“I think the best thing about Hollywood is that no one has the same path, and my path started in sports.”
“I wanted to learn filmmaking inside out, so I would be the one that would make the budget, and do the plan, and figure out how to make the movie from start to finish.”
“This is producing. Always have a back up plan.”
“It’s relationships you make ten years ago, and something comes back around that makes sense, and you know you can partner with your other buddy over here. That’s producing. It’s a war of attrition.”
“When you’re younger in your career you have to do whatever your opportunity is and then do it well. And then you can start to choose, and then people start to notice what you do well, and then you can start to choose what kind of films and projects and people you want to be involved with.”
I enjoyed this episode so much. I want to put in a request for Claire Coffee to be a guest. She is so down to earth and funny — I would love to hear more of her acting stories!
