In this episode we chat it up with Luke Guidici, screenwriter and generator of really strange story concepts.

He's worked in LA as an extra, grip, PA, camera operator, AD, producer, editor, falconer, writer and director. In our interview he lets loose with some steps to break you out of your funk and into writing stories NOW, plus some techniques that even some larger movies fall short on that you should focus on like "save the cat" and "show, don't tell" (for GOD'S sake, do the latter one).

Mae was bartending and raising a daughter in Atlanta when a producer approached her after seeing her music mashup projects that she continued to work on in her spare time.

Self-taught and self-propelled, after seeing a trailer for Zack Snyder's 300 she immediately vowed to become an editor.

She's a delightful and talented person to begin with but she's also a real-life example of what you should do if you're passionate about your work but have no doors open to you to the industry.
