We’ve all gotten “stuck” before — in a pattern of doing the same things over and over again, hoping for better results. But you have the power to reshape your process! Writer-Director Kat Candler (13 Reasons Why, Sorry for Your Loss, Hellion) wants to help you stop spinning your wheels and start making headway.
In this edition of 30-Minute Mentor, we’ll discuss how to take your writing and directing career to the next level. Plus, live questions from a few creators in the throes of their own projects.
RSVP to join the livestream.
