In the past two weeks, I’ve received news from two colleagues on how their association with my work at /Film has helped to provide them some valuable professional connections:
- My friend Dan Trachtenberg is now represented by the super-prestigious Great Guns talent agency in the UK. The Great Guns rep first heard of Dan on our “Top Soundtracks of 2010” podcast, in which Dan casually mentioned that he’s a commercial director. This off-handed remark led to a contract being signed between the two of them. Congratulations, Dan!
- A while ago, I interviewed Gen Ip, the creator of the amazing Filmography 2010 video. Last week, I received an e-mail from a major trailer-editing company in LA, which actually cut several of the trailers in the video! The representative was looking to hire and asked me if I could connect him with Gen Ip. After checking with Gen, I e-introduced the two of them this morning. I assume great things will come of it.
I’m grateful that the platforms I’ve worked in can provide people with new and exciting opportunities. It’s a testament to the caliber of our listenership and readership that these opportunities exist. It’s also a sign of the sheer talent and greatness of the people willing to associate themselves with /Film and the /Filmcast.
So there you have it folks! Agreeing to talk with me will clearly improve your professional life in ways you can only dream of. Just know that my door is always open. Because seriously, it’s so lonely over here…
