Body:

Aaron Lam, a senior development executive from Sam Raimi’s production company, Ghost House, spoke to indie writers and producers at a Sherwood Oaks College event in Beverly Hills on July 14, 2011.

In the one hour event moderated by Lee Denny, Aaron Lam discussed the process by which scripts are acquired and developed by Ghost House. He revealed his background in engineering and his decision to move into film production. He described several new media projects and discussed the current climate for independent and studio film projects in the entertainment industry.

Sherwood Oaks College, an innovative program for developing writers, actors and producers, Sherwood Oaks has been in constant operation since the 1970s. Past students have included James Cameron, Sylvester Stallone, Nancy Myers, and Paul Haggis.

Gary Shusett, Founder of Sherwood Oaks College, said, "Our film school events are unique in several ways. Usually we have less than twenty-five students in a course and every student is allowed to speak with guests. Our classes travel to meet very high level entertainment industry professionals face to face in round-table events that are business meetings not classroom lectures. Our students ask questions and get advice related to their objectives in the industry. Our classes are almost exclusively filled with working professionals looking to take their next step up in the industry. Many of our students have credits. We have producers with multiple indie films under their belt, writers who've sold scripts, actors who've had featured performer or starring roles in films and television shows, etc. That's important because it means high level industry professionals actually benefit from coming to our events. They know that they will meet innovative pro-active well-prepared people ready to take the next step in their professional careers, not people with a sudden whim to work in entertainment."

Christine Owens, who coordinated the Top Talent - Actor/Producer course, said "In three days our group met more than 18 development professionals including Alan Lam from Sam Raimi’s Ghost House as well as key decision-makers from Steve Carrel's production company, Natalie Portman’s production company, Jamie Foxx's production company, Pierce Brosan's Production company, Zac Efron’s production company and on the last day in a breathtaking meeting, Actor/Producer Mike Farrel. In every one to two hour meeting, the guests were cordial, polite, informative, supportive and interested in the work the attendees were doing."

Nancy Fulton, writer/producer from High Value Viral Media said, Aaron Lam was brilliant. His candid, intelligent comments about the industry were very valuable to me, particularly what he had to say about new media funding, production and distribution.
