From the Publisher
Making it in Hollywood IS possible. But only if you have a strategy. That is the message of Frederick Levy's Hollywood 101: The Film Industry And Frederick Levy should know. He did it himself. And he knows the other ambitious young filmmakers who are on their way to being the next big producer, head of development, or studio executive. Levy knows them, works with them, hangs out with them. He has heard all their war stories, how they got their first gigs, what they had to do to draw attention to their talents and abilities, and how they rose to where they are now.

This fascinating and comprehensive book breaks down the film industry and tells you exactly what it takes to crack into each market (except acting) and then parlay your entry-level job into a showbusiness career. Hollywood 101 is the story of how Frederick Levy came to Hollywood without knowing a soul and became a serious player. But it's not just his story. It's a game plan that will get you your shot as producer, director, writer, production designer, agent, or any other behind-the-camera profession you want to pursue.

More than simply a technical how-to book, Hollywood 101 is full of inside stories and advice from industry leaders, including directors Jon Turteltaub (While You Were Sleeping, Phenomenon, Instinct), producer Debra Hill (Halloween, Fisher King, Crazy in Alabama), screenwriters Dean Pitchford (Footloose) and Daniel Yost (Drugstore Cowboy), production designer Gary Wissner (8mm, I Know What You Did Last Summer), cinematographer Stephen Katz (Gods and Monsters, The Blues Brothers, Baby Geniuses), and dozens more.
