Voyage Office Hours

A few weeks ago we held our first community office hours.  An opportunity for members of the film community – both the aces and the aspirers – to comingle with each other, some working Producers and Voyage Staff.

And we filmed an interesting talk with Elizabeth Kushman (former VP Development & Production – Dimension Films), and Kelly Hayes (Director of Development – Walt Becker Company) in which they spoke about their experiences breaking down Hollywood’s iron doors, and the current and ever-changing landscape of media as it exists today, and their heartbreaks and triumphs along the carved path.

So we invite you to take a peek.  You’ll gain some interesting insights into how to choose the right project to develop, how to avoid many of the common (and uncommon) pitfalls writers & directors fall into when chasing after that golden project, how to get into the “tribal” mindset and how working as part of a community will help you take your project to that next level you’re looking to reach.


P.S. Stay tuned for our next office hours get-together, which will be taking place in February.

  2. Thank you, Nat. I enjoyed the impromptu sharing. All answers, examples, and explanations reassured me in maintaining a trusting openness to the process. I too have been through the high of “making it” and the heartache of a failure I was so sure would succeed. I appreciate your coming up with ways of sharing with us your side of the process.
