“(Great) material is your currency.” -Brian Grazer
What’s the first thing most actors do once they gain some clout in the industry?
They form a production company.
So they can use that clout to find great material and manifest it for themselves and others. Because they know that’s the game. It’s the whole enchilada. Finding great material and talented people to execute it, is everything.
But you don’t need to wait until you become a famous Hollywood actor to form your production company. You can do it right now. Start one! All you need is a burning desire to consistently produce material that you either source or write yourself. Or both.
And do it with excellence and generosity at all times.
