Sherwood Oaks College Provides Superior Screenwriting Workshops in Los Angeles

eHow.com lists Hollywood school as one of the best, offering one- to four-day cutting-edge filmmaking seminars to students of all ages plus the contacts to succeed even in demanding circumstances

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Dec. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent publication on the popular eHow.com website listed Sherwood Oaks College as one of the best screenwriting workshops in Los Angeles. The school, which is located on Hollywood Boulevard, provides each student with cutting-edge filmmaking seminars which allows them to succeed even in the toughest environments at a very reasonable investment.

Sherwood Oaks College has also been featured in People Magazine and a number of film and screenwriting magazines. The school helped jumpstart the careers of Hollywood celebrities James Cameron, Sylvester Stallone and Nancy Myers. Stallone filmed the first Rocky movie while he was a student at the school and James Cameron went on to create many blockbuster hits such as Avatar and the Titanic.

"Thanks to Sherwood Oaks, I met Richard Chamberlain and Michael Madsen and got my film made, Strength and Honor. I was fortunate to be on the Today Show and have over 18 wins and 32 nominations. I am working on two more projects. William Morris has asked me if I would like representation.Thank you Gary Shusett!" - Mark Mahon

The school offers several different course styles each of which are designed to suit the varying tastes of different students. The most popular class format is named "Close Encounters" and with only 18 students per session, it's one of the smallest classes available. The remaining course styles are named the "Rotating Roundtable" and the "Panel Discussion."

Each course features film industry professionals who are available to answer questions and provide insights into how to succeed in Hollywood. Gary Shusett, the founder of the school said, "We open our contact lists to you. Nowhere else in the world is there an opportunity for this unprecedented access for such a small investment of both time and money."

A few of the classes scheduled for 2013 are already sold out. Prospective students are encouraged to visit the school's website to sign up as soon as possible for the remaining courses. The website, www.MeetHollywoodExecs.com hosts the Course Catalog, videos, success stories and testimonials. 

Top Talent class on January 29 to 31, 2013 along with the celebrity dinner provides a once in a life opportunity to meet such talent as George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino among other celebrities along with the officers of companies of top actors and directors who are looking for new material including your script.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
