Hollywood Ending

This is Lance Pototschnik at his wittiest, darkest, and funniest.

The 2008 recession hits. The US economy goes belly-up and sentences a young generation to wayward lives. With nothing to lose, Lance Pototschnik and his best friend, Jackson Greenly, decide to go for their artist dreams. Lance begins a grassroots initiative to sell an original screenplay to Hollywood. He lives out of a rental car and travels the country filming strangers’ street auditions, hoping to generate enough interest on social media to dragoon a production deal. Jackson goes to art school, where he is inspired to make the perfect painting: one with the power to shoot a person dead.

About Lance Pototschnik

On the back of his incisive humor and formidable observation skills, Lance Pototschnik has quickly ridden to the top of the mountain of self-published authors.

His latest book, Hollywood Ending, reveals Pototschnik as a unique talent, a writer with the rare power to make one laugh to and through the brink of undignified, maniacal, public cackling and a master memoirist who achieves poignancy in his writing by couching anguish inside of gut-busting humor.


Before Hollywood Ending, there was a Hollywood beginning. This is the original promotional video compiled during the casting journey.
