From the bestselling author of Hollywood 101: The Film Industry
No one can get to the top of their game by sitting at their desk waiting for their career to break. Frederick Levy refused to wait around and now, not yet thirty years old, he’s a successful VP at a major production company, a lecturer at UCLA, and has written three books. Here, in The Hollywood Way, he shows you how you can use the methods and madness of Hollywood to reach the top of your field.
Levy’s wide-ranging and easy-to-implement tips are applicable to every career, from the mailroom to the boardroom. The only requirement is you must be looking to become first in the pack and move ahead of the curve. The Hollywood Way includes advice about managing your day-to-day duties more effectively, leaving you time to focus on the bigger picture and bigger ideas, and provides the ultimate look at “networking” and how to network quickly, seamlessly, and in a way that leaves people hoping you’ll call them. You’ll also find organizational ideas you’ll be able to use right away.
Levy has culled tips and advice from a wide range of Hollywood power players, including Kevin Williamson, writer of Scream and creator Dawson’s Creek; Bruce Cohen, Oscar-winning producer of American Beauty; and Brian Singer, a feature film director.
