Your Hollywood Education

When you go into an interview, chances are the interviewer is going to ask you what your favorite movie/TV show is- of course you'd hopefully say something that's critically acclaimed. However, that's just the start!

In every internship in the industry there is an unspoken requirement: you have to know about the industry! That includes the major players (hello Spielberg), the blockbuster movies in pre-production (Avengers 2), and what is happening every day.
