WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE THE STAR OF YOUR LIFE?
PIONEERING FILM DIRECTOR ANITA ROSENBERG INVITES HER MOVIE INDUSTRY FRIENDS —writers, directors, producers, cinematographers, production designers, editors, and actors —the people who actually make the movies! —to explore what it takes to succeed in a famously challenging and competitive industry. These intimate conversations are loaded with gems of lessons learned, sage advice, and motivating inspiration.
The captivating cast of advisors includes movie star Virginia Madsen advocating a positive mindset; Hip-Hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy revealing how great relationships can bring great fortune; and "Comic Book King" Michael Uslan confessing why content really is king (hint: acquiring Batman rights while in his twenties set up his entire career).
