      The Value of Mentors

      December 6, 2016, 10:32 am
      Some of us make the mistake of thinking we can just ‘go it alone’ and not need guidance from others. This episode we break down the importance of mentors, but also how to find them. In addition, going beyond this and starting to target mentors in many parts of our life and career, building a braintrust to help as stay motivated, and give key advice, as well as help us see when we’re F!@#’ing up and maybe don’t even know it...

      In 24 hours, I won't be the Animation Guild's Business Representative anymore. I've done the job for twenty-seven years, but there comes a time to hang the biz rep thing up. To go off fishing. To take a breather.

      Walter Murch and The Rule of Six – Go Into The S

      December 5, 2016, 5:35 pm
      Over the years, I have blogged several times about Walter Murch (see links below) whose work as a sound designer and film editor is notable in such movies as Julia, Apocalypse Now, Ghost, The English Patient, and The Talented Mr. Ripley. In my view, Murch has written one of the best screenwriting books — “The Blink of an Eye” — only it’s not about screenwriting, but rather film editing. However since screenwriting is so much about scene construction, perspective, and transitions between scenes, I find Murch’s insights profoundly beneficial to our craft.
