This week we welcome HBG Senior Researcher and LA resident Mandi Matz to the blog to talk about all things Hollywood – and in particular, movie magic and money. Mandi provides us with some great resources for finding compensation and deeper financial information on everyone involved in bringing entertainment to our screens, large and small. ~Helen
I’ve lived in Los Angeles for more than 15 years. While I’m not originally from LA, I think of it as my adopted home now. When I meet people from other states and mention where I live, I inevitably get asked two questions:
- Do I go to the beach every day?
- Do I see movie stars all the time?
The answer to both questions is “no,” but I did recently see a Hollywood A-lister at my local coffee shop.
