As a burgeoning content creator and storyteller, I was elated to be selected as one of the fortunate few to take part in HBO’s on-set training program on the award-winning show, VEEP. Read the Washington Post article about the HBO initiative: http://wpo.st/iBaK1.
To say that those couple of weeks were some of the most exciting, intense, educational, scary (in a good way), and insightful of my life would still be an understatement. It was as close as I think I will get to a crash course on how the production world works.
HBO is taking some aggressive steps to bring new, diverse voices to the film/tv industry. I’m grateful to have been a part of this wonderful program.
