Hollywood From the Inside

HOLLYWOOD FROM THE INSIDE is an entertainment-focused career acceleration 2-day course held on the Tempe campus and open to all ASU students pursuing careers in the entertainment business. Learn the skills you’ll need to jump-start your career in the competitive business of entertainment.

Last spring’s course was taught by veteran Hollywood and independent film producer, Judd Payne, Head of Production and Development at The Hideaway Entertainment. Mr. Payne gave students a comprehensive look at the film, television, and new media industry with insight into key companies including production and distribution companies, studios, talent agencies, management companies, law firms, guilds, unions, as well as foreign sales and film/TV financing companies. Students walked away with a list of top industry companies, an understanding of the sort of projects each company is looking for, and a familiarity with some of the key players in the industry. Mr. Payne’s credits include BERNIE, SLEEPLESS, THE KEEPING ROOM, the FX/George Lopez sitcom ST. GEORGE, and most recently, MILE 22, starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Pete Berg.
