Why am I embarking on this endeavor of The Hollywoodland Podcast?
The First Time
The first time I was on a real motion picture set was one of the most incredible days of my life. No, it was not about the stars although there were plenty.
Johnny Depp, Martin Landau, Sara Jessica Parker, Bill Murray, Patricia Arquette, along with many other talented actors.
It was about the work. The magic of the creative process. It was about so many, many people working hard, coming together to create something special.
It was about putting all that creative energy together to tell a story. Sometimes these stories make us laff, and sometimes they make us cry. But when it is done well, it will always move us.
It is this love of the creative process that has changed my life. It is this love of that creative process that has moved me to create this podcast.
I have been an entrepreneur my entire life. Sometimes in the creative fields producing radio and TV commercials, sometimes not in the catering and real estate business.
One thing is for sure. If you have it in you, there is nothing that gives you greater satisfaction than being part of a team that creates. That makes something that lives forever.
That can take the words on a page and bring them to life in a way that brings entertainment to others.
With all the bad that you can hear about “Hollywood”, I believe it is an important industry that is filled with so many great people that do it for the love of the work. The work of creating.
For those that also love the creative art of film and television, join the conversation.
