Breaking Into Hollywood
When screenwriters ask an industry insider for advice, the most common response writers hear is, “Move to L.A.” But Jeanne Veillette Bowerman says, “Not so fast.”
Jeanne has built a strong network for herself right from her country home in New York State while only making a handful of trips to L.A. a year. She’ll show you her key secrets and how to navigate the plethora of social media outlets available.
This OnDemand webinar covers creative, out-of-the-box strategies to use right from the comfort of your home, miles away from the Hollywood hills, and still have a shot at breaking down the barriers and breaking in.
Learn the secrets to preparing for a successful trip to L.A. and how to continue building those relationships after you’re back home. When you live far from L.A., networking is crucial. Learn the enigma surrounding networking—and find out how to create a strong community of support.
