RANDY BECKER (CEO of NexTV Entertainment)
"My name is Randy Becker. I founded NexTV Entertainment to give artists a REAL chance at having their voices heard in the entertainment industry. Creating great material is essential...but not enough. Understanding and embracing the BUSINESS is vital, as well. But to succeed, you must find the intersection of your goals, your unique genius, and what your 'target' needs to succeed. We help talented screenwriters, authors, filmmakers and entertainment professionals break through...on their own terms."
I have succeeded on both sides of the camera; both sides of the paycheck.
I built a career as an actor, starring on Broadway, TV and Film, THEN became a Producer, Literary Rep and successful Business Owner in the entertainment industry.
I’ve shared clients with top agencies (CAA, ICM, Gersh), I’ve set up TV, Film and Web Content all around town and I’ve helped artists and entertainment professionals get work at the studios, networks, publishing companies,
and the indie world.
But it wasn't always easy. I started with no connections and no clue how to get my career on track. I waited on tables, borrowed money from family members, put in countless hours of work only to see others get the credit.
"THE YEAR MY SON WAS BORN, I HAD 4 FULLY-FINANCED FILMS FALL APART."
That's when I woke up and completely changed my approach.
"I am excited to share with you the key elements that have allowed me to support my family, produce work I am truly proud of and build a life in this great industry."
