Meet Steve DeVore of Saturday Entertainment in Hermosa Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Steve DeVore.

Steve, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born and raised in small town (Muscatine) Iowa. After finishing film school, I knew one person in LA who happened to be a production assistant on commercials. After working my way up the ranks from a PA to a Line Producer I ventured into opening up 2 of my own production companies. 8th St Productions is my commercial production company and Saturday Entertainment is my development / production company that concentrates on Film and TV projects. In Feb 2018, we launched our film “Survivors Guide to Prison” internationally.

On a day to day basis I work on commercials as well as a film or TV project in an Executive Producer or Line Producer role.

I currently reside in Hermosa Beach, CA with my fiancé, daughter and son.

Has it been a smooth road?
Smooth is an interesting way to describe it. Absolutely not smooth, but it should not be either.

Of course there were some obstacles from surviving the high rent on the beach as a PA to finding work as I have always worked freelance. Working freelance can be interesting as it is like making new friends on a job by job basis and showing them your worth. I also think it shows you how hard you need to work to become successful and that goes for any industry.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Saturday Entertainment – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Saturday Entertainment is founded by an Oscar Nominated Director / Editor and an Emmy award winning producer. We are constantly developing Film and TV concepts while in production on a few.

I would have to say my most proud moment is the film “Survivors Guide to Prison” Not only is it a great film, it is a very important message / movement.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I absolutely love Hermosa Beach, from the clean beaches to the people to the location.
