This advice column isn’t for the lovelorn but rather those with a love for the art and commerce of advertising and entertainment--people looking to realize their career goals who are planning accordingly. But how to best plan in order to gain an industry foothold can prove a major challenge.
In that vein--and in the spirit of SHOOT’s 14th annual New Directors Showcase event set for Thursday evening, May 26, at the DGA Theatre in NYC--we invited agency heads of production/executive producers and production company execs to share their advice with aspiring directors and producers, posing the following two basic questions:
1. What advice do you have for new directors?
2. What advice can you offer to up-and-coming producers?
