Reg. Price $22.95 US Hollywood Drive: What it Takes to Break in, Hang in & Make it in the Entertainment Industry is the essential guide to starting and succeeding at a career in film and television. Written by a successful Hollywood insider with over twenty years of experience (including work on films such as "Titanic"), Hollywood Drive will give the tens of thousands attempting to enter and become successful in the entertainment industry each year the edge they need to battle against the intense competition. Hollywood Drive is not merely a book about what it takes to get your foot in the door. It goes beyond that by offering you the tools, attitude, philosophy, and road map you'll need to give yourself a good fighting chance at success, whether you are looking for your very first job or for a strategy to move your career to the next level. This book will allow you to proceed with your eyes wide open, knowing exactly what to expect. As surely as moths fling themselves at lightbulbs and lemmings hurl themselves into the sea, so too will hundreds of thousands of people per year try to enter and make it in the super-competitive film/TV industry. Film school prepares students to write a script and operate a camera but does not equip them with the knowledge to get a first job, much less move up. This book will be an indispensable resource for this group. Unlike other career books, it is written by someone who has actually made it in Hollywood and has the credentials to give advice. ©2005, 400 pages.
