Synopsis

What has Film School got to do with it? Nothing, when it comes to having a prolific career in Film and Television. It all boils down to a harmonic balance between art and mindset. This book is about bridging the What with How Hollywood truly works. Many business professionals get overwhelmed and confused on technique and access routes to pitch their projects so they are produced and sold. Having been part of the producing and selling process of movies that made over 900 million worldwide, I have a proven framework that will create a clear and easy-to-follow path for your creative endeavors and how to bust those doors open for your creative dream to become a reality.

There are many books out there about screenwriting, directing, producing, acting, but none has been created yet to help you understand the process of the Hollywood machine from inception to completion. Have you always wanted to get your book, script, or project in the hands of decision-makers but confused and unclear on how to use the effective words and right format? Are you scared at the thought of “pitching yourself or your art in the room”? Do you know the "essentials" of the Film and Tv Industry?

I have put together the exact framework to help build confidence in your work and yourself and give you the steps to convert your idea into a rock-solid, easy, and business-focused plan that will have maximum impact. I have sat in rooms where multi-million dollar movies and shows came to life to become Award winners and box office hits. I produced some of them and discovered the visionaries that created those hits. I even interviewed some on my five-star rated podcast THE HEART OF SHOW BUSINESS. If you are ready to transform your show business dream into a profitable mission, this book is for you.
The Heart of Show Business will take you on a journey of mastery in sales, creativity, pitching, business, networking, and the vital information on how to enter the Film and Television world.
