Since the reckoning of Hollywood figures like Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood has taken a dark path when it comes to upholding industry value and morale. But, there are some, like Andrea Iervolino, who have taken a stand against abhorrent behaviors like cyberbullying and online trolling.
Who Is Hollywood Film Producer, Andrea Iervolino?
At 29 years old, Hollywood Italian Film Producer, Andrea Iervolino, has been recognized as one of the leading film producers across the world, as well as one of the “Best Italian Businessman of the world.” Iervolino is on a strong upward roll, making sure that he combats anything that stands in his path. He and Monika Barcardi’s company, AMBI Group, has acquired the rights to over 400 features, including features like Cruel Intentions, Donnie Darko, End of Watch, Ides of March, and Momento.
Iervolino Joins The Fight To Save Hollywood
Hollywood is currently facing a shroud of darkness when it comes to ensuring good digital citizenship and good morale. It takes those willing to stand up against this darkness to once again bring light into the entertainment space. I asked Iervolino to join my #CYBERBYTE challenge and to share a tip or two of his when faced with such obstacles.
“When I was growing up, I had serious issues with stuttering,” Iervolino told me. “Due to this challenge, many of the kids around me, judged me and kept me out of games. They even spit on me and teased me; I was the outcast of the group. My advice, is to fight and go ahead, because one day, you’ll have your revenge, just like me.”
Iervolino graciously accepted the challenge and recorded his message in hopes we can continue fighting the good fight.
