Podcast Launch Spring 2019

Any endeavor of high worth takes lots of hard work, implementation and time. Most of the time when we hear of overnight successes, delving into the backstory reveals that the “overnight” success was the result of many years of work. It is just that when it pays off, and things click the results are exhilarated, and the impression to onlookers is that the success was ‘overnight.’

So, too is it the case with the entertainment business. While some are fortunate enough to hit or click right out the gate, that is indeed the minority. So, too is the case of getting The Hollywoodland podcast launched.

After having my screenplay “Prying Eyes” selected by the Beverly Hills Film Festival I was able to attend the festival for its full duration. It was a wonderful experience that brought me the opportunity to interact with other like-minded creatives.

I now have the opportunity to attend the American Film Market, one of the largest “trade shows” of the independent film industry.

In addition, I am working on the beginning steps of launching the 10K Film Project. A project that I hope to make a yearly event that will showcase and bring to the screen an up and coming filmmaker, director, and actors together in a studio class film with a budget no larger than ten thousand dollars.

With all this, it looks like the podcast launch will be pushed back to the spring of 2019.  As with the film festival, these other endeavors are helping me to formulate what kind of content, experiences, and going-on in the business that will make the Hollywoodland podcast as useful and interesting to the broadest audience as possible of those that love the creative arts.

As always if anyone has any ideas on the 10K Film Project idea or The Hollywoodland Podcast, please get in touch. If you’re going to be attending the AFM drop me a note so we can connect. Alternatively, if you want to follow the progress of either join us on Facebook or Twitter.

Stay tuned…

Welcome To The HL Podcast

HL Podcast

Welcome to the HL Podcast. Please join us on this journey.

To learn about why we started this endeavor please check out our about page.

This podcast is about the film and television business for those that are in it or have a desire to be in it.

So many people only think of our business in the terms of stars. And yes stars are a large part of what drives the business.

Because in the end show-business is a business. Without the success of making money just like any other business, it could not survive.

But our business involves so many other hard working people and so many other components that most people never think of.

From the transportation department, set builders, grips, costume designers, hair and make-up professionals, the list goes on and on. It provides tons of very good paying jobs.

But more than just well-paid workers, it involves a lot of dedication and hard work to create the stories that move us and the entertainment that helps us take a break from the real world.

From the first moment that the words are put down on a page, to the casting director that works to provide the right people to make it come alive. The director who inspires the perfect performance, to the editor who delivers the perfect cut. It is the culmination of so many people with all the same goal.

Telling The Stories Behind The Stories

That is what our aim is with the HL Podcast. The delve into the stories of those that strive to deliver the final story to the world.

Actors, writers, directors, casting directors, producers, financiers, studio personnel, filmmakers, these are the people that we will talk to so we can bring you a view from the inside.

If you have a story to tell or know someone who does please contact us, as we look at this endeavor as a community effort.
