AiF is excited to announce 


This Q&A series is exclusively for Industry members. 

Join us for 4 more sessions giving you an 'Insider's' guide to breaking into Hollywood - from the people who've done it.


Each session features a special guest working in the writing, acting, development or representation fields, talking about what it takes to break in, giving advice, and taking your questions in our intimate Charlie's office at Raleigh Studios. Space is strictly limited, so those in attendance will have a rare chance to speak directly to a working professional, and learn more on what it really takes to carve a career in the unpredictable entertainment industry. 


Our next Q&A in the 'Hollywood Hustle' series will be next Monday, August 13, with special guests from GRANDVIEW, a full service entertainment management company that represents actors, writers, and filmmakers across all mediums, and their production arm, AUTOMATIK. They will have a conversation with Tim Schildberger from Live Read/LA to discuss
