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.

the revolution of the mind continues...
Hollywood announced that a biopic on Black singer, Aailyah would be coming to the small screen on Lifetime TV.
Debate began when an actress who could who' nuff pass for white (but is actually mullato) was cast as the R&B Princesses with detractors on both sides.
The big question: Is it ok for Black "heroes" to be whitewashed on film - even if the person portraying them is half Black?

Now enjoy this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …
Back when YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour was just getting started (as "From the Heart of Hollywood"), it's quite likely that Erynn Petrulis was the youngest listener of the show, teen-ager, living in the UK, who had already acted on-stage with Dean Haglund (while he was touring the UK with his one-man "X-Files" improv).
Now, 7 years later, Erynn is a college graduate and a budding actress, having appeared in dozens of plays and short films. More important, she becomes the youngest guest yet on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
So, join us poolside, high atop the historic core of downtown Los Angeles, as the delightful Miss Petrulis swaps stories with her two mentors, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness
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.
