The financial success of Hollywood movies is largely dependent on the star power backing them.  Since most of us don’t have the money to hire Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise, we can go for the next best thing... your local newscaster!
In this module, learn the best way to approach local celebrities, how to use them, and the secret benefits they can bring to your movie. Working with local celebrities will not only improve the visibility of your production, but lead to a number of other benefits that can not only help promote the movie, but assist greatly in production.
