You Don’t Have To Live In LA To Start Your Hollywood Career – Jeremy Foley

Film Courage: Jeremy, you say making it in Hollywood is 25% talent and 75% who you know?

Jeremy Foley, Filmmaker/Actor/ScreenwriterHmm, I would say making it in Hollywood…I would say it’s probably more who you know than talent? I would put it close to like 85% who you know, 15[%] talent.

I think a lot of people have talent…and actually there is one thing that I would throw into the mix on that and I would say it’s perseverance. I would really say perseverance. Speaking for me and speaking for a lot of people I know, it’s really a long game. I can really be years. I know there’s a lot of people who come and say I’m going to try this for a year and see what happens and unfortunately I just don’t think that’s realistic…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
