Filmmakers want to present our craft to the world, and that craft is made with a particular vision. Sometimes sticking to this vision means we will lose out on other opportunities.
Comedian and filmmaker Jerrod Carmichael explains why he is willing to take that risk.
In this episode, we talk about…
- Stand-up comedy and how it is an immediate art form
- Developing thick skin from being a stand-up comedian
- Getting the plug pulled on a major project
- How his film, On the Count of Three, melds comedy with darkness and honesty
- Carmichael’s perspective on what a film’s premise should be
- Protecting the main idea of a film—keep the idea intact
- His multiple roles on the set of his film
- The premiere of his film at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival
