November 15, 2016 -- Those hoping to make it in the entertainment industry can get some insider tips at a lecture series at Santa Monica College (SMC) starting this Tuesday.

Entertainment business leaders will share their stories and expertise during the series titled “Making it in Entertainment Business -- Our Voice. Our Truth,” school officials announced.

The series kicks off at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, November 15, in Humanities & Social Sciences Lecture Hall 165 with actor and producer Jeff Wood, who previewed a trailer for "Our Voice," the new documentary he directed.

The film offers "an intimate, personal view of the TV and film industries through the eyes of professionals of color," event organizers said.

A panel discussion and audience Q&A session moderated by SMC Communication & Media Professor Aimee Chen follows the film.

On Thursday, November 17, Alisa Ben, Adina Friedman, & Aimee Chen will present “Female Voices in the Music Business” at the same time and venue.

Ben, who is vice president of Strategic Insights & Research at Universal Music Group joins Friends At Work Partner Adina Friedman and Chen for a discussion on "the challenges, gender roles/expectations, outsider experience in the music industry, and more," organizers said.

The series concludes Tuesday, December 6 at the same place and time when Renowned award-winning independent filmmaker and producer Andre Gordon presents a lecture titled “Making it in the Entertainment Business.”
