We’re shifting gears here at the Codex and trying something new. As a curious person, I’ve always wondered what directing a movie is really like. And I was lucky enough to meet someone who has not only directed a film, but was willing to chat with me at length about the process: actress, director and fellow podcaster Mandy Fabian. But what began as a simple chat became a much more elaborate conversation about the Business of Show, acting, agents, New York vs. Los Angeles and more. So join me as I learn about the ins and outs of the business from someone who has worked their way up through the ranks to get to the director’s chair.
