236 - Joseph Gordon-Levitt and The Magic of Just Hitting Record

HOLY GOODNESS WE HAVE JGL ON THE SHOW TODAY!!! AAAAHH!!!

I have been a Joseph Gordon-Levitt super fan for well over a decade.

I first started following Joe's career back in high school when I discovered his first major dramatic role in the film 'Manic' and followed him as he went on to star in Rian Johnson's first film 'Brick'.

It's been incredible as a fan to watch him rise from those indie films to prominent roles in blockbusters such as Looper, Inception and Batman The Dark Knight Rises.

In this special interview episode, we dive deep into Joe's creative practice, what lead to his biggest breakthrough and ultimately the lesson that allowed him to reinvent his career from child actor to a-list movie star.

AND

This episode marks the start of our collaboration with Joe's collaboration platform 'HitRECord'.
