Patriots punter Zoltan Mesko was one of 22 current and former NFL players who took part in the second annual NFL Pro Hollywood Boot Camp at Universal Studios in Universal City, California March 11-15.
The program was directed by NFL Player Engagement and Film Life Inc., the New York-based film production company, and covered a wide range of topics in the movie industry.
According to the NFL’s press release about the unique opportunity for players, the four-day boot camp offered a comprehensive overview of creative disciplines in the film industry including screen writing, directing, producing and film financing. Session leaders included Legendary Pictures partner/producer and member of the Pittsburgh Steelers ownership group Thomas Tull (The Dark Knight, Inception, We are Marshall), director/producer Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights), and writer/actor/director Robert Townsend (The Five Heartbeats, Hollywood Shuffle).
Based on the photos of Mesko, who always seem to find something unique and fun to do during the offseason, it looks like the punter had a pretty good time dabbling in the Hollywood life!
