The Real, Low Down, Dirty Truth about Hollywood Agenting
In this book you'll find everything you always wanted to know about the real, honest-to-not-so-goodness day-to-day inner workings of Hollywood. Not the glamorous Oscar-winning-Spielberg-red-carpet Hollywood. The daily grind of working Hollywood. For the very first time, a Hollywood film agent has opened up her phone sheet and crackberry to show us how agents, writers, and directors function in a world of producers, development executives, and studio executives. They only want to make a living, and sometimes get a movie made. Sometimes even a good movie. This isn't another book dishing the dirt about the rich and famous. It's a fresh tell-all translation from Hollywood-speak to plain English, a peek behind the wizard's curtain into a culture that's rarely captured without clich?? and hyperbole. You'll learn how to get an agent, how to keep one, what they do, what they don't do. You'll learn how agents navigate through the murky politics, and even why agents are such infamous liars. The last time a Hollywood agent talked about his job in a national magazine, he lost his biggest client, and almost lost his job. There are secrets and lies that everyone in the Biz knows, but nobody wants to talk about; lies that everyone tells so nobody has to admit the truth. That's all over starting right now. This is The Low-Down Dirty Truth About Hollywood Agenting.
