Film Courage: I would imagine you receive emails everyday from people asking for career advice. Can you tell from some of the emails those who really want help and those you may not be able to help?
Bill Duke, Actor, Director, Producer, Author: Yes. There are people who somehow they think something is going to be given to them and there are other people who they talk to you for guidance about how they can get it themselves.
The people who ask for guidance of how they can get it for themselves I’m interested in them because they are not asking me to do it for them. They’re saying You have experience and I’m willing to listen to you so I don’t make crazy mistakes and so those people I relate to because somebody did that for me.
People who come out and they just want (as you so eloquently spoke before) notoriety they’re not serious about this industry, not serious about being a great actor or a great writer, great producer, great director. They just want to be seen and have people know who they are. I don’t take them seriously.
