Wed. March 5, 2014 Hollywood Republicans Mixer w/Producer Bettina Viviano
Bettina Viviano has had a successful career in entertainment as a Producer and Literary Manager for over thirty years. She began her career at the prestigious William Morris Agency as an agent trainee, before moving on to Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, where she attained the position of Vice President of Production. At Amblin, Bettina worked on such movies as “Back to the Future 2 and 3,” “Cape Fear,” “Land Before Time,” “Schindler’s List,” “Always,” “Roger Rabbit” and “Indiana Jones 3” as a Production Executive on over 40 movies and two seasons of NBC series “Amazing Stories.”
After leaving Amblin, Bettina became a Literary Agent at BBMW, representing writers and directors. In 1990 she began her own production and management company, Viviano Entertainment, Inc. and since has sold pitches, scripts books, etc. for millions of dollars on behalf of her clients. As producer, Bettina has made a long list of movies including “Three to Tango,” “Mom’s Got a Date With a Vampire,” “Family Sins,” “Strange Hearts,” “Nightmare Man,” “Alibi,” and “Caught in the Act.” She currently has many high level studio and independent pictures in development including “Freedom House” (Warner Brothers) and Indie films “American Crawl” (writer/director Brad Novicoff), “Man, Interrupted” (writer/director Zack Adler) and “Nest of Lies” (director Mikael Solomon).
In 2008 formerly completely apolitical Bettina experienced a life changing event, when the Clinton Campaign asked her, along with Democrat writer/director Gigi Gaston, to make a documentary film about voter fraud in the 2008 Democratic Primary. Having witnessed irregularities, crimes and rampant voter fraud, Bettina then embarked on a whirlwind of political activism, dedicating her time to speaking out as a Hollywood Conservative. The film, “We Will Not Be Silenced”, ran on Fox and Friends as a story for 6 straight weeks, and has been shown all over the world.
Bettina recently served as Executive Producer on Sony Pictures film “Jack and Jill,” starring Adam Sandler, Katie Holmes and Al Pacino, the script for which she sold for $1 Million Dollars to Sony. She also just served as Executive Producer on independent film “American Romance”, starring DeVeigh Chase, Nolan Funk and John Savage, which is scheduled for release in 2014. And, Bettina is in pre-production on an historical drama feature film entitled “Degas” for Magnet Media, which will be directed by Menna Yapo.
