I’m often asked by many undergrads and alumni, “How do I get to Hollywood?” or “How do I start a career in entertainment?” You’ve seen the emerging talent on this site. You’ve seen the success stories. But how do you get in on the action?
So far I have been posting some great individual’s paths to success here, but starting today, Im going to start up a “Tuesday Tips” series which will go deeper into pursuing a career in entertainment and help answer the following questions:
1) What should I do to have a career in entertainment?
2) What internships should I be seeking out?
3) What resources are available to me?
4) Which Penn alumni should I be speaking with?
5) What do I do to pursue a job when I get to Los Angeles?
These tips come from my personal journey out here in Los Angeles over the past 10+ years pursuing a career in acting and writing. I will also have alumni in other entertainment verticals out here (agents, assistants, film & TV producers, filmmakers) offer some tips within my posts.
