California natives Ramses Barden and Justin Tryon have been selected to attend the second annual “NFL Pro Hollywood Boot Camp” at Universal Studios this month in Los Angeles.
The wide receiver and cornerback will join 20 other current and former NFL players for a four-day boot camp offering a comprehensive overview of creative disciplines in the film industry, including screen writing, directing, producing and film financing.
“We are excited to continue providing opportunities for active and former players to explore and develop valuable professional contacts in a wide range of career fields,” said Troy Vincent, senior vice president of NFL Player Engagement.
“We are excited to work with the NFL on the second Pro Hollywood Boot Camp, which exposes players to life beyond the field, “said Jeff Friday, CEO of Film Life Inc., which created the Pro Hollywood initiative. “Pro Hollywood was designed to provide an in-depth overview of the film business as well as a mentorship program for those who come out of it serious about building a career in film.”
The program, which runs from March 11-15, is being directed by NFL Player Engagement and the New York-based production company Film Life Inc., and participants will have the opportunity to shoot and edit a short film at Universal Studios. NFL Player Engagement now offers current and former players 10 training programs for post-NFL careers, including the NFL Business of Music Boot Camp, which Giants defensive tackle Marvin Austin attended last year.
