Podcast Ep. 21 – Day Job to Dream Job: A Writer-Producer’s Mid-Career Transformation

maralesemann

After many years in the banking industry, Mara Lesemann took an abrupt left turn to become a screenwriter and film producer. She’d never written creatively before, and had had no previous experience in the film industry. Now she’s got a feature film under her belt (you can watch it on Amazon or iTunes), and another in production.

So how DOES one suddenly go from a decades-long financial services career to a brand new life as an east coast mini-mogul?

Join me for a conversation with Mara Lesemann, writer and producer of SURVIVING FAMILY and the upcoming DETOURS.

Lots of great nuggets in this one, including:

  • Finding the courage (and money) to do what you love.
  • Working with distributors and aggregators.
  • Gaming the theatrical release system.
  • Recruiting talent with major motion picture experience.
  • Handling publicity on a shoestring budget.

…and SO much more.
