Listen: Dominic, Hollywood, One Minute discussed on First Class Fatherhood
"But you know, it's something that I've definitely letting them pick lead on. It's it's nothing. I would ever push anyone toward and to be honest. I don't really want. I mean, if I my preference would be then if they come to I'd like to come to later. I mean, they get child actor is a rough road, and it sets up a strange reality that is hard to simply hard to follow the rest of your life. You know, a lot of kids get work as actors when they're young because of the way they look or some sort of idiosyncratic quality about them, and then they become an adult and that thing goes away. And then now, what are you left with? It's like, you know, what what was this really about? Out. And also it takes. Every once in a while, you see a kid actor, you know, come through, and and they're great degrades adults and the other side, but we all know the stories, it's it's tough, man. So I prefer not to go down that road. If I if I yeah. And the game has changed a lot Dominic as far as the ability to just get noticed or discovered. I mean years ago you had to know somebody to get any chance for some exposure. But now with social media and all this stuff. Everybody has the opportunity to promote themselves of put it out there where they can be discovered and many people have had some success with this, especially with you to, you know, people do get some solid results from it through without a doubt. I mean know, the focus there is a little different from what I what I think of is the traditional trajectory, obviously, an actor. You know for me, it was always about storytelling. And and be honest about language about words. You know, you know, you to is equal is as you say, I mean, all bets are off man who. Who's to say what's going to happen with any of that? Yeah. That's one thing. I'm curious to ask you about Dominic because you are in the industry every everything seems to be reduced in size like our writing reduced text messages or tweets or the character. Limit our videos now short until like one minute bursts or one minute clips, do you see the length of Hollywood films being affected as far as the two and a half three and a half hour movies continuing or will Hollywood start reducing the running time of the movies, especially the ones that are aimed at the younger generation. I like definitely the car and to be honest. They don't think it's a good thing. I mean are tension spans have definitely as far as I could tell decreased and we want instant gratification.."
