All the Doors to Hollywood and How to open Them By Anne M. Strick

In this day and age of the new paradigm of making independent films, You tube, and Kickstarter, a book such as Anne M. Strick’s book, All the Doors to Hollywood and How to Open Them, is a necessary tool for those wanting to get into the Entertainment Business.

In a simple straightforward manner, Strick tells you of many of the behind-the-scenes jobs, such as gaffers to Transportation Coordinators. Find out stories about famous actors and movies that are intriguing inside this book.
You will learn the language that insiders use, which can make your dreams of Hollywood come true, be it as a writer, director, technician, or actor. I highly recommend this book for those interested in the film industry.
