Everything I Wish I Knew About Hollywood When I Started – Joe Wilson [FULL INTERVIEW]

Film Courage: Joe, are you from LA?

Joe Wilson, Screenwriter/Filmmaker/Author: I am not. I’m originally from Poughkeepsie, New York-ish area and then I lived in Boston for 13 years and then got a call from a production company out here who saw a newspaper review of a show I did in Boston and that sort of got the ball rolling to Come out and hey, let’s make money out here as opposed to really never making money in Boston ever, like breaking even was the goal for those shows.

Film Courage: May I ask what year this was?

Joe: We moved here in ’97…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
