Coffee & Content - Comedy Actress Roundtable & The Art of Creativity with Taika Waititi

Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

Happy Sunday Creative Army!

I hope you are having an epic and productive 2020 so far. I've got my freshly brewed coffee and some great content for you today. Let's do this. 

First off, let's check in with our friends at The Hollywood Reporter. As you are likely familiar, THR presents amazing roundtable discussions featuring industry titans from all fields in entertainment. Today, let's see what some of the leading ladies of television's biggest comedies have to say. You will hear from none other than Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Debra Messing (Will & Grace), Molly Shannon (Divorce), Alison Brie (Glow), Drew Barrymore (Santa Clarita Diet), and more!

Next up, let's talk about creativity. The entertainment industry is a vast playground of creative opportunities and collaborations. In this TEDx talk, writer, director, and actor Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit, Thor: Ragnarok, What We Do in the Shadows) talks about the creative process. Something to note - this video is a decade old, made before any of Taika's major blockbuster successes. Let this be your reminder that you are pursuing a long-term career in entertainment. Success is never as "overnight" as it is often glamorized to be in this industry. So get out there and do the work!
