“But I didn’t go to film school”

So you didn’t get into the graduate film program at USC, and you don’t have a Masters in creative writing from Columbia but you are convinced that you and your great idea are just a meeting away from securing a commitment from a major studio and as a result turning “you” into the industry’s next mogul. Well all I have to say is “GOOD LUCK”, because you are going to need a boatload of it. In future postings I will begin to present some of the knowledge I have obtained over the last 2 decades from actually selling ideas to all forms of broadcast media. You don’t need a Ivy league degree to do so but you do need to do your homework and someone willing to let you in on how things really get done.
