THE BREAK - IN EPISODE 12 Phil Hawkins vs Steven Spielberg
4 days ago
It's a really informative (i.e. really long) one this week as we talk to british film director Phil Hawkins who's already made five features and he's only 31. Phil's story is fascinating as he got a break super early in his career on a reality TV show and has so much to share about how the next ten years played out. He was handpicked by Spielberg so that should tell you something. It sucks doing interviews on Skype but it's the only way we can do it at the moment...
As always you can find Robin on Twitter as @DirSchmidt, Simon's there as @IAMSIMONWAN, Phil's on there as @philmblog so please do hit us up if you fancy it.
