017 – Christine Conradt Pt.1

 

 

In this week’s episode, I had the great fortune of talking with writer/director/producer Christine Conradt. She’s got sixty IMDb credits to her name and she shows no signs of slowing down. Christine is an amazing person and talks about opting for film school over law school, going further in debt as opposed to running her own YMCA, and doing it all successfully without an agent.

One thing I’d like to point out is that this particular guest is an example of relationships paying off. Previous guest Mark Sanderson was kind enough to make this introduction for me and Christine was open enough to accept the offer. All I had done was start a podcast with a sincere intention and hard work, and luck+opportunity took care of the rest. Which is essentially the core of almost all success stories I’ve heard about in the profession of screenwriting and movie making.

Christine provides a lot of important insights for which you should take the time to listen. Not only that, she’s funny too. Oh…and she sings Kumbaya.

    Lots of inspiring women references during pt. 2 — including you, Christine! I attended a recent 2-page GLAWS event and really appreciated the feedback you and the other panel guests were dishing out.

  • Justin

    Great podcast, man! Great guest too.

  • Angie

    Great interview.

    I always say talent wins out. Christine was published while still in High School, proving she could write. Her subsequent success came with preparation and unfailing energy. A true inspiration for anyone who wants to make a living as a writer, producer or director.

    Appreciated her enthusiasm and willingness to share tips, especially that writers must depend more on themselves than on an agent or manager. Thanks to both Mike and Christine.
