State university We got a little bit of pay for you know certain projects. That were either really demanding. They were actually working with production companies. So i had some legitimate pretty cool projects that we did. I met some celebrities. They were you know very high level celebrities but you know you can still make this argument that okay you got something out of that you You actually were enriched in the community and made some connections when you go to these schools in your performing. It's basically just a theater group and you don't get paid anything not even a stipend so this can get really shady. So let's talk about the drama studio and see what kind of you know. Wonderful acting training providing these young people. The school was conceived and run by graduates at the prestigious drama center in london.

"Easiest news that we can find. I have always been told that. I was perceptive. Since was a child that can remember people saying that about me that i was a critical thinker. That was different from other children I had a kind of uncanny ability to for Not predictions but you know seeing patterns and we know putting those patterns together and then saying well. This is most likely what's going to happen. And as i talked about it before. It's really not that difficult. Because generally what happens in a chaotic world in world that lacks order. Which is the world we live in the real world. We live in a world with no order Whatever the source of that non order is to whoever is in charge of the world but It's a not ordering it's chaotic and so you can pretty much expect murphy's law you can expect the worst to go wrong if you don't prepare for it and I've done so now on hollywood and Something happened over the weekend that i was completely unaware of even though i'm in the industry and i don't even really know this person to be completely honest with you because i have not been bestowed with the the right to have access to these people who rule the entertainment industry. I'm a lowly actor and no one listens to actors An actor can can tell you the truth and people will think you're lying because you're an actor It's a prejudice that people have these -ssume that we're all liars They soon that we all have some insidious you know Underlying agenda which is ridiculous because everyone has their own agenda. And so what you're really saying. Is that actors are people and yes. That's true but a lot of times people say that in a negative way like having their manipulative or whatever. Okay whatever stereotype. You read online. Whatever that superfluous. But the point is is that as i was doing all these episodes about the you know negatives the negative dark side of hollywood that especially liberals for some reason. I don't wanna talk about it. I don't really know why we're liberal. We're supposed to expose injustice. And that's what i'm about in i've experienced injustice is a member of the entertainment community What i at the time didn't realize abuse wasn't sexual in any way but basically being worked to death and Expected to be superman. When i when no one is and I would like to share with you an article that blew my mind today and it's on. Nbc news in the opinion section. That spy kelly hartop who is a journalist. Editor look coach And it's on scott rudin again. I don't know how to pronounce this guy's name But it's called a hollywood and broadway must stop grooming actors for abuse or scott. Rudin will still thrive and so this is really an indictment of the way that actors are taught that you must sacrifice everything for the show that the show must go on and this is taken more seriously in certain acting communities than others. Obviously your community feeder generally isn't going to be that abusive but again you know you have to be careful and that can deteriorate into cult too. I mean i've seen you know you get these Producers or casting directors who think they're just the end all be all of acting and they know every little thing about it and You know a they lure these kind of young artists in and you know with the promise of work and the next thing you know..

"Regardless of the services that you're offering it. It's just so important to figure out what it is that you offer and use plain language to describe it. I can't tell you one thing. I don't miss about shows is all of the booths and all of the talk that uses the same words over and over again we're digital wealth management were digital transformation Where data provider. Where this. we're that i mean. All of these things become meaningless about what you do again. I mean i probably repeated ad nauseam on this podcast but it's really critical to say why you do it right. What is the point of doing it. Or how can you help people just by performing these functions. You know i grew up in detroit which you know like i tell people no one wants to look under the hood they just wanna get in the car and drive from point. A. to point b. And that's it. They don't need to know how it works. Simon cynic the why question you want you in business versus what and you're always going to sell more. If you explain the why again your customers understand the why versus also and i think the wires really important and but then eliminating the how right sometimes in in the first round rate. It's just the the why in telling your story. I mean if you want to talk about that a little bit. Also i mean. People storytelling is a really effective way of communicating with an clients. But i think again sometimes advisors and firms take storytelling to the nth degree. Like i get it that everybody's excited about the fintech or wealth tech firm that they've started or their growing but if the name of the firm has something that you know. Is your in-laws name. Times your city you were born in or some esoteric meaning like nobody really cares about that again right so you don't need to add that part of your story You know. I think that What people really need to do in terms of storytelling is to talk about their process.

"People just need to add a little thought to this and they would come to these. Pusan's themselves when you said multiple entry points is also. There's no one right or wrong. Way to approach a particular group of people because they're all different than they they sub segment out in many different ways and just like some people get along with other people better. Some i know men who got along with men get better have been get along with women better like all the people who worked for me all my direct reports are women right and so you could say well. Maybe i worked better with women. You know it's a know a different topic but Everyone can you have to ask that. They're still there. They haven't quit yet so they must like. They must be appreciative of something. But but everyone's different. Everyone approaches their their life's different ever pushes their wealth. Different ever approaches the use of technology differently. And one thing you mentioned in your article was resistance to digital adoption. Can you talking about that. And like how how you're overcoming that that's the opposite of which ones are doing the best which ones are resisting it. How to overcome that. So i think that The resistance to digital adoption really has come from the financial advisory world right and come from the enterprise firms rather than from the end users In this article we really explorer that it was the clients pushing up on the firms to really gain access to your accounts online because they wanted to have real time information and i think the pandemic relate drove a lot of that also With you know in terms of options. It's unfortunate right that of course the pandemic has been so awful and a tragedy for so many people around the world but it took a pandemic to actually drive digital adoption and for firms to actually Get over their security concerns. Get over some of the concerns that they might have in terms of digital and really just embrace it because there was no other alternative. So you know you could be just as you know unsecure as people say you like you can have a bunch of files in leave them in a taxi right you could have you know files can come from all over. But i think now that we've taken this big strong leap to digital. I don't think there's ever going to be any going back so even those financial advisors and firms that you believe that it's a relationship business which of course it is Just think about digital as free in them up from routine repetitive tasks so they have more time to build relationships so i think the resistance has really been part of the industry right not on. The part of the article is something we've been talking about for wall. Merrill lynch seems to be leading the industry and they're one of the largest firms wirehouse and usually the largest firms tend to be slower and sluggish and can't innovate merrill with their marijuana product Other other technology first initiatives smith beat in the opposite. Do you have any insight into how they're doing that. How they're they're beating what. What's called the innovative. The innovators dilemma. So i think that i'm marilyn braces that opportunity which is multiple entry points merrill edge merrill wind They have something that they announced last year. Call the called the client experience. The customer experience workstation and other words they're thinking about it from a more clientcentric point of view which is what needs to happen instead of from the adviser point of view..

"A lot of things so you had written something on on one of your many many content distribution platforms. I think it was forbes. Were you you were talking about the new digital thundering herd and why advisors and wealth managers shouldn't are over focusing on millennials. You want to expand on that shirk shirks. This is one of my very favorite topics because I think that You know. I founded my firm almost thirteen years ago around. The idea of millennial is in your brand. The idea there was that there are so many old tired wealth management brand whether their bank brands are a technology brands everyone in the ecosystem. A lot of really old brands. It didn't resonate with younger. Investors and so The idea there. I think is still relevant to appeal to a wide range of investors and buyers today Even tech vendors right selling to a younger age person so the idea that your brand needs to resonate across multi generations is still really valid. I think this whole idea really went awry was in terms of over segmentation in other words. People thinking these products are these services are for millennials so enter robo advisor for example Millennials are digital millennials went online trading. Eleni went online portfolios millennial millennial while when you dig down into it you can find out that it's really not about money. Also for example The cap gemini world wealth report year-over-year produced statistics saying that the highest digital adoption is really among ultra high net. Worth baby boomers and it stands to reason right. Why because they are generally mall formerly right global and who thinks that they are not really digitally savvy. of course they are and so. It's no surprise to me. But i think that people miss an opportunity by over segmenting and thinking too narrowly about digital offerings Similarly the piece that you're talking about With their frank kabeer sethi Merrill lynch says that eighty five percent of their clients in the ten million plus cohort where the fastest and quickest to digital adoption So i think that You know it really flies in the face of what people are thinking. So there's no reason over segment you wanna have a lot of different entry points but no reason to say you know this product or the service really is for millennials this fund you know ahead of international limits as for women for example. This one is for this other narrow cohort or segment. It's better to just have multiple entry points and let the people choose the numerous times and it's not just their age that defines what investors looking for from their wealth manager. It's really about behavior right so You know you. And i could be jax. Could be baby boomer. But we're really more digital leaning Brought up your kids. So i have two sons. One of my kids is very Digitally or into when it comes to financial advice and the other one's not so big nineteen based on age really doesn't work. I reminds me sort of chinese astrology. Like you're born in europe. The dog and that means that everyone in that year is the same. We know that. That's not true I'm sure much of your audience You know men and women both realized that women are not all the same and so women are cannot be unleash having products oriented to women especially when they're represent fifty one percent of the population doesn't really work either that was lost on a lot of firms that started up their female only targeted robo advisers whether firms that just didn't make it a lot of traction because they didn't realize that that's not it's not a thing it's not a thing. It's not a niche right. I've been writing about that for a lot of years. Also i mean how can there be products that goto actually in not only new. But you know..

Remembering Harold Prince, Synonymous With Broadway
"Musical Michael guest all that coming up on the frame news comes today that Broadway director and producer Harold Prince is dead at the the age of ninety one according to a statement the musical theater giant died in Reykjavik Iceland after a short illness a prolific producer prince had his hands sculpting some the most endearing and enduring musical classics including West Side Story Sweeney Todd and fiddler on the roof. Jesse Green is the CO chief theater critic of the New York Times uh-huh any join me to talk about Herald prince in his career in musical theater. I started out by playing him a little bit of a tune. You might have heard before from west side story what Prince again as stage manager and producer not as part of the creative team of these shows. It's important to the rest of his career that he knew how to put shows on and not just how to artistically lead them and in west side story and some of the early shows we're seeing more of a matter of his taste which was different from the taste of a lot of the people working at the time then we are car sharing his artistic vision which came into play a little bit later the modern musical can be very political and have a strong point of view. I'm thinking of maybe Hamilton or we're going to be kind of a political and completely bland like Disney's beauty and the beast what was Herald Prince's bias but he was certainly interested in talking about the real world within the theater he was not only talking about it but bringing that to the forefront so a typical thing that how prints how prince show would do would be to invert the usual way you would get information in the great musicals of the Golden Age of Broadway you would typically get a story with characters that suggested a theme what Prince and his collaborators started to do in the seventies in particular is to flip that and begin with the theme and then fit the characters and plot around it so often you get these concepts musically that don't even have very much of a plot in and some people would say even characters but have these very powerful themes that people related to an example would be company where the team is marriage and you don't even really know exactly what's going on for most of the show. I'll play a clip from company. This is Elaine stritch singing. Here's to the ladies who lunch stay smart are again rushing to their classes in October. What was his reputation in terms of working with actors like Elaine Elaine stritch well. He was known as a pretty good disciplinarian. I'll say that much but you had to be if you were going to work with Elaine stritch and the kinds of people that he I chose to cast and that came from the fact that he had been producer and often was the producer of his own show so he had double quote with him whenever he went into that rehearsal room. I WANNA to play a clip from a New York Times interview with Prince that you have up on your site now. This is him talking about the aftermath of a nervous breakdown in its youth. I came to my my parents and said I think there's something really wrong. It's just a black cloud over everything and within a space space about three months it began to go away. The legacy of it was that I I came out of it. A different person extremely ambitious. I wanted what I wanted and I was Gonna get it. I can't help but think of another contemporary prey Broadway producers Scott Rudin right now who is equally driven. Was He really that driven was he. I guess somebody who would never take no for an answer. He certainly it was driven but he actually was terrifically enthusiastic and generally very positive. I actually was his apprentice at one point in the <hes> in the eighties and and I got to see him at work and I never saw him fall into those bunks that most artists do there was always more work to be done on the current in project but more than that he would have two three four five other projects in various states of readiness as you

Inside Aaron Sorkin's 'Mockingbird' story
"Playwright and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin says he was eager to adapt. Harper Lee's to kill a Mockingbird for Broadway. But he still had some serious. Reservations about the job. I said yes, knowing really it was a suicide mission because people have a very special relationship to the novel. And it's a great book. What could I do but make it less than than what it was? And the acting future of Jesse smollet is still unknown. But his character on empire just made TV history all that up on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn when Tony nominations are revealed next week to kill a Mockingbird will likely get a lot of attention almost certainly for Jeff Daniels who plays Atticus Finch, but the adaptation by earned Sorkin was far from easy. Scott Rudin secured, the rights to the patient and got Harper Lee's personal approval of Sorkin. It's the playwright. But then things started to go awry following Lee's death three years ago the estate eventually sued to stop the production. We'll get to the lawsuit in a bit. But when I spoke with Sorkin about to kill a Mockingbird. He I told me why his first draft didn't work. I simply try to do. No harm. I I took the most essential scenes that you need to tell the story, and I stood them up and dramatize them and the whole thing felt like a greatest hits album done by tribute band. And I turned it in and Scott who usually at that point. Would meet with me for days and ended up with hundreds of notes to go back and do the second draft with he met with me for less than thirty minutes and gave me two notes. And the second note was the one that changed everything. What Scott said was that Atticus can't be advocates from the beginning of the play to the end of the play. He's got a change. That's what protagonist does a protagonist has a flaw protagonist put through something and changes as a result. And I thought well, of course, Scott's right? That has to be what happens in a play. I wonder how Harper Lee got away with an Abacus who's the same. At the beginning of the book is at the end of the book, how Horton Foote got away with an Atticus in the movie who's the same at the beginning of the movie is the is at the end of the movie. And that's when I realized that advocates isn't the protagonist in the novel or the movie scout is she's the one who changes her flaws that she's young and the changes that she loses someone for innocence. And while I wanted scout. And dill to remain protagonists in the play. I wanted advocates to be the central protagonist. I wanted him to be put through something. I wanted him to have a flaw on. I wanted him to change is a result. And what happened in that moment was that? I simply stopped thinking about the word adaptation that it. No longer was my goal to gently swallow the novel in bubble wrap and transfer it to a Broadway stage that I was going to write a new play taking the circumstances that Harper Lee put on the table. And that's when things started to take off. So I'm gonna ask you this. Obviously, it's a period piece. But I'm gonna talk about it's modern relevance of which there is a tremendous amount. What was happening in the world as you were adapting or reimagining, but ever we're gonna do whatever verb are gonna use to describe what you were doing with harp. Elise novel to make it a play. Yeah. Well, what was happening in the world. Was Trump was elected president Charlottesville was happening. Charlottesville became an important touchdown in this. And I'll tell you why Atticus in the in the novel. This was in thinking about what flaw can Atticus half. Does he go from being a bad lawyer to a good lawyer, a bad father to a loving father a racist believing injustice in a quality, and obviously no on all three? What I realized was that Atticus already had a flaw. Harper Lee gave him one. It's just that. When we were learning the book, we were taught that it was a virtue advocates says throughout the book that there's goodness in every single chicks, go get along better with all kinds of folks never really understand it until you consider things from his point of view. Climates out of his skin woke rounding he excuses. Bob, Buell's racism by saying the man just losses WPA job. You know, it's he excuses. Mrs Dubose is racism by she recently stopped taking her medicine or morphine. He excuses. The town's racism. This is the deep south things happen slower here, you know, give gift people time and thinking about all that at the same time at Charlottesville happened in it started. What Atticus was saying was starting to sound to me like there were fine people on both sides. Right. And that's when the bells rang, and and I was really able to kind of go from a walk to a gallop. We're talking with earned Sorkin about his ad obtain of Harper Lee's novel to kill a Mockingbird. I wanna play a scene between Atticus Finch and Tom Robinson who's been accused of raping a white woman. And the story can't tell you how to plead, but I can't. And I must give you my best advice. You won't be my lawyer. Very less thing. I won't the world be your lawyer right now negro man, what teenage girl wouldn't be going in with a win hands. But I'm compelled to defend us an officer of the court, and in that capacity of taken Salamo to give him a best council, which is that you cannot and you must not lead guilty and go to jail for a crime that you did not could not commit. So how do you figure out a way to dramatize what Atticus is going through? And how he's changing the way that he sees an excuses behavior through the play. What tricks? What are the things that you are able to do with the text and through new dialogue and putting dialogue and other characters mouse, they get you to that place where he can evolve for me, a big part of Attica ses journey in this play is going from someone who says, I know these people these are our, friends and neighbors sure some of them may be stuck in the old ways. But there are none of them that are so far gone. They would send an obviously innocent man to the electric chair, and he discovers that he doesn't know his friends and neighbors that to me does a really good job of of reflecting. I think how a lot of us no matter where you are on the political or ideological spectrum the way, a lot of us have felt these last few years that we thought we knew our fellow Americans. But we didn't we were wrong about our friends and neighbors, and that's one of the reasons why this play based on a book that sixty years old that takes place ninety years ago feels so much like today.

Oh arrives in restaurants around the country. The company impossible foods won all kinds of best of CAS awards at the big tech show in Las Vegas last month for creating a plant based meat replacement that smells tastes and looks like real beef. I tried version one point zero at my neighborhood burger place in Oakland. And I admit it's pretty close. There's also all kinds of science going into growing meat from real meat sells LaRussa Rudin co is a biotechnology expert and visiting scholar in emerging technology at MIT, she says climate, change animal, welfare and human health are all driving huge investment in meat replacement technologies. So mcq plant side, we've probably have hundreds of millions of dollars pouring in from various sources, including some of the companies going public and some of the big ones have valuations in the low billions of dollars the clean need space is a little bit behind it in. Terms of funding, but I would say easily that the funding has been in the tens of millions of dollars may be approaching hundreds of millions. What do you think what challenges might come up as some of these technologies and efforts start to scale so some of the potential downstream ripple effects? If you will are what are the components that go in what what is the supply chain? Like where are we going to get the ingredients that go into culturing, these cells heart of the downstream values based affects is what's going to happen to the people who currently are ranchers are farmers. So well, it seems like it makes a ton of environmental sense to switch over completely as with every technology. Right. It has a lot of unintended consequences. It does have unintended consequences and part of the bid about unintended consequences is that you don't always know what they're going to be. And I think one of the goals here is to have scandal up. That's. Affordable. So that this doesn't just become food for rich people, and that it instead provides food for everyone at what point do you think? I mean, it's hard to predict. But at what point do you think that tipping point could occur? I think it's really going to be depending on on the technology. That's used to scale up and to ensure that you can get the price point down to a reasonable level. And the way to do this is not necessarily an immediate switch from one to the other. But rather a series of little steps where we slowly start moving from traditional ways of providing high protein food to people to more novel ways, but not necessarily in one single jump. Lewis Rudin co is a visiting scholar in emerging technology at MIT now if you wanna compare plant based burgers beyond meat and other meat replacement company as burger in Carl's junior as of last month called the beyond fair. Famous star burger blind taste test. Anyone I would get it. I will get it again. And now for some related links venture capital investment in food tech is up into the rights over the last five years or so according to the analytics firm CB insights as of mid twenty eighteen food and drinks startups had raised about nine and a half billion dollars. And there are new venture capital funds popping up dedicated just to investing in food tech like stray dog capital, new crop, capital, and Tara capital and big food companies are also creating corporate funds last October the Kraft Heinz company launched one hundred million dollar venture capital fund to invest in food tech, Tyson Foods and the Campbell Soup company. Also have funds or investment in emerging technology lake meat replacement, but also in things like tracing the food supply chain for safety purposes. And actually, even though we talk a lot about what I like to call Petri meat when it comes to beef experts told us that coming up with fish replacement is almost more urgent raising. And feeding cattle is really terrible for the environment. But overfishing is a crisis. Like, we're running out of fish right now. The Wall Street Journal had a good story last fall about attempts to create fish alternatives using everything from tomatoes for a sushi like product called he me to eggplant carrots and root vegetables mixed with p protein.

"rudin" Discussed on Awards Chatter
"I know what was eight twenty four and Scott Rudin knew kind of came on at the same point. I talked to eight twenty four early when they were just distributor, which of course, like your it was like my dream. Yeah. For this film. And they were like well distributed if you get money, and then I didn't get money for so long actually became a financing. In the meantime, is funny because Scott Rudin says like this was so not. Part of the argument or like soda part of why they came on board. But I tried to get a little make happy that previously just come out. And I it sold, you know, however, one hundred thousand tickets whatever the road that previous year, and I was able to go like, okay. If just these people buy the tickets, the movie, you'll get a little bit of your money back to like, I can already prove to you that at least some of this is recoup -able. But Scott says like now, he just read the script and this this. This seems good. And let's director is a different thing than loving the script. Yeah. Yeah. The truth. It was a risk, and I'm incredibly grateful, but the risk is a lot of people do not want to take that risk. Right. But then you get there. And obviously prove that you were able to do it. And I think something like the pool scene where you have everything from the music thumping when she sees the cuter kid to the tracking shots, all it's very cinematic -ly skilled for somebody who you didn't go to school. You didn't make other short films. No before. So like just literally how did you know, what to do when you had to direct relying on my collaborators for sure enjoy my DP, and my producer Chris store and a lot of people. But part was just like maybe just believing that I could do it was an apartment to intimidate. I did get the green light like eight months before we shot because we had to shoot in the summer because it was a kids movie the end it was going to double the budget during the school year. So I had eight months for read a book a week and three watch three movies day. So there was some stuff I need to. I there's a lot of stuff I still need to learn technically, I'm very behind technically. But I had confidence in my at least my ability to work with actors. I felt like. And coming from the world of theater, and and making the specials like I tried to make my specials like films, and I tried to introduce some film grammar into my intimate specials, and I do believe that like making stuff prepares you to make stuff, and I had made stuff before I had had visions at least of what thing would feel like and that I had made something and I realized okay, that's how you can make it appear like this. That's how you can. And I definitely a ton to learn about filmmaking. Like, I have a lifetime hopefully left to learn about film make last a couple of minutes here..
"rudin" Discussed on Last Podcast on the Left
"He was an ardent believer in the quote lives unworthy of living belief that was gaining power. This is that term is big hugely Nazi thought the law alive unworthy of living and another term that haunts me. Which is the term useless eaters. Useless eaters. I'd hear that before it is. Yeah, that that is a very real non-serb. It's bone chilling. Oh, God, this belief pushed by Dr errands Rudin, whose lectures, Mangla regularly attended was that doctors should be in charge of destroying what they called life devoid of value starting with sterilization. Among those who were offered up for this program where schizophrenics epileptics the hereditarily blind and deaf the physically deformed manic depressive 's and alcohol IX meeting all three of us here all of us getting seralized what? Alcohol. Guys, get Serlin alcoholism. I get serious depressive this. Beer, you won't be medic science. I've collect counted my drinks, and I looked at a moderate drinker drinker for my size in my region. Also because there regularly going to lectures, where people like Ernst Rudin are doing the speeches where they're showing footage of cancer cells being destroyed by antibodies, and basically like what the antibodies they would have little like nut swastikas on them. And then the cancer cells would be labeled Jews to think. So they had already sting was like so deep inside. And so it starts with a slow roll out of being like, we're going to do these people that are very sick and hard, quote, unquote, hard on society, the the deform the people born handicapped, and we're gonna get rid of them. I in order to cleanse the bloodline, right? And they actually had full schools dedicated to this stuff they had these isolated schools that they would send all. All of the doctors, nurses, and everybody they would send them out to these isolated places, and they would teach eugenics there and chilling thing about that is that they would release a journal every single year about what they talked about what they were doing until nineteen thirty seven and then starting in nineteen thirty seven they didn't tell anybody what they talked about. All they did was say we had a conference here. They would not say anything because that was when they were really starting to the horrible shit. And of course, they also meet a lot of money of SuperBeets infomer-. Evidently, I don't really know. This Henry beets are the world's greatest food superfoods SuperFood as soon as long as they don't calling Uber food. No. It was a very short jump from the sterilization of these types of people to their full on murder. What Robert Jay Lifton calls the nuts fixation of medicine..

"Yeah, I guess motorized came them would be the first thing that did go that you were part of in the and movies that where it was beyond that early partisan extra in your dad's movie. But I want to ask you about rooting because he's probably the most influential person in film, TV and theatre who your average person at home has not heard of. And I wonder if you can explain from now having gotten to know where with him just can you pinpoint what makes him so special. Yeah. Well, I think the thing that's I honestly it's hard to even describe. But I think with respect to theater Scott sort of like a freelance artistic director in that. He has an idea he can get it done. He can he has all the resources. Nobody doubts him or screw. Nobody's gonna doubt doubt him has his track record. But I think he has just really great taste and a passion for his work that is simply unparalleled like everybody, I speak to work with him says that he watches interview with Chris rock that says Scott Rudin, he said Scott Rudin got meat to function at a rate that I've never I'd never thought was possible. Pushed me to a place that I didn't think was possible. And it's because he he really lives for what he does. And he surrounds himself by people who feel the same. And and when those people come together, it's really a crucible for I guess, really great art. I don't know. So when he was at that addition for SRI loud, you didn't get it. But did he make a point of saying to you, look, I really yeah. He's he then like hooked me up with a bunch of theater tickets, and sort of I really felt like he took me under his wing. In a way and was like whenever I came. In addition with him. He he was there and was so supportive and even one time he let me sit in on a like a business meeting of of his that he was in development for some project, and I got to sit in on just listen to them riff creatively. And I just felt like whenever he was working on something. And there was a part for me these very generous. And and was really like believed in now and to have his support at that age. I was like, I don't know. I I really felt like I was something. And so that age would have been let's let's do the math. You were born in which again ninety six ninety six and moon rise came out in two thousand twelve that we filmed that in two thousand and ten so you were fourteen I was yeah. And now for the first time having a semi substantial part in a movie like something to do as opposed to of small bit-part. What was that experience? Like because I think people sometimes forget that screen acting is such a different beast than theater acting. I think I don't know. Maybe you can maybe you don't feel that way. Yeah. I think what was tricky about the first few projects for me is I really got really scared on camera. And I started to feel like what's dangerous about fantasies is that when they don't go as I want them to go. They become kind of nightmares in a way. And I always felt like with film that I was so excited at these projects. And then that I would I was somehow disappointing the people was working with. And then it was like it was as if I'd been given access to like go do Hogwarts, but all the people that I dreamed of getting to spend my time.
