10:00am to 7:00pm
Everything you need to know about writing, directing, acting, and doing business in Hollywood in one grueling, brutally frank, no holds barred mash-up conducted by veteran Writer-Director-Producer Eric Blakeney.
When I was starting out I went to all of the classes, workshops, seminars, lectures, everything that was available. And when I sat there, I made a silent request of the film gods to, please, let this asshole at the lectern tell me one thing that I can use in my career. It never happened. I promise to give you more than you can handle.
Most every class covers the essentials of structure and technique. What they never seem to teach you is what really happens on the inside. What goes on in that big room? How does a studio decide to give you millions of dollars for your project? How do you get that huge star to give themselves to you?
I have worked with Dustin Hoffman, Sandra Bullock, Johnny Depp, Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Brad Pitt, Val Kilmer, Kevin Spacey, Warner Brothers, Universal, Paramount, Sony/Columbia, Twentieth Century Fox, Disney, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX Network, USA, Showtime, and countless independent producers and companies.
The most important thing you can learn is how to manage your career. Nobody ever taught me that. Not at the level I want to bring to you. Come join me for an outrageously fun, often irreverent, and eye opening look at what you can expect in your Hollywood career.
