How to break into a small specific company?



Hello Veteran 25R Broadcaster. Living in L.A. hoping to work in Burbank.
My target company is only 250 people part and were relocated from NYC.
Now that they are in my city I have a strong draw to want to work there.

They are book publishing and IP marketing. My background is technical and communications.
I would not mind starting from bottom IF needed, considering i feel THIS is the path i need now.
How to achieve? Aside from getting a new B.S./B.A. for those jobs, or the fact I have reached 50.
In my favor i have a solid knowledge of their product and IPs, and have a love and passion for what they produce, my office skills, communicataion with people and leadership in smaller groups..

Feedback appreciated.
Thank you.
