with Andrew Zinnes
Your script is polished and brilliant. Your emails are getting returned. You have, as they say, buzz. But what you don’t have yet is the lay of the land. Get the rough guide to Hollywood and make that first trip to LA fully prepared.
Make no mistake, Hollywood has a culture all its own, with rules of engagement and unwritten expectations of behavior which, when ignored, will paint you as a rookie instead of a player in The Business. Learn the differences between your agent, your manager, your lawyer and how they will work with the studios, the producers, the writers (you will most likely get rewritten) and find out how much you can earn writing film and TV in LA LA land.
