    Nothing remarkable happened next, and I learned a valuable lesson that only dawned on me years later. Every week, we would meet with an executive from Blumhouse and have lunch together.

  • So, here I was, in contact with someone that could possibly help me get into a company that I desperately thought was supposed to be my path. I had doubt about it. I was supposed to be at Blumhouse. I mean, why else would some random person, who I have never met before, overhear my…

  • It was my last school year of college, and I still needed to land an internship, but I was having no luck. I can’t express to you guys enough how much it sucks to send applications, and emails, make cold calls, and reach out to every contact I had, and still nothing. It mainly was…

  • If you haven’t noticed, my undergraduate year was full of conversations with industry folks. Advice was given left and right, and I was listening to stories about how others made it in the film industry.
