What began as a humorous analysis of just behind the scenes TV and film production, has now grown into an observation of The Hero’s Journey taken by professionals working in all aspects of Hollywood. The focus is on obstacles, side-hustles, approach, process, optimization and seeking peak performance both on set and off. This podcast is about learning to “Produce Yourself” in many areas of life, by hearing from people who have fought to get where they are in movies and television.... Show More

Don't let editing paralyze you from getting all of your cluttered and disorganized thoughts out. That process of writing a...

If someone wants to go after them, so be it (I have their personal address. I'd sell it to you, but it's not cheap!...
