Inside Hollywood: Mindsets and Methods-on DVD Video (2-part series - DVD)
Split up into two parts that are both around fifty-four to sixty-four minutes in length, this DVD/DVD-ROM program goes over how actors, writers and directors can't solely rely on creativity and talent to be in the Hollywood movie making business. It's not called "business" for nothing. Directors, writers, and producers at Indiana's Heartland Film Festival go over in this presentation how it's important to be both business savvy and creative when working in movies or TV. Aspiring actors, directors and writers who want to work in Hollywood films and TV will appreciate this breakdown of how to use business and creativity to have success in a difficult industry to make it into the big time. Acting or film classes may also be able to incorporate this grounded perspective into their classrooms to give students the perspective that it's important to balance out the use of business and talent.
