Press Release Body = HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - May 15th, 2006 - Hollywood Connect, a non-profit organization that equips, educates, and unifies Christians working in the Arts and Entertainment industry, is now accepting applications for the 2007 renewal of its "360į Training Program: Comprehensive Training For Success In Hollywood," which will take place August 24th to November 3rd, 2007. Applications can be obtained at HollywoodConnect.com and are due by are due by July 9th.
This 10-week training program is designed to empower Christian industry professionals to be equipped personally, professionally, and spiritually for lasting success and impact in Hollywood. Recognizing that a career is only one aspect of life, the 360 Program addresses the whole person, teaching strategies that cultivate a holistic outlook on life.
Through weekly seminars and meetings with both industry coaches and professional therapists, participants will be empowered to:
. Build healthy intrapersonal skills and strategic interpersonal networks . Overcome professional and personal road blocks that hinder growth . Develop and practice leadership skills . Create a personal mission statement and a written 5-year strategy for a career and life in Hollywood
The Training program will be limited to twenty students who are actively working in the entertainment industry, and who demonstrate spiritual and personal maturity.
Hollywood Connect's Director, Michele Suh says, "We see many Christians focus their entire life in Hollywood ONLY on the professional aspect, their job... We believe that to have lasting success in this industry, one needs to address all areas of his or her life to flourish. So few take the time to do an inventory of WHO they really are and what they have to offer, which affects everything they do, the choices they make, and eventually, whether or not they'll make it out here."
The 360į Program faculty is made up of Christian Hollywood professionals who have proved its founding principles in their own successful careers. Last year's inaugural program was made a success though a variety of dynamic presenters, including: Dean Batali (Executive Producer, That 70's Show); Cherise McVicar(Senior Vice President of National Promotions, Buena Vista Pictures Marketing), Christinna Chauncey (casting professional and acting coach), Jim and Karen Covell(JKC Music & Director of Hollywood Prayer Network), Nancy Stafford(actress, Matlock), Korey Pollard (Assistant Director, Scary Movie 2, Monk), Lisa Carrell (Benefits - Paramount Studios) and Michele Suh (musician & Director of Hollywood Connect).
360į Training Program Alumni have described it as "truly excellent" and "outstanding!" One participant said, "I could not have chosen a better way to be so enriched in such a short time." Hollywood Connect continues to work hard to implement suggestions from past students in order to make this year's program more interactive, more practical, and a more satisfying experience in every possible way.
