Mark Schulman may not be a household name, but he is an entertainment strategist behind many Hollywood household names. As a Talent Manager with 3 Arts Entertainment, Schulman’s clients include Mario Lopez of Extra, Tyra Banks of America’s Next Top Model, Chris Harrison of The Bachelor, Padma Lakshmi of Top Chef, and Nancy O’Dell of Entertainment Tonight.
Full Sail was pleased to host Schulman on campus this week for a Q&A presentation with students. During his talk, Schulman described how he got his start in entertainment, working directly under TV executive and mentor Brandon Tartikoff. He also discussed his work as an executive producer/creator for shows like Spin City, Ink, Jersey Shore, Jackass, and Behind the Music – and most recently for the new NBC pilot Mr. Robinson.
As part of his visit to Full Sail, Schulman was given a tour of the university’s studios, film soundstages, and backlot.
“I was incredibly impressed with the abundance of resources available to the students in a time in the entertainment business where proactive people stand out,” says Schulman. “This is a facility that should allow them all the opportunity in the world to capitalize on that.”
