I was invited to be the inaugural guest for the Black TV & Film Collective’s first Lunch and Learn, Facebook Live event. The conversation centered around television directing and the path toward securing episodic assignments.
Take a listen to hear about my experience in the directing programs of Sony, HBO, NBC, and Disney/ABC as well as my recent directing experience on HBO’S Insecure, PLUS what’s on the slate for Fall 2017!
[NOTE: The interview begins around :45]
Plenty of great lines in here, Pete. You’ve always kept it real and spread the knowledge. So it’s awesome that you received gems and still pass them along throughout this interview. gems @ 8:00, Debbie Allen, the lack of early representation, and raising over half a mil for Premium. Even the idea of staying up late for next day submissions is very true. Keep pushin’. That grind is real.
Great answer about an investor writing $20k to $25k and not getting money back.
