Advice For First Time Directors – Adisa

Film Courage: Can we go back to what steps you took to meet the producer Howard Barish [for Adisa film SKIN IN THE GAME]? What was your initial pitch to him?

Adisa, Writer/Director: Howard Barish was an interesting milestone for me because prior to meeting Howard I had developed and written scripts but remember I am learning about filmmaking, but I am in the mindset I’m trying to raise independent financing. For me that looks like my mother may be giving me $10,000 (if my mother had it) or a friend giving $5,000, just finding money like that. I was led down the wrong path so many times talking to people in Atlanta, talking to a casting director who knew somebody with money in Atlanta and they get excited about the project…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
