Two New Yorkers in Hollywood: How Do You Approach Someone You'd Like to Work With, but Don't Know (with Richard Botto & Bradley Gallo)

Posted by Taylor C. Baker

We all know the age-old-adage about show business:

"It's not what you know, it's who you know. 

So how do you get to know these magical gatekeepers of Hollywood? Do you bombard their office with postcards with your face on it? (No.) Do you Google sleuth to find out their home address and send them homemade cookies? (Definitely not, don't be creepy.) Do you find common ground (alma mater, hometown, etc) and compose a clever, short, personalized message to them? (Bingo.) 

In this clip from his FREE webinar, our Stage 32 Founder and CEO, Richard "RB" Botto teams up with fellow New Yorker, Them That Follow film producer Bradley Gallo to answer the question "how do you approach someone you'd like to work with, but don't know?"
