Hello, Indie Creatives!

In this week's episode, we have a conversation with the actor, director, and writer, Alan Powell. We talk about not being afraid to give up the good to go for the great, writing screenplays for a specific audience, and the concept of "effortless" structure in film, and his Netflix film, 'A Week Away.'
