Hollywood. It really, really is a
It really is a “who you know” kinda business.

Sweet! One of my dearest girlfriends wrote a book called “Soul Party” and even though it has yet to be published, she caught the interest of a screenplay writer out in LA. One thing led to another and next thing you know there is a production team and a script for a TV series called “Ghost Writer”.
I got to assemble the branding work and as you can imagine with almost no budget for marketing all of the posters were photoshopped together using stock images and few shots of the celebrities who volunteered their time.
The show is being pitched to the USA Network. But when it came time to film the pilot they suddenly lost their art director. Guess who got to step in? Yep, and after 3 weeks in Hollywood, I came back wiser and little more appreciative of the Madison Avenue style of art directing.
Even though I am very grateful for the opportunity...let’s just say working with Hollywood ego’s is a whole different playground. I’ll stick to my own sandbox...thank you very much.
