October 2017 - Special Guest - Tyler Zacharia

Business Side of Show Business

As we close out our 11th year we want to go out with a dynamite speaker, Tyler Zacharia.

This is an Invitation Only evening. To get on the VIP list, please email your request to We are limiting the seating to provide ample time for Q & A as well as one-on-one with Tyler, so get on the list early.

Tyler in a very short career is the Executive Producer of 

2017 - Waiting for the Miracle to Come (executive producer) (completed) 
2016 - Silence (executive producer)
2016 - The Ticket (executive producer)
2016 - Wildflower (executive producer) 


Tyler is a rare breed in that he is humble and fully qualified to present on the business side of show business. Tyler is adept at funding, managing and promoting million dollar budget films. Tyler will share on his journey, albeit unusual in that he 'fell into the business' and his business acumen which serves him well in Executive Producing. Unlike many in this business, Tyler continues to be grateful and stays grounded while dealing with Hollywood execs and A-listers like Liam Neeson, Olive Platt, Dan Stevens, Jessica Bell, Charlotte Rampling and Willie Nelson.
