3 Tips for Hollywood Newbie's
Would you go on a trip if you didn’t know where you’re going? How do you navigate a route if you don’t know the final destination? Every year over 100,000 dreamers pack up their lives, quit their day jobs and move to Hollywood to pursue a career in the entertainment business; but most don’t have an address for their dreams.
There are 3 major steps you need to take so you can save time, money and create the opportunities you want in the entertainment business.
Step #1- Get Local Experience. First, make a list of all your skills.
Step #2- Make Local Connections- Maybe you’ve tried calling several key people in your area, but they are not hiring.
Step #3- Living Requirements- Most likely if you live anywhere else besides New York or Hollywood, you get a lot for your money.
Once you get to Hollywood, there are many options of ways to make money and still have time to pursue your dream career. Next week, I will share the top 8 day jobs in Hollywood.

Forgive us if the sound quality of this week’s show is a little shaky … With missed flights and broken laptops, it’s amazing we managed to get a new show produced this week at all (and closer to our usual Monday release than the past two weeks).
From the stumbling opening, to the less than elegant closing, your friends in podcasting are flying without a net this week. There’s no chance to edit or smooth out the audio levels.
The conversation is classic Chillpak, however, touching on topics ranging from the death of Harold Ramis to the careers of Boris Karloff and Preston Sturgess, from deadly on-set accidents to the difference between “victims” and survivors”, from Dean’s road trip with Billy Dee Williams to how the Oscar nominees for best picture rate in terms of their roles for women.
Don’t delay, enjoy YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour NOW!
It’s all about comedy on this week’s show … From Dean Haglund’s one-man improv at Sci-Fest 2014 to Dean and Phil’s movie The Lady Killers,, from a video demonstrating what comedic filmmakers can learn from Edgar Wright to the foreign distribution of American comedies, your friends in podcasting get serious about the subject of laughter. Heck there’s even the possibility of Phil directing a remake of Notting Hill set in … China?! All that, plus the peerless Maya Angelou is remembered. This week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
This show first became available in May of 2007 and the original description was as follows:
Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness bring you movie chat from the inner workings of Hollywood’s indie film machine.
Today’s Topics: Dean comments on a documentary he saw at the Silver Lake Film Festival called “Improbable Collapse”, a film he saw at , and Phil reports on a “star” ceremony in Palm Springs, the addition of to their Walk of Fame.
The guys also talk about “Spiderman 3″, “Waitress”, the MPAA and the history of the X rating, gaming the ratings board, and art vs commerce vs freedom of expression.
And oh yeah… they don’t accept screenplay submissions, just finished films.
It’s too darn hot in Los Angeles and your friends in podcasting are high as proverbial kites on codeine swirl frappuccinos!
Dean performed in a “Live Event of the Week” and this fact leads to a discussion of public transportation, the immune system and Biddy Mason.
Phil spent all week (and the week before that) trying to get their new film submitted to Sundance, and in the process watch documentaries about The Magnificent Seven, Sam Peckinpah and Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory. He also saw the last film to star the great James Gandolfini (and boasting merely the latest indelible performance from the masterful Tom Hardy).
Two “Lawsuits of the Week” are discussed, which leads to analysis of sexual abuse in Hollywood, domestic violence in professional football and the role of interns in show business.
A great comic and a legendary big-screen villain are remembered.
All that, plus much more … Pass the Chillpak. It’s too darn hot!
