Surviving Hollywood panel at CSU Fresno Summer Arts tomorrow

Maybe, if all goes well, one of these days we'll all be able to make it in Hollywood. The reality is that it's probably not gonna happen but in case you do make it, how are you going to survive? Well here comes the Summer Arts program at Fresno State to answer that very question with their panel Surviving Hollywood. The panelists will include:

Michael BerlinA screenwriter and playwright. He has written, produced, or consulted on more than 150 television episodes, for series ranging from Miami Vice, MacGyver, Hunter, Cagney and Lacey to Sisters, Murder She Wrote, Diagnosis: Murder, The Commish, Beauty & The Beast, The Outer Limits, and many others

Alan JacobsA founding trustee of the Sundance Institute, an original board member of the Independent Feature Project, and a former trustee of the American Film Institute. His independent film and video production company, The Film Foundry Inc., is a signatory at the Writers Guild of America.
Matthew JacobsScreenwriter, director, and producer. His credits include Mothertime (BBC), Lassie (Paramount), Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (Lucasfilm), Dr. Who (Fox), The Emperor's New Groove (Disney), and more.

John SchimmelProducer and Vice President of Development, Ascendant Pictures. His credits include Collateral Damage, Only Hope, Outlander, The Big White, and more.

Jule SelboProfessor at California State University at Fullerton and professional screenwriter. Her credits include: Hard Promises, Hunchback of Notre Dame II, Cinderella II, Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, Melrose Place, Life Goes On, HBO's Women Behind Bars, and more.

Never heard of any of these people but their resumes look mighty impressive! I've always wanted to attend the Summer Arts stuff but it always becomes a time issue (the whole "full time job" thing kinda gets in the way) but this event is open for everyone and is late in the evening. The panel is this Wednesday, July 9th at 7pm at the Wahlberg Recital Hall and should be the perfect place to get your learn on about all the Hollywood mumbo jumbo. Tickets are $7 for students and $10 for general. For more info, head on over to the official site for the Summer Arts program here & hope to see some of you there!
