Hey Everyone! Welcome to the launch of my blog Hollywood Bound and Down. What's it all about you ask?
I can tell you what it's not going to be about. This won't be about celebrity gossip and this won't be about my life on a day to day basis. For me, this blog is an outlet, a way of sharing what I’m going through in Hollywood with those who are interested. Along the way, I’ll offer some advice and opinions, based on what I’ve learned, I’ll link to videos and articles that interest me and might interest you, and I’ll share my experience as I try and make it as a writer and director. I’m not claiming to be an expert, in fact, I’m not even a sold writer yet, but I am on the bottom rung trying to rise. Rather than providing you with hindsight, I’m trying to give it to you as I go along.
Making a transition from student filmmaker to Hollywood is a daunting, difficult journey and every path is different. There’s no corporate ladder to climb, no clear route to the director’s chair or a bungalow on the Warner Bros. lot. I should know, I’m in the middle of it and I’ve got a Golden Popcorn on my shelf. So, maybe this blog can help you out.
This blog will be a little bit of self-promotion for my production company, Meydenbauer Entertainment, and I; a little bit of an advice column; and a little bit of check out this cool article I read or this cool video I just saw.
I also have a lot of content I've built up over the past couple years, production journals, tidbits of info, etc that I'll be reposting here for you to check out. And along the way, I'll have some guest contributors who will provide further insight into the business, as well as perspectives from those who have already found success: producers, writers, directors, creative execs, agents, managers, etc.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the blog. So, let's go.
