I’m excited to announce a good friend of mine, Bradley Gallo, who’s going to start doing a monthly column called Dear Bradley right here on Stage 32. Bradley is an award-winning producer who’s most recent film, Them That Follow (produced with Gerard Butler and featuring Oscar winner Olivia Colman), just sold at Sundance 2019.
So if you like what you see and you've got a question that you want answered, drop it in the comments below or PM Bradley on Instagram @Bradley_Gallo with your burning question, and he’ll answer it in his vlog the following month.
Enjoy the video!
Over the years, I've been inundated with questions from up and coming filmmakers from around the world at film festivals, conferences, or just on the street. Sometimes I feel bad that I don’t always have time to answer them all. So I decided to start the Dear Bradley Vlog. And who better to partner with for the vlog than Stage 32, the premiere education platform for film and television content makers!
So please, submit your questions to me in the comments below or via Instagram @Bradley_Gallo. Be very specific and I will personally answer your question the best I can.
Some answers will come in long form and others in a lightening round (multiple questions with 15 second answers). Some of you will have the same question and so we will combine those. So ask, ask, ask away!
In the meantime, check out the questions below...and the video below those where I answer a handful of questions from members in the lounges right here on Stage 32.
