We had the good fortune of connecting with Giovanna Salas and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Giovanna, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Simply waking up in the morning is a success, in my opinion. Every step you take after that, along with positive thinking, will help you achieve any goal. What keeps my Heart Of Hollywood Motion Pictures brand going is constant innovation. I pay careful attention to my clients’ feedback about what they want and need. This is where my inspiration comes from. Positive communication is the only way to improve our lives. Not a single one of us is perfect. We are all human and make mistakes. It’s important for us to be self-aware. We must be open to evolve and learn.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I surround my life with art, creativity and artistic people. I initially focused on oil painting, and that eventually evolved into a passion for photography, which in turn gave way to my interest in filmmaking. I love the challenge of learning something new in order to become better as a producer and a person. It’s very important to explore and understand every part of production. I plan to direct in the future and maybe try some acting. These areas offer much potential for self-discovery. I believe that enjoying what you do makes life a lot easier. It is important to believe in yourself, to have dreams. Find out what makes you happy and never give up on yourself. It’s important to listen to your inner voice. We all have one. I know you can do it.
Recently I created a talk show titled Guilty By My Own Desires, in order to have an open conversation with individuals working in the entertainment industry or related fields. I want to have deep discussions about their decisions and life lessons, and encourage them to share everything that they have encountered while pursuing their burning desires. I also work with start-up businesses and help with the creation of new brands and personal image development.
With my experience in the entertainment industry, I have been able to help actors, models, writers, film directors and producers. I do not have many years in the industry, but in a short period of time, I have managed to learn what being successful in Hollywood requires. I have excellent references from clients that have implemented my suggestions and made progress in their careers.
I would like everyone to know that we are launching our own streaming platform, Heart Of Hollywood Cinema ( www.heartofhollywoodcinema.com ), with a unique business model to benefit subscribers and content producers.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR VIEWERS
Heart Of Hollywood Cinema is designed to be user-friendly, with extraordinary resolution quality and blazing-fast speed. It provides varied content, with an emphasis on multicultural productions.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR CONTENT PRODUCERS
Independent producers, as well as studios, now have a new option for distributing movies, TV series and other types of content, including livestreams. Heart Of Hollywood Motion Pictures is currently in search of content to stream, and content creators and producers are encouraged to contact the company to learn about the business model and how they can receive revenue.
Heart Of Hollywood Cinema has a signature offering—Virtual Premieres and private screenings.
These are an exciting online version of in-person movie or TV show premieres. They might include a red carpet, and they are meant to recreate the experience of going to a theater to attend a very special screening. Tickets to Virtual Premieres are available for both subscribers and non-subscribers.
Heart Of Hollywood Cinema is a dream about to come true and I can’t wait for everyone to enjoy this new streaming platform.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Hahaha! I would take my friend to the Santa Monica Pier to eat. We might also share a bottle of Prosecco at the Georgian hotel restaurant. Since my brand is Heart Of Hollywood, I guess at some point I would take my friend to some of the most famous spots in that city. I love parties, events, and dancing, so we’d stop by the Academy LA. If time permits, I’d love to take my friend to a memorable place right on the Walk of Fame, where I had my first offices and Heart Of Hollywood MP started.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Sandy Rodriquez, communications expert and author of motivational book Choose To Prevail.
Scott Stoltz, film producer. Look for his documentary “Recording In Progress”.
Steve Jennings, motivational speaker, author, athlete, and the list of his occupations and activities could go on and on.
