Inside Acting

Episode 313: Damon Lindelof (Part 2)

June 5, 2018

In Episode 313, Trev and AJ chat about how actors might use some of the recently announced-Apple technology, as well as off their thoughts on how to get started in this industry—while experiencing the experience of overwhelm. Then AJ sits down for Part 2 of his conversation with writer, producer, and show-runner Damon Lindelof (Lost, Prometheus, The Leftovers).

In part 2, Damon shares with us the unique challenges of getting his first few jobs in Los Angeles (there's a "fax machine"... ?). He also shares why ego can sometimes be a good and healthy thing in the industry, and breaks down some of the most potent wisdom he's absorbed and developed from years of meetings, pitches, and work. To wit:

1. Be yourself.
2. Do your research.
3. Be passionate
4. Don’t talk too much.

Consider this interview series a blueprint for how to succeed in show business as a people person. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Total running time: 1:31:33.
