Hollyweird StudiosMaceo Greenberg and Laura Picklesimer (Creators of Hollyweird Studios)

Maceo and Laura have ignored the advice from all of their writing mentors to never collaborate artistically with a significant other. Instead, they firmly believe that certain rules are meant to be broken, especially with their shared writing interests and styles. The couple’s first collaboration was the feature screenplay, RealiTV, a script that has since been optioned. Hollyweird Studios marks the pair’s first produced project together. The genesis for the web show stemmed from their experiences living in the epicenter of weirdom: Hollywood.

Maceo is an award-winning filmmaker who graduated magna cum laude from CSULB’s English/creative writing program and Film Production program. He has received numerous awards, including the Panavison New Filmmaker Award, Central Coast Filmmaker Award, and the CSULB avant-garde Filmmaker’s Grant.

Laura is a full-time writer with a background in English, creative writing and journalism. She graduated summa cum laude from UCLA, and her awards include the Shirle Dorothy Robbins Award for Fiction and the Jean C. Cook Scholarship for Women. Laura is currently at work writing her next feature screenplay, The Threshold.
