Before Josh Becker made movies with some of the past giants of the silver screen like Anthony Quinn, Josh grew up making movies with some of the current giants of the silver screen, namely his childhood buddies Sam Raimi (of Spider-Man fame) and B-movie legend Bruce Campbell.
Today Josh is a well respected film and TV director-writer, and the author of two other books. When he left his home in Michigan in 1976 at the age of 17 and moved to Hollywood, all he knew was that he was pursuing his dream--to be in the film business. Arriving, he found that dreams don't always work out like they do up on the silver screen.
Gaining a foothold in this notoriously difficult line of work requires as much passion, luck and ambition as it does frustration, heartbreak and folly. GOING HOLLYWOODis the true story of a driven young man willing to go to the ends of the earth in order to fulfill his dreams.
