Behind the Velvet Curtain at the Newport Beach Film Festival
The wide world of film festivals isnâ€™t something a lot of people really know about unless theyâ€™ve gotten an up-close and personal introduction. I got mine during my last year of film school. See, I was background talent for a friendâ€™s studio shoot when I met this guy who worked with the Newport Beach Film Festival and swore he could get us internships there. Taking him at his word, I drove out to the festival office, put in an application and was thrust into a world which has been a huge part of my life ever since.
