Stop, Look and Listen become key factors of my discussion with Garvin Burke, CEO of The Film Production Academy. This was a reflective piece in which the two of us explored key issues that we had discovered through our interviews, now nearly 130 episodes. We recognised the gulf between what the filmmakers want and what the investors want and pondered on how best to bring these two sides together. What motivates each side determines how successful their journeys are. Yet, no matter whether the filmmakers were journeying 30 years ago or today, similar problems arise. Preparation is a key factor and knowing who your audience is. Everyone, including ourselves, struggles with these issues. As Garvin and I reflect, we also conclude that we are where we are meant to be. And so are you, especially if you find yourself listening to our show. We all tend to put ourselves down but often it is what is in front of us that we don't see. So, before going any further it is essential to Stop, Look and Listen.
