PechaKucha Presentation

How to FAKE it in Hollywood

PRESENTED ON NOV 12, 2015
IN ST JOSEPH @ VOL 3

"I packed up everything I owned into my little red Chrysler LeBaron convertible, (I know, right, gayest car ever, and this was before I came out, which is a whole other PechaKucha), and I drove 2000 miles from Michigan to Los Angeles, to follow my dreams."

Brad Gorman wasn't always living a tranquil life in Benton Harbor, MI as Communications & Media Manager for Whirlpool Corporation. Nope, not always. In his twenties he gave it a "go" out in Hollywood where he learned a thing or two about the industry, rejection, persistence and how to "FAKE IT". In How to FAKE it in Hollywood from PechaKucha Night St. Joseph Vol. 3, Brad shares his Hollywood dream of making it big. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, December 31st, 2015.
