A letter to a young woman who (justifiably) wants to give up on a career in entertainment this week: please don’t.
Are you sick of me talking about my short film yet? Or are you like WHERRRRRRE IS THE TRAILER? well, it’s your lucky day!
Given the longer format of my column, I don’t often get a chance to answer the smaller questions sent my way, but this conversation with my old friend (and client!) Josh Ruben on his Mindhouse podcast covers a lot of ground: The Marvelous Jack Black, why shooting tape before a pitch is always best, what question I get most often, what bugs me the most about the industry, and what I miss about being an agent (my expense account). Hope you enjoy.
