"Also, close personal friend of Bon Jovi, you were in his music videos, he was in young guns, et cetera that's right. How did that happen?

And me too, from USC theater. She's the she was friends with John and Richie sambora, and she introduced John and I and John says, hey man, you know, I love young guns one. Can I be involved with youngsters? I said, you know, once you come out to New Mexico and we'll throw in cameo, he shows up in the middle of shooting and he says, hey, I wrote a song. I'd love to play it for you. And I said, oh my God, whatever. Sure. Yeah. How good could it be? Can I play it for you now? And he had it written on a piece of lined. Paper and he's sat down and played in the car and it was blazing glory. Wow. And I had the day off. And I said, get in the car. We drove to set.

There's Things That We Have to Be Thankful For...
"There's things that we have to be thankful for. Do not forget to count your blessings. Don't let stress in the perception of depression to make you forget all of the wonderful things that God has done in your life, all of your great accomplishments, you've got to look at the good with the bad. But be thankful. This is your opportunity to be thankful. And I just want to give some context to Thanksgiving. I know a lot of people may not understand the true history of it. People may only think that Thanksgiving is about neck bones, collard greens, chitlins, at least that's what I remember Thanksgiving to be. However, my wife refused to cook me chitlins. But I understand they smell like crap. So she don't want to cook them. But anybody out there that know how good chitlins is when you put some hot sauce on it, especially y'all people from the south, you know what I'm talking about. I'll miss those chipmunk. But let me just read this to you. And I think this is very well laid out. My producer sent it to me and I think that it was pretty good. It says, let us let all give thanks to what we are thankful for. In autumn of 1621, Plymouth colony governor William Bradford urged his brethren to observe a Thanksgiving Day observations observance, I'm sorry, for God's harvest, blessings with pilgrims and Native Americans who helped him. In 1777, after the Revolutionary War, victory over the British at the Sarah Saratoga, the second Continental Congress declared that there should be a day of Thanksgiving.
Sebastian and Jennifer Discuss Trump's Commitment to America
"An aspect of support for president Trump. And I don't get mushy here because I'll ruin my rep. But it's not just about the policies and making a rational political decision. My God, his commitment to this nation, and he said it yesterday, he said, I was living a very happy life before I was president. I don't need to do this again. The only reason because he's losing money, he's being attacked constantly, he's paying millions in legal fees because the DoJ is coming after him, the southern district of New York. Jen, I want to support a man who's doing this because he loves America. Why is that wrong? Yeah, I think that people get it really wrong with him. And I have never, I mean, I've had dinner in the same room with president Trump, Ben de Mar-a-Lago, never met him and spent a lot of time with him. But I'm telling you that the gut instinct that I have with him is that he doesn't need to do this. I think that, yes, he has a big ego like everyone else in politics and everybody else that runs big businesses. But I don't think he's running, and I don't think he ran before to feed that. What I think is that he really believes that this country can be great. He sees the potential in America. He loves the country, and he knows that he can lead us in the right direction, and I really believe that he is running for all the right reasons. This is not for a book deal. This is not to become a television producer like the obamas. This is because he really believes that he can make a difference. And I'm all on board. And as far as Ron DeSantis goes and I know we're going to get to this, I really think so much of what's been going on is a construct of the mainstream media and these never trumpers who would like nothing more than to blow Trump out of the water because they're afraid of the backbone that he has.
April 2020: Mark Levin Speaking About Government Shutdowns
"But in the meantime I want you to remember something Some of my back manager of Friends started to talk about this the other day Mark my words that's what's gonna happen As rush said the echo chamber Mister producer dug a little bit I want you to listen to what I said April 23 2020 April 23 2020 by my calculation that's about a year and a half ago Cut one go When their government shutdowns you would think the whole world's coming to an end There are 2 million civilian federal employees 26 million people the overwhelming majority of whom are in the private sector have been laid off in the last 30 days 26 million And they and these businesses that have shut down and we don't even know how many they don't get the attention Not even one tenth of 1% of the attention that people do when there's a government shutdown which is always temporary and people are made whole for the most part You can't fire a federal employee Any more than you can put it would be murder of 20 30 40 50 trainees for the Los Angeles sheriff's department in prison

Dave Rubin: Recalling an Iconic Moment With Larry Elder
"I mean what happened one day where you're like okay and I know me and you have some different social abuse and that stuff But that's the great part about it being sane people Like we can actually talk things out But when did you say to yourself like okay this modern liberal movement is just bananas Well it's interesting because people say liberal and this is what my first book was about but you know the progressives are illiberal liberalism means basically you're open minded you're willing to find where there is more equality and more freedom The progressives have changed equality obviously to equity and they want to rejigger society in their bizarre racist sex focused identity focused worldview For me there were a couple things that happened the most famous one that you've probably seen It's been seen probably a 100 million times on YouTube I had Larry elder on my show legendary radio host Larry elder Epic We had never met before We sat down I said something about systemic racism and he basically beat me senseless And I don't know how many people can say this Dan but I honestly think I had my best and worst career moment at the exact same time because it was my worst for obvious reasons I said something not ready to battle it out I said systemic racism He beats me senseless and I had nothing to fall back on but it was my best moment because it was not live like we are right now was to tape We're going to air it the next day My producers all said we're going to cut that And I said no we have to leave it Knowing that I was going to take a hit on that I mean that Well you know what It really is It takes a lot of courage It's a fine line between bravery and sort of stupidity or naivete or something But it worked It worked

Charlie and Producer Andrew Talk Voter Disenfranchisement
"So Andrew, I tweeted and I am now of the opinion that looked the rules of the rules and if you're able to ballot harvest, then we need to do this. I mean, look, we are not going to just accept this below average depressing result. First of all, I think Carrie Lake needs to fight this thing to the bitter end legally. It is so wrong what happened in Maricopa County and we support her completely and totally in this. And it's been very interesting Andrew. The media has actually been very quiet in kind of how they've been talking about this. And I'm sure that's going to change. But I think even deep down the media knows that there was a legitimate voter disenfranchisement and suppression that happened in Maricopa County. One in 5 voting centers went down on election day. Listen, I, you know, I'm usually pretty skeptical about the legal challenges. I think I've been a little bit jaded after 2020 and everything that we went through in that cycle. I think there's a really compelling case to be made in Maricopa. And I think, you know, again, no hopium here, it's an uphill battle any time you say, hey, let's run it back. Let's do this election again. I think there's a really, really compelling argument just given the scale given the number of testimonials. I mean, we have that clip that we could play for the audience here. I mean, it's amazing. And if you guys have that story, go to defend democracy AZ dot com that's defend democracy AZ dot com. Your stories are going to be taken down for possible affidavits and a legal battle that it's going to play out in Arizona. People are asking us how they can support the potential legal bills that are going to come with this legal challenge in Arizona. Just go to Carrie Lake's campaign. I know they're getting that ready right now. But yeah, I mean, it's a really compelling case, Charlie. When you have 70 voting polling places that are not able to tabulate ballots on day of, that's going to disenfranchise overwhelming majority conservative voters that are going to go Carrie Lake and Abe holiday. Now, Carrie Lake still down in the thousands, but Abe's down to like 500 votes right now as of as of right now as we're doing this. So you can't tell me hundred votes. Yeah, you can't tell me that we can't find 500 people that got disenfranchised that day and that would have made a holiday the next attorney general of Arizona.
Team Gallagher Predicts Pres. Trump's Big Announcement
"Derek klingel, who's been how long have you been producing the show now? How long has it been, Derek? It's been a little over two years, April of 2020 was when I started officially. And now's when you're supposed to say it's the happiest two years of your life. And you've got the, you got the ulcers to prove it. You're doing a great job. You're a terrific producer and we poached you from the Joe Piscopo show. You were interning and helping out in New York with piscopo. You're on Long Island. Working remotely and I want to you're a solid Trump supporter. Tonight, 9 o'clock is the big announcement Eastern Time. What does Derek klingel producer of the Mike Gallagher show think about president Trump's expected announcement? I think that this announcement is probably going to be him running for 2024. And it's going to force a lot of soul searching within the Republican Party. And I think that ultimately the America first policies and agenda is going to win over a big chunk of America because not only the enthusiasm that a lot of people have for that. But like you say, the record of accomplishments that Donald Trump has already achieved. Some of which were border security, tax cuts for the middle class, record low unemployment for every demographic of Americans, even the peace deals we saw under Trump. So if he does announce, I would be happy to support him, but I also agree with you and Mark Davis that we should let the game come to us and sort of see what happens and be humble about it.

"producer" Discussed on The Dentalpreneur Podcast with Dr. Mark Costes
"So you would say, okay, at 30 days, we would expect you to be able to fabricate a provisional for an anterior or posterior tooth in no longer than 15 minutes. That would be one of the things that they check off at the 30 day check off. And we want you to be able to do a scan and an FMX in a certain amount of time. So they would check, check, check, check, check, and then they would go from, you know, their initial pay of $17 an hour. At that 30 day Mark, they hit all of their benchmarks, and they would get the $18 an hour. And then for 30 to 60 days, they would have another level of things that we would hold them accountable to be able to perform. They would check those off, and then they would elevate another dollar. And then they would get accomplished all of the things that we wanted them to accomplish in a 90 day period of this onboarding as a brand new general assistant within our practice, then they would get up to their desired salary range. Celery raped rather, at that 90 day benchmark. Now, Jake, I'm going to let you take it over and the tier is kind of related to that. The tier structure is related to that. And how do we implement that into practices when people are asking for a raise? Yeah, no, that was the origin. It actually, the first official tier structure that we're alluding to now came from, it was actually a coaching call with Ahmet rajani. He was the low supply guy, like 3.2% for the longest time. Anyway. We couldn't figure out how his supplies were so low, but he's just very efficient that way. Sophisticated owner, you mentioned that earlier, he's a very sophisticated business owner. But anyway, so this stemmed from because he was struggling with this very thing. And so what he did was he first established a tier model where, regardless of who's coming in the practice and what's going on currently, what would be an ideal tier one assistant, what job descriptions, what skill sets accountabilities could they possess? What would tier two look like tier three tier four, right? And obviously you appropriate what base in your region, hourly rate. I like ranges tier one, a little bit of a range that way there's a little bit of runway, a little bit of give within that tier, in case they have 80% checked off. There's a little bit of Ascension within that tier itself. But anyway, it started with that. And then it just kind of metastasized. And some are in the best way. And the best way. Like a lot of things do in the mastermind group. You start with a good idea and these brilliant people turn them into these super sophisticated systems that they integrate into their offices and they share with everybody. It's awesome. And so now you have this tier model where if you bring in a new hire, you can place them immediately based on what their skill sets are in this tiered model. So if they're already at a tier two, boy, you can first 30 days, 60 days, make sure they're a good culture fit, but after 90 days, you can play some right in that tier because they've already shown they can hit those skill sets. And not to interrupt Jake, but a little protein is to make sure that the highest tier is lending to an increase in production significantly. So you could justify a higher value to them, right? So what is that? Then you have to kind of get creative about how can you turn non producers into producers. The highest year people are producers, even if they're traditionally non producers. Totally, and a lot of times that tier that last tier, if you're a specialty practice, if you have like Invisalign or that's going to be part of the full at that tier. So yeah, man, really good point. But yeah, so back to the tears here, where are we going with that? Oh, as you onboard, you can place them, but also new people, you give them a blueprint of like, hey, you're kind of into your one right now, but guess what? If you want to get to tier four, here it is. And we're going to be here for you to training accountability. If you want to go to courses, what have you and that itself, you mentioned earlier people aren't looking for monetary reward, which obviously there's some monetary tight of this. But people loved another providing that value and that you actually care about their employment there. This is an immediate way to show that. Yeah, it's so true. It's funny because we have integrated that into a lot of the DSI practices and a perfect example is now in Arizona. There's expanded functions now. So our girls are like, oh my gosh, you know, I feel like I had capped out with what I was able to do. Now they are legitimate producers. So they all raise their hand and said, hey, you know, can I go and take this expanded functions course? So now they're actually doing our fillings. And can I go to this coronal polishing course? Now they're doing coronal polishing stuff. And yeah, that's a perfect example. That's like a top tier person that's actually lending to production in your dental office. Colorado surgical institute that we run with doctor doctor brisky and doctor dune. We have people flying in with their chair side assistance that are green to surgical assisting.

"What is up? My Friends, I have a great friend on with me today. It's been a hot minute as the youngsters say, Jay Conway. You are a youngster. But Jake, it's been a hot minute since you've been on the podcast. How are you doing, man? Quite a hot minute. It's been a scalding minute. Good, man. 30 seconds to this. Video, usually I'm just behind. I can hide behind my phone. Yeah, yeah, so we are on a new platform called riverside. I'm in a brand new office, so forgive the echoey nature of my voice right now. I have gotten not gotten the noise and echo dampening situation happening in my new office yet, but as soon as I do, that will improve. But for now, I am just selling into my new digs, Jake, Conway. We moved next door to the big mansion on the corner of union and Marina here in preski Arizona. This building was built in 1894 and it's pretty awesome. I'm stoked to be here. Isn't that when that's when Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue, right? You got it. Nailed it. Nailed it. You must have been, you must have been a history major. Forget about your history major. I just remember numbers, you know? 1894 Columbus sailed the ocean blue, rolls off the tongue, rhymes and everything. What's up, dude, how you doing? Living there in Scottsdale and junk. Man, it's good. It's beautiful down here. 74 today. I get kind of isolated, you know? I miss you guys, of course. I gotta make it up there more often, but yeah, man, things are good, just taking phone calls, grasping kind of getting a grasp of what's going on out there, big picture, big data stuff that the trends in the business right now and that's kind of what I wanted to talk about today, Jake. For those of you guys that don't know who Jay Conway is, he is the financial analyst here at the dental success institute. Jake has been with DSI since we came up with this whole idea of coaching dentists over a decade ago. You've been to every single summit. You've been to pretty much every mastermind meeting. You've met every single member that's come through the doors of DSI. So you have an intimate knowledge of what's happening out there in the practice world. And I would love to hear, you know, given the fact that they have an officially announced it yet, but we are in a recession right now. What are you seeing as common themes amongst dental practice owners that you are connected with and that you speak to on a daily basis? Well, I think there's two sides to that. It's what they're doing and what the practice is doing because a lot of there's a lot of information out there all the time, right? So I see a lot of doctors trying to get real, real cute. Should I should I make this move? Should I look at my cash? Should I keep my cash? So they try to get a little too cute with things what I'm seeing. Overthinking things kind of sometimes. Yeah, or yeah, and then or they just have paralysis by analysis where they don't make they don't make any moves because they're just stuck thinking about all the different what ifs with things out of their control, right? Sure. But on the practice side, the actual things that are happening that are not hypothetical or based on anything outside of their control, I mean, it's still a pent up demand for recall for patients. We're seeing some cancellations, but I think that that's just September. I still think there's some weird things happening with the recall cycle being broken back. Even though it's in November. Yeah. No. In September, October is bleed over. Okay, yeah.

Do Parents Know What Is Happening in Their Childrens' Schools?
"School board candidates who pushed parental rights, only one third of them, according to this, if this is accurate, one. So my producer believes that the reason is they don't know what's really happening in the schools. The teachers unions just. Bombard them with propaganda and they believe it. I don't know the I don't know why. If you don't know what they're doing to your children at school, you're an incompetent parent. I'm not even apologizing for insulting you. You're an incompetent parent. If you do not know the damage that most schools are doing to your children. If you're okay with it, or you don't think it's damaged, I have no argument. If you think your child should learn about straight and gay and binary and non binary at the age of 6 and should go to drag queen story hours at the age of 5, then I don't have an argument with you.

"Office to 80% because our culture is weak right now. It doesn't have to be financial, but I'm just using that as an example. So we review the wigs. That's the next part of the agenda. So far, we're 36 seconds into the meeting. Next, we have lag measures. Lag measures are where you are. So think about lead measures as where we want to be. How are we going to contribute to the overall goals of the office? That is we're leading towards the goal. The lag measure is something that's already happened before. All of Jake's reports, the CPA reports. Overhead percentage. What we produced last month, what we produced yesterday. All those are lag measures. You can't manage a dental practice by lag measures alone. It's helpful to get those monthly P and ls from the CPA. Give them to Jake, turn them into a more digestible format. That's helpful. But if you are running and managing a practice based on lag measures alone, it's like trying to manage a practice by looking into the rearview mirror. You have to have lag measures, yes, for a point of reference, and a baseline. We're big on baselines here. But you also have to have a lead measure. Something that you're striving for. That is what's actually going to direct your course. As you get from face to face to face from belt to belt to belt until you achieve your overall goal for the year. Next, we have the previous week's lead measures, and then we have the current week's lead measures. And that's the entire agenda for the entire meeting. So the meeting looks like this. Hey, we want to recognize Suzy. You win the Wonder Woman award. You had a great week for the following reasons. Hey, Jimmy, our new hygienist. You win the rhino award this week because you handled this particular challenge this way, great job, high 5. There we go. Next, hey, everybody knows this, but we're going to mention it every single time. Our wigs for this practice are 20% growth, 15% decrease in overhead and 240 new patients. Okay, now we're one minute into the meeting. Lag measures, here's how we're doing. We had a goal set for a $140,000 per month. We are on the 15th of the month. We are only at, I don't know, $60,000, or $20,000 off, we need to find $20,000 in addition to our scheduled daily goal, and we need to schedule that over the next, I don't know, 15 days, whatever that happens to be. So that's where we are as far as lag measures. Lead measures, hygiene. Susie, get up and let everybody know what your lead measures were for last week. Sure, last week, my lead measures in the hygiene department were to present fluoride to a 100% of my patients and to get an 80% closure rate. What actually happened was I presented it to a 100% of my patients. And I got a 65% closure rate. So my lead measure for next week is going to be to try to get that extra 15%. The reason why I think that I didn't accomplish my goal was this. That's it. Every single person on your team during this growth meeting goes through stands up and says, this is what I committed to. I either met it or didn't. Here's what I commit to next week. Simple as that. The meeting is over. Under an hour, depending on the size of your practice, that does not leave room for discussing issues. That does not leave room for this to degrade into a bitch fest. It is reporting what we commit to this week and what we committed to last week and reviewing what our overall goals are. If you guys, whether or not you join the mastermind, if you guys commit to a weekly growth meeting, it is one of the things that will lead you to exponential growth and order and will decrease drama significantly within your practice. Okay? Weekly growth meeting. Quarterly calibration meeting. I use this word calibration all the time. If you guys listen to the podcast, you guys hear me talk about calibration all the time. So calibration amongst practices is very, very important, right? I have 7 dental practices last 2018. We had ten. Calibration amongst practices is very, very important. We talked about DSOs and centralizing. Centralizing certain systems. Some people like call centers. Some people like centralized billing departments. We have that. That's calibration to a certain level. On a deeper level, calibration is far as vocabulary is very, very important as well. Calibrating vocabulary. We explain a crown prep and the reason for one exactly the same. The sterile tech can explain why this particular tooth with this large amalgam needs a crown, as well as the doctor can. And in the same language, as the hygienist, as the front office, as the back office, everybody has the same language. Everybody knows why periodontal disease is bad. Systemically, and for the long time, the long-term retention of the teeth. They know how to explain the progression of periodontal disease. They know how to explain the progression of decay. They know how to explain osteo integration of an implant. That sort of thing is really, really important because if somebody, the back office person, is explaining the reason why an implant is better than a bridge, differently than the hygienist, who is explaining it slightly differently than the doctor, who's explaining it completely differently than the sterile tech and totally differently than the other offices. You're going to lose trust. Consistency and calibration is very, very important. Okay? If you're not a multiple practice operation, you still have to have calibration within your particular office. Once you have calibration within that office, you have to extend that out to a multiple practice group. Calibration is really, really important. So we have these quarterly calibration meetings that are a little bit longer than the weekly growth meetings because we are calibrating exactly how we bring a patient back from the reception area to the back office. Exactly how we answer the telephone. Exactly how we explain crown preps and the progression of carries. And we actually role play it and say it out loud, even though everybody hates role playing, we take the time, we're disciplined, and we do it every single quarter. We get calibrated, okay?

"Costas. Hope you guys are doing great out there today. All right, the title of this podcast is non producers to producers. And in this particular episode, we're going to talk about how to have an awesome meeting. We talk about wig meetings from the four disciplines of execution. We call them weekly growth meetings. They call them Whig meetings. While the important goal meetings in the four disciplines of execution by Sean cubby, how each person in each department can contribute to the overall goals of the operation, lead versus lag measures. I talk about consistency and calibration between practices in multiple practice organizations and within a single practice. Lots of writer downers in a very compact episode. I hope you guys get some value from it and let us know. Don't forget to visit us over on Facebook on the dental success institute. Facebook group, not the page, but the Facebook group. And of course, doctor Mark cost us on Instagram. I would love it if you guys would go on over and follow us and interact with our content over there. Also dental success TV on YouTube, all right guys, have a wonderful day. We'll talk to you soon. All right, our weekly growth meetings. You guys have heard us talk a lot about the book, the four disciplines of execution. That is the framework that we use in our entire organization to structure our team meeting agendas. So these weekly growth meetings, we talk about a few different things. We talk about the wig. You guys have heard people in the transformation contest talking about the wig. The wig just stands for wildly important goal. Those are the one or two or three big things that you're working on for your entire organization for the year. For instance, I want to grow the practice by 20%. I want to decrease overhead by 15%. I want 240 new patients this year. I just pulled that out of the air, okay? If those are our three wigs, those are three wildly important goals when it comes to finances. That's what everybody's going to focus on in the team meetings, but you can't go into a team meeting and say to the team, great news, guys. I got our wigs. I came home from this conference. This guy, Mark Costas told me that I need wigs. Wigs are wildly important goals. We're going to grow the practice by 20%. We're going to decrease overhead by 15%. And we're going to get 240 new patients in the next 12 months. High 5s, everybody. Let's go out there and get them. That doesn't help. How does each individual department each individual person within that department contribute to that overall goal? And we do that by defining exactly what our lead measures are for the week. The lead measures mean how can I contribute to the overall wig in my department? How can I contribute to the overall wig as an individual? And in the beginning, we're going to define those for them because they're not going to understand what a wig is. They're not going to understand what a lead measure is. And they're not going to come up with great ideas on how they can contribute. So in the beginning, for instance, the hygiene department would say, okay, I think I want to contribute to the wig by getting an 80% acceptance rate for fluoride. Let's work on that this week. We're going to keep track of that on the whiteboard. So maybe for the front office, a way for them to contribute to the wig is to go from 60% close rate for incoming phone calls to 80% close rate. Maybe that would be their wig for the week. For the back office, one idea for a lead measure for a week would be, let's get three unscheduled treatments per day on the schedule. That's just an example. That's how the back office can contribute to the wig. The idea here is taking non producers and somehow turning them into producers. Traditionally, a front office person is not a producer. We can turn them into a producer by closing more cases if they're delivering the treatment plans. Or getting more butts in the seats. More people that call in to come into the office for a new patient exam. All of a sudden, a non producer now is a producer. There is a tangible link between what they are doing in their performance daily. To the production of the practice. Non producer and to producer. For the back office, they don't produce dentistry. But if they get on the books two or three or 5 unscheduled treatments per day, they now have become a producer. That is how they're contributing to the wig. Okay? Does that make sense? So in the weekly wig meetings or the weekly growth meetings, we are going over first, recognition. The first thing that we do is recognize somebody in the practice for doing something good. We always try to start all of our meetings with some sort of recognition. We have two awards that we give out. We have the Wonder Woman award. We have a pin. We have a bracelet. We have a tiara. We take a picture of them with a Polaroid camera, and they are the Wonder Woman of the week. We recognize them for doing something good that week. We now have a guy gentis, Jake, guy jennis, and one of our offices. So we have another award called the rhino award. Because he probably doesn't want to win the Wonder Woman award. The rhino award goes to somebody that pushed through a hard challenge and charged on anyway. Misses Jones was really mean to me. I somehow figured out how smooth that off with her. You win the rhino award for a week. Whatever it happens to be, we recognize somebody, start the meetings off in a positive way. Next, we review our practice wigs. So everybody, when we walk into any of our practices, anybody we point to the sterile tech or the hygienist or the office manager, or the front desk person, we say, hey, what are your three primary goals this year? Everybody knows. 20% growth, 15% decrease in overhead, 240 new patients. And it doesn't even have to be financial guys. It could be our wigs for the year, get our operations manual done.

"Of the creative producer who's a creative director who's sitting there and ideating and trying to figure out the pitch. You're not going to pull that person out of that process to say do you need 7 artists? Do you need three? Do you think you can get it done in two weeks? Do you think even 5? I feel like there's almost like a hybrid role for the right size studio that could be really, really beneficial that doesn't really have a name yet. I always put in my head a creative creative producer. But I feel like there's another role that started, especially as we start taking on this wider range of types of jobs that are right over the horizon coming up to motion design studios. Yeah, that's a great question. The title creative producer has existed in different segments of our industry. And I think of like when I did movie trailers, a producer there really was kind of the creative director way more than they were the business manager, like in other segments of industry. So there is a role there, but you're right, there is an opportunity for someone who's creatively minded and technically minded to do a center role. If you come up to the creative ranks, you usually end up in a technical director role and doing the same thing where a producer asks TD, can you tell me who I need? How long it's intake, the software I need. And that technical director can walk through those elements. But coming from the creative side, many creatives are many producers are creative. And so coming up through the producer ranks, that creative producer has the opportunity to say, I know what it takes to get something beautiful out the door. And I understand that some of the creative decisions that he made, maybe I'd be more viable in a certain producer role than actually be the one pushing the pixels out the door or doing the face to face client meetings and getting that presentation done..

"What's awesome awesome about that conversion is there's a technical side of production that the creative person knows. They've been in deep inside the software. They know the filters and the rendering issues and the composite problems that would come up. So that they can anticipate them sooner and solve those issues or solve them for multiple people. When you're on the box yourself, you can fix it for yourself. If you take on a producer role, our technical producer role, you can systematically fix it for a whole company or even sometimes for whole industry. So I love when that creative person steps into that role, has that thought and does take on that responsibility. You can say the tension that would exist is sometimes your people are taking on that role in spite to show a producer. I can actually do it. And they might be missing some of those other attributes of how do you empathize and how do you add clarity and how do you consider the other pieces of the pie than just the creative? So no matter what I feel like you want multiple sources of input in that production team. So there's balance between that center job because they really are the spoke of a wheel in so many decisions are being made for the company and for the project for the creative for the client. Joseph the cash, like all of those pieces are really going to come together on one person's shoulder. And the method and the practice that they have learned and couldn't put in places is great when it's working symbiotically with all those elements. There's a secret tip in there, I think, for a studio that's starting to grow. That's getting larger. And there's decisions to be made, whether it's the EP or the how to production or the owner, that producing core, I've always found this. They're very responsible for what the outward facing culture of a studio actually has perceived as. Whereas the creative directors really a lot of times be the owner of the crave directory can really help establish the inward facing culture, the language you use, the vibe, the way you talk about yourselves, but the producers really manage a lot of what a client may think of you. And I feel like there's a lot of times where that clash of the inward facing culture and the outward phasing presentation of it, those break down in terms of like the overall corporate culture and having an artist in as a junior producer working their way up the line, I feel like helps kind of find that balance where the way you talk about yourself out to the world and the way you talk about yourself inside start to find some kind of equilibrium, I think. Those have been the healthiest producing teams I've worked within when it's a studio that's bigger than an EP and one producer. When you have a team of 5 or four, you have a squad of producers all trying to keep everything spinning. That mix has there's been something magical. There's an alchemy when you have that mix, I think, of producers. I think you're describing.
"producer" Discussed on School of Motion Podcast
"There's sometimes it's physically like the producers sit above or below and they're in a separate place. But a lot of times it's just strategically, it feels like they're set up against each other. Their goals and intentions are actually like, oh, you know what? The creatives have to try to get the most beautiful most creative most inventive thing in the producers have to make sure they don't bankrupt the company, but the best situations I've been in is whether joined at the hip as true true partners because there's something interesting when you work at a shop as a creative that gets to work with a producer that you're not just looking at that one job. You're also looking at the jobs alongside it, the opportunity is getting ready to come in and the ones that have just finished that may be able to be exploited or leveled up for even bigger relationships. The job that just shipped is sometimes the best way to open the next stage with that client, the creative director is very rarely ever thinking about that, but they're going to get tapped on the shoulder by the producer to make it happen. Those two people should be working way more together in the big picture and the vision kind of state of the studio as well. Have you ever really had a producer that's been able to do that that's been able to kind of be like, oh, I understand the wide picture, but also can go very deep on one single thing. At the same time, because I've only had in the 20 plus years I've been here, I've only had one partner in my entire career that's been that type of producer. Well, I'll say yes, I've been fortunate to work with some producers, especially like at the senior and executive producer level that really do have that sense of I'm here to facilitate and bring to life this vision called this is where this creative company is going..

"So that guiding or building up of your producer is a way greater impact on all the possibilities of project can go, the relationship you have with a client in the long term, the direct injection of your business. And even the direction of your career, if you find a good partner in a producer, that producer can make really amazing things with you for your entire career. I think there's a great magic and ability in our industry when we are finding those connections and making them well. I love what you said about that because I really feel like that's half of the producers the producer producers issue is there really are those four things, right? You said, the project itself, the company, the client, and the creative team, like you're literally juggling four of those. You're spending all four of those plates at the same time, and it's very typically not just one set of four plates. You're looking at the past and trying to figure out what to learn from or to avoid. You've got whatever is current right now, but a producer a lot of times is also like the tip of the spear when the future jobs. The RFPs are coming in. The request, the bids, the all of those things, is that something you talk about in the producers masterclass because I feel like there's a lot of tactical things, right? There's tools you've talked about harvest a couple of times. There's things that you can adopt and methodology, but there's also just kind of like big picture point of view. Being able to understand, do you talk about that in produces how do you get your head around the full full suite of things that producer is going to be asked to kind of take advantage of or take control of in a studio? Well, I'll jump in and say the lesson I've learned.
"producer" Discussed on School of Motion Podcast
"Because like you said, there is no, you were from imaginary forces. I was there. You'd come in as a PA. You might be able to be a coordinator. You'd sit and watch a junior producer that junior producer gets promoted a senior. They spend a little time and then you hop into like a one off senior producing position, but you have somebody there to kind of like guide rally. And then you just work your way up until you had a production, managing producer, whatever those things might be. There's a natural hierarchy, the same way artists have. And that has been gone for I feel quite a while, or it's been honestly out. I have not seen. I've seen junior producer producer relationships in the last ten years. But I have never the word coordinator has rarely existed unless you're talking about a resource manager only. So solo procession of just finding booking talent. But PA, I mean, why would you need one anymore? There aren't any there's no need to have just people sitting around waiting to help fix something with clients don't show up in your office anymore. There isn't tapes to run across town. So that generational thing that we skipped is really something that you can see it in truly the age of most producers. Or at least successful producers. You can just see it in our age. I was a producer at 24. I have met a 24 producer 24 year old producer at all. No, but I've seen a lot of 24 year old predators. I feel like predators ate the PA job PA title. You're expected walking in the door to be able to throw a little bit of graphics together, know how to write a good email to a client, be able to produce, sit on final cut or premiere and cut something together, make a sizzle, do some social media, like that is the equivalent of what IPA position used to be 5 years ago, 60 year old years ago, 7 years ago..

I love but i you know i thought the book is also was better than this. And but even that's not so much great and i could have really picked. I picked the new one to talk about this episode. Because it's top of mind. But it's also symptomatic of their work with kevin shirley and kevin shirley been there producer ever since brave new world. So we're going back a long ways now. Several records and i just think they've gone downhill with pretty much every up every album that they've done with him and it's like especially this new one. The biggest thing that bugs me is like the base. Steve harris's bass guitar has always been like the loudest thing on their records. At least since. I started working with him. That's part of their charm. I guess if you're if you're fan. But i but the part of this one that really bugs me is. Yeah that's the case again but also nicos drums are way up in the mix and it's like wired the drums the highest thing in the mix on this thing and it's just it's produced so strangely guitars are buried. The songs are over long. But i am not going to get into the songwriting. Because that has nothing to do with kevin shirley although because we're just talking about producers here but it's just one of those things were i just don't i and i'm wondering how much of this is really kevin shirley. Or how much is steve harris. Barking orders and kevin going. Yes master and doing what he wants. I mean when bands get to a certain level you know when young and upcoming band and you put in the studio with somebody who's a legendary producer and that producer goes. Hey sit stay played. Ed you do it. You know. but there's a point in a lot of these bands careers where they become so big. Who comes in and tells them what to do. I mean a lot of our favorite bands have been to that point. Were to me the producers. Always supposed to be the guy that grabs the reins and directly. You know the animal knows where it wants to go but it needs somebody to hold that leash to get them to where it needs to be so that the final destination is exactly the way they envisioned it before. They started the quest to creating new music. That's right and so if the animals just dragging the the producer around all that's not gonna work so great you know and a lot of bands have gotten to that point where they're megastars now and nobody's gonna come in and tell them what to do. You know it's like the difference between you know. Kiss destroyer with bob azran and kiss revenge with bob azran destroyer lady and everything. He told him to do jump. How high here. We go got heels on jump..

"It's going to take a commitment from the band. Okay you guys are not feeling equal as moneymakers in this whole situation here. But here's the situation. Where you guys can be equals set. The money aside said the differences aside. Let's write some songs that are going to kick ass and be the greatest thing that you guys have ever done. So peter chris you bring me your best song and ace freely you bring me your best song and then gene simmons brings one paul stanley brings one and the rest of them are songs that they work on together. These guys aren't going to say. I'm to save this for solo project because at this point they should be all in on kiss and if this album would have been as good as it should have been no bruce cubic. No tommy thayer no kevin valentine just kiss with eddie kramer in their laying down own classic kiss style given every member there do letting everybody contribute and really takes him and the attitude of we're gonna put out the best album of our career now at that time all eddie kramer in the ninety s. He was winning grammy awards and he was working with jimi hendrix is a state and he was working on producing all that unreleased music that came out in the nineties once the jimi hendrix estate. Got the right stall at soft back and if that would have been a thing where kissed would've said ra you know. Maybe the money's not equal. Let's at least make it right on the album and come together as a team because we know these guys can write great songs together. It would have been awesome to see what psycho circus could been. If it wasn't the bullshit album it ended up being right. And i think with that attitude and eddie kramer. I'd be interested to see what would have been like so on this one. Though you're you're not only you're not only proposing a producer switch you're proposing an attitude switz- for the whole bay. It's it's gotta be because. I mean bruce fairbairn is going to go in there and he's like okay. I'm just gonna make this be epic and poppy and something that can be played on. Radio kiss is an aerosmith and kiss and bon jovi..

"It to us. Good is he gives us max norman. In a classic zone. I would absolutely be a first day buyer for an ozzy record with maximum producing. I would be. I would love to hear that. Oh yeah that's a great idea in. Actually the ordinary man record kind of grew on me over time i i. It's not i. I think people were kind of blowing that one out of proportion for how bad it well. Yeah the the the the low lights are low but there were some decent songs on that record. I thought i don't know if you stand up is collection. I think its way towards the bottom for sure. I liked it better than some of the other more. Modern releases put out. Yeah i thought it was more interesting than some of the gus g material it had its moments and it had some good songs but it also had elton john and post malone. I liked that. He took a few more chances..

"Because like i said we were thinking about maybe coming back and doing this again because there's so many possibilities to maybe next time we'll take some some of our friends that may wanna come on the show with us and share. There's you know so that'd be that's something we look forward to doing and like i said before we started recording. Today we did some recording christner and show where we discussed what we're doing today. We tried to figure out if we were going to pick any same albums or any same producers and so we figured out that without giving it away to each other that we each picked a kiss album. And we each picked an ozzy album so we decided. Save those for the end so chris. I've got an ozzy album. That i'm going to switch producers on and you've got an is either we're going to switch producers on what do you got. Well it's a perfect segue because Involved michael wagner also so And this is a bit of a cheat because he kind of was the producer for this record. It's a complicated story. But so you know. Michael did no more tears. Which one ozzy's big might be ozzie's biggest solo album. I'm not sure but you know huge record. Then around ninety four he started working on the next record and actually early on in ninety four. He was actually writing with steve vai for the record and apparently they had a falling out but Ozzy got together with michael wagner. And they did. They recorded songs with mike. I nece randy castio zach. Basically the touring band and and it's with the intention to make it sound like no more tears and because obvious why would you you know metal with success and they did that in reno in early ninety four after the tour was over and they had seven songs done and michael told us the story himself and my jaw hit the floor below it. It shouldn't have because it's record. Companies being record companies but then wreck the cell. He turned in some of the songs i heard. Some of the rough mixes and epic records. Said we wanted to sound like soundgarden. Bad motor finger had come out and was huge. Then they said oh music's changed you know. Things have changed for bands like motley crue. Things have changed for bands like poison will then clearly that must mean things have to change for guy like ozzy. Yeah and so. They went ahead and they and michael of course came back and was like well. If you don't want it to sound like a michael wagner record then. I'll just drop off the project. Yeah the quit. And then The accompanied metal even further and wound up having a different lineup recorded. with Michael biehn horn buying horn producing it and it You know and i you know i got this story out of we you know. We got the story out of michael just purely on me mentioning that i loved that i liked the most this record and not even realizing he was a part of it at. We were just having a chat and he goes. Do you like that. That album and i said yeah. And what do you think of this. He's like this after we've been recording with them for like two hours are getting ready to leave one of the most amazing things that ever happened to us as a show and then he goes.

"producer" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"It. That is the producer Charles de King. It's also the next installment of the Portrait series on Bloomberg. Quick Take and behind that portrait series. Bloomberg Quick. Take chief correspondent Jason Kelly. Of course, my old partner in crime, He joins me on the Axis line in Sleepy Hollow. This is so on brand for you the type of things you're interested in and tell us that you know, Jason specifically why you wanted to sit down with him. Well, Hi, Carol. Hi to be with you have to be pre fourth of July. Um, you know, it's interesting. First of all, it was so amazing to actually sit down with you and I got to go. And spend some time with Charles at his home in Los Angeles. Then we actually took a little road trip to another part of Beverly Hills and stood outside his first office at W. M. E. William Morris and Associates. Where he started in the mailroom. You know, this is a guy who grew up in Decatur, Georgia, went to Vanderbilt went to Howard got a law degree. And the reason I wanted to tell the story to actually answer your question is because I think we have spent a lot of time. Collectively thinking about representation on screen and I wanted to look at representation behind the camera and most importantly and you and I've been doing this for a long time. Following the money who's holding the purse strings? And the answer? Charles King? Well, that is why How did he get there, though? How difficult was that process? You know, it was an interesting process because it goes back to actually him being a kid. And seeing this is going to be a little bit of a throwback forever. You and me, remember l a law Never. Blair under the Blair Underwood character? Yes. He basically watched l a law as a kid and said, Hold on. There is a black lawyer. That guy looks like me. I could do that He goes to law school. And But even when he was at Vanderbilt as an undergrad, he sort of got bit by the entertainment bug. And so he knew he wanted to be in that business, and someone eventually said to him. Look, you would make a great agent. Why don't you head out? And you know that the way you have to start in the business is literally in the mail room. You start in the mail room that he become an assistant. Then you become a junior agent. True agent, but he had this meteoric rise there at what is now known as you know, Endeavor. And what he saw was this opportunity to represent literally represent people who weren't being represented. And so he ends up representing Tyler Perry and many others. And then ultimately, he goes out on his own to say, You know what? I want to be the guy putting all of this together, right? And you know, it's interesting. I love what you said about l a lot because Jason how many conversations have you and I had about the importance of having these role models, but the importance of visually being able to see role models, whether it's where you work where you go to school or whether what you're watching up on the big screen or on streaming. Look, you people of all walks of life need to see people like themselves doing things right. And I think What's really important about that, too, is you know a Tyler Perry or an Oprah or a Shonda Rhimes? These are generational talents, right? I mean, these are lightning in a bottle in many ways, and Charles would be the first to say Listen. He's a very talented guy. But there are a lot more opportunities to be an agent or be a producer, or, you know, be somehow involved in that ecosystem, and you can make a huge impact. In the business world and I will tell you in terms of the reaction that I'm getting to this piece. That's one of the things that's really coming back to me. So are things getting better when it comes to Hollywood? How many times have we done stories too about you know, it's a very white Hollywood He is behind the scenes. He is providing the money or providing the supply chain and infrastructure to get things done that in a more diverse way. Is it getting easier? I think it would you say it is a little bit easier. I mean, look at the results are going to have to speak for themselves. You talked about the historic nature of Judas in the Black Messiah. You know, One of the cool things about this piece was I got to talk about Charles to both. Ted Sarandos, the CEO of Netflix, as well as Ryan Coogler, of course, the director of Black Panther who ended up being another producer on Judas. This was the project that Ryan Cooker said. I've got to do this. He got together with the director Shaka King. They brought Charles King. No relation into the mix. He raised the money. So that was historic, You know, but we are not very far removed from hashtag Oscars so white, we know that, um, the academy is making some movement ultimately. The money does the talking and I think one of the things that is happening is you are seeing that there is not just a domestic audience, but a global audience. All eyes, of course, are going to be on Ryan Cukor's next project. I spoke to him while he was in pre production for like Panther two. Oh, my God, I can't wait either. Hey, where can we find quick take and you're a portrait series. So the Portrait series you can find it on our YouTube channel for Bloomberg. Quick Take.
