I received an e-mail last week from a reader in England named Nat Bocking, who has a background in Hollywood (check out his IMDB page) and now runs a blog called “The Water Tower Project.” A man of eclectic interests and a wry sense of humor, Nat has crafted a rather cheeky flow chart outlining the power structure of the Industry – who sucks up to or gives the shaft to whom. It’s funny, informative, and pretty much dead-on. Check it out at: http://watertowerproject.blogspot.com/2008/01/how-hollywood-works.html
In a follow-up e-mail, Nat added “I would like to encourage others to investigate for themselves how Hollywood works. I suppose I should revise it that Axium shafts everybody but that's a given.”
You got that right, Nat. While our system of justice holds the accused to be innocent until proven guilty – even the likes of O.J., Jeffrey Dhalmer, and Cary Stayner -- I personally feel that the bastards who drove Axium off a cliff should be beaten to a bloody pulp by the cast of American Gladiators.
Unless they’re innocent, of course. We shall see. The fallout from the Axium implosion has yet to be fully assessed, but one thing’s for sure: it’s gonna be ugly.
