In today’s world, knowledge is power and with the changes brought upon us in the past two years, the ability to multi-task is even more imperative to your success than ever.
This week iHollywood Film Fest has created an opportunity for entertainment professionals to learn from a panel of experts on ways to maximize their careers in Hollywood and how actors especially can branch out into other aspects of the industry to propel their careers further.
With the rise of streaming services offering producers direct access to distribution and the rise of content on the small screen, the result has meant a shift in the ways films and TV shows can be produced and distributed. This effect opens up the door for actors and producers to start to create their own content on a commercial scale and start to adjust to wearing more than one hat in their career.
In this webinar, you will learn why it’s imperative to be able to wear multiple hats in entertainment and how various skills are utilized. Speakers are actors, producers, directors, hosts, journalists, publicists and interviewers. The featured panelists include Chance Spiessbach, James Pratt, and Jessica Ross
The panel discussion followed by Q&A. Stay after the Q&A for networking. The session will be recorded.

Chance Spiessbach, Chance TV
Entertainment must be unique & unpredictable in today’s over-saturated market. There is no need for forced laughs & smiles, as Chance & his guests genuinely have fun. As Ice T said, “I could talk to Chance all night.”
All talk shows have the same celebrities & entertainment news. Audiences chose one over the other for one reason – the host. Keep audiences entertained or your show is over with one click of a mouse or remote control. If I’m not having fun, then the celebrity isn’t having fun & the viewer already left to take a bathroom selfie, usually with the toilet on display.
His warmth, charm and quick wit are ideal for all environments; in studio, man-on-the-street, press junkets, event emcee, backstage or Red Carpet.
