what you need to know on how to succeed before writing or sending out your script, inside secrets and strategies to help you succeed in your Hollywood career, and much more.
These seminars provide rare insight. In addition, twice a year there are celebrity events where an outsider can meet and greet Hollywood actors and directors. The seminars are a platform where people learn from experienced Hollywood professionals. These seminars lend themselves to those curious about the industry, have a screenplay written, those who have won several awards or already established in the industry, all can learn and obtain those much needed contacts and insight. The precious insight that will be shared -- can often save hundreds of hours.
One of the secrets of being successful in entertainment business is to meet working Hollywood professionals as well as celebrities. Gaining contacts while learning first hand can be fun and rejuvenating as one works on their next screenplay or film project. This is where one often finds writers and filmmakers investing to bring their dream or career to the next level.
Although not guaranteed, often times, our students will get an opportunity to have a photo taken with a top celebrity at our celebrity events. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, check out our website and facebook page.
If you are serious about investigating the possibility of getting a movie made or taking your screenwriting/filmmaking business to the next level, then this is a crucial opportunity for you. Those who have won significant screenwriting contests have had opportunities to have their screenplay optioned. It is a seminar where passion and excellence in film/media are exhibited and your potential is unlimited.
Our next seminar is January 22 to 24, 2014 with a celebrity event on January 25, 2014. Events are available throughout the year. Registration is limited due to high demand and limited availability.
