Question by william p: I’m planning to become a film producer, How can I get an agent in Hollywood to represent me?
I plan to become a film producer and I’m developing a treatment for a feature film but I find it very difficult to find an agent to represent me. Most of them told me that I have to have someone to refer me but I don’t personally know anyone famous who can do that. Do anyone know any way I can get an agent without having to already know somebody that’s in the industry?

You’ve got it backwards, Skippy… You don’t start out as a famous producer. You start out at the bottom of the pile and learn the trade from the ground up. Once you have spent several years actually doing the work, THEN you may get an opportunity to be an assistant to a producer and work even harder to earn your place in line.
