Producing the 2022 Golden Globe Awards
I started with nothing and went on to become a 5 Time Emmy Award winner, sold movies to every conglomerate in Hollywood (including Disney & A24), and produced 3,000 + episodes of network television.
More importantly, I want to help.
It is extremely rare that someone with 30+ years of success in media is willing to share his secrets and mentor the next generation of stars. But this is what I find meaningful!
You've heard the phrase, "It's all about who you know”, and I can be that insider to help you kick down doors!

Studio executives in media must constantly evaluate potential projects and make high-stakes decisions about which films or TV shows to greenlight, taking into account both creative and financial considerations. Securing funding and managing budgets for various productions can be demanding, as they strive to ensure a healthy return on investment for the studio. Competition is fierce in this field.
As a newbie producer in media, challenges include a lack of experience and network, difficulty accessing funding for projects, and facing intense competition in the industry. Handling rejection, long project development cycles, and high-pressure situations are also part of the demanding journey to success.
Securing auditions and landing roles is a constant struggle, as the demand for acting opportunities far exceeds the available roles. Additionally, actors must cope with the pressure to balance artistic integrity with commercial viability, while also facing the emotional toll of frequent rejection and the need to navigate complex contractual and legal matters.
It's a struggle to break into the industry without a significant portfolio or established network. Acquiring funding for their projects can be a daunting task, as investors may prefer to work with experienced directors with a proven track record. You must handle the pressures of leading a production, managing a team, and ensuring the project's timely and successful completion.
The simple answer is that there is NO OTHER course like this. There are no instructors in media that have produced the Golden Globe Awards, the O.J. Simpson Criminal Trial for ABC News, The Olympics for NBC Sports, movies for Disney & A24, the Super Bowl in virtual reality, created more than 3,000 episodes of television, won 5 Emmy Awards and has been working in AI content creation since 2015.
This is a one-of-a-kind class with no equal. I deliver in business and will deliver excellence in education.
I'm Neil and I wanted to work in media & entertainment since I was a young kid, or at least that's what I thought.
It turned out, what I really wanted was to have a lifestyle that allowed for freedom and creativity. I wanted to be able able to travel the world on a whim and create entertaining and inspiring content. It didn't happen easily, quickly or without significant challenges and soul searching.
Everything great requires work to achieve it and to keep it. I want to see others make it to the top of their fields and I will share the secrets that led to my success.
