Jim Jermanok has spoken to dozens of audiences worldwide at colleges and universities, film festivals, theaters, and media/arts organizations on the 25 years of wisdom he has acquired on succeeding in the world of entertainment. For the first decade of his career, Jim was employed as an Agent at the premier entertainment agency, ICM (International Creative Management) where he represented Alan Arkin, John Guare, Helen Hayes, Arthur Miller, Shirley MacLaine, Dudley Moore, Henry Winkler and General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, among others. There, he was privy to understanding what tools and qualities actors, writers, directors, and producers used to succeed in the entertainment industry.  What they have in common in contrast to the majority of creative folks who fail to make a living in their chosen creative field.

Jim Jermanok took his clients’ advice and for the past 16 years has work as an award-winning writer, director and producer in independent film, theater, television and new media. In 2003, a full-length feature romantic comedy he wrote and produced, "PASSIONADA," was released by The Samuel Goldwyn Company domestically and by Columbia Tri-Star internationally in over 150 countries.  He receives high praise from all the prominent film critics, including "Two Thumbs Up!" from Ebert and Roper. In 2008, Jim produced "EM," an intense romantic drama by the gifted writer-director, Tony Barbieri ("The Magic of Marciano").  "EM" had it world premiere in June 2008 at the Seattle Intl. Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Film from among the more than 200 entries.  It had a worldwide release late last year by Vanguard Cinema and SnagFilms.  

Now Jim Jermanok wants to pass along this wisdom to others in a compelling way with his acclaimed and authentic workshop, BEYOND THE CRAFT: What You Need to Know to Make A Living Creatively. This workshop is intended to communicate exactly which qualities and tools successful creative professionals and students need to make a living creatively. It utilizes the distinct approach and philosophy Jim has cultivated over the years to make a living as a creative professional. It is also intended to help liberate creatives from solely depending on others, like agents, managers, casting directors, directors, and producers.
