THANK YOU David Wollock for the introduction/presentation of the company!
My professor invited me to a class trip (even though I’m not in his class) because I asked him to include me after last semester was over.
My professor, Steven Hirohama is one of the best professors I’ve ever had. His networks are pretty rad too, so I definitely didn’t want to miss out on any of his outings.
He has friends from everywhere and we get to experience and learn about the business.
Unfortunately, I’m not taking a film class this semester.
Yesterday was a rare opportunity. We got to visit Zodiak in Santa Monica and hear about the company.
Zodiak is a production company, kind of like Electus, who I worked with for #KTOWN season 1 & 2.
Hearing David and his team talk clarified what I wanted to do for my career after I graduate college.
Although I already knew everything they were saying because I went through it as a talent not a producer, it was still educational.
They talked about sizzle reels, pitching, ideas, scripts and so on. We even did an exercise at the end where each group came up with an idea for a reality show for the intended network. My group chose E! and he loved my idea.
Not to be narcissistic, but I gave him my life story. He had no idea of course. I know there’s a reality show out there for me one day, or I’ll just have to finish my book sooner to get attention.
I wish I could’ve stayed longer but I had a prior dinner reservation so had to jet before being able to ‘pitch’ our show.
The company even bought us dinner, granted it was pizza and I didn’t have any, it was a very kind gesture.
It looked amazing, my mouth was watering as I watched everyone else eat.
