Entertainment Business

Dear Future Students & Graduates of the Entertainment Business Program,

My name is Hal Lieberman and, as the the former President of Production for Universal Pictures, it is with great pride and expectation that I am now overseeing the Entertainment Business Program at The Los Angeles Film School. During my almost twenty years with Universal, I developed, supervised and helped produce such notable films as: Apollo 13, The Nutty Professor, Liar Liar, Fried Green Tomatoes, Death Becomes Her, Reality Bites, Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore, among others.  Currently, as an active producer, the films I've produced include: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, The Bridge to Terabithia, House at the End of the Street, U-571, The Jackal, Around the World in Eight Days, Vacancy, and Vacancy 2.  All of these films have accumulated a combined success of ten Oscar® wins and seventeen Oscar® nominations and they represent only part of the journey. Moving forward, my enthusiasm bringing experience and excitement to the students of the Entertainment Business program is stronger than ever, and I anticipate great success from our students as we build out the program in Entertainment Business.
