In 2005, Joel co-founded professional networking entity The All Cities MediaGroup (ACMG) with partner Eric Shaw, founder of the parent organization, The AllCities Network, to help aspirants answer these questions and succeed in these most difficult industries. As an independent filmmaker who knew all too well the pitfalls of pursuing a career in the competitive world of filmmaking, he also understood early that itwas not about what he knew that would make the difference, but who he met along theway that would most influence his achievements.

The opportunities ready to be taken due to ongoingparadigm shifts. We will learn about ?image? vs. ?reality.?
