Filmmaker, author, actor and podcaster Scott McMahon has spent the past 20 years working professionally in the areas of interactive gaming, film, TV, video production, and web media creation.
For nearly 12 years he supervised the Cinematic Department for Sony PlayStation and was fortunate enough to get a chance to play in that huge sandbox, working with some of the world's best animators, technicians, and visual effects artists.
Upon leaving PlayStation ...The economy was tanking, people were losing their jobs, and he did what any genius would do...Go to Hollywood and make an independent film!
His film, called DO-OVER, came close to getting made, but there are tons films that "almost" get made in Hollywood. Scott's film was just another one of those sad tales that was not meant to be ...
But from that experience he began searching for a way to make films without the permission of so many gate keepers and build a sustainable living from this notion.
This is how Scott's podcast was born and what he shares with me in episode #15. Scott is a very passionate educator and a true wealth of knowledge and experience. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed learning form Scott!
