In Episode 194, Trev and AJ share about their “slow week” support groups, and respond to a listener question about how to tackle writing a feature film screenplay (see below / show notes for a list!). Then Trev sits down for Part 2 with actor Doug Jones (Hell Boy, Falling Skies, Pan’s Labyrinth) to chat about how he built and refined his specificity through student films and indie projects, how he used that specificity to book a top commercial agent and blow up the commercial world, and how playing to type, doing good work, and not complaining about it is the surefire path to success in the entertainment industry. Total running time: 1:03:06.
