Chris Fenwick is back to provide valuable insight into succeeding in this business as a professional creative. But there’s a twist at the end that ties this issue to the gender equality discussion.
On last week’s season 2 premiere of Radio Film School, 30+ year editing and producing veteran Chris Fenwick provided some great perspective. But during my conversation with him, we talked about a number of things. One of them was his comment made about the second installment of our Breaking the Glass docu-film series wherein animation editor Christine Haslett shared frustrations about not advancing as far as she would’ve liked in her field. Chris’ commentary on her situation is the impetus for today’s discussion.
After the credits, there’s a fun preview of our brand new podcast about HBO’s hit new series “Westworld.” I like to refer to it as “The Westworld podcast Samuel L. Jackson would love!” You can subscribe to the new show in iTunes. Find it online at daredreamer.fm/westworldpod.
