Interview with Sean Johnson and  Sydnee Simone

I got HACKED! Listen to my comments following the interview with Sean Johnson Jr and Sydnee Simone and I'll tell you how I rescued 4 YEARS of podcast episodes after some low life hacked my site and my web host closed me down!

Screenwriting Workshop WITH New York Film Academy Top Graduate SEAN JOHNSON JR

Writer of "Down By The River," Sean Johnson will be hosting his 2nd annual Screenwriting Workshop in Houston, Tx on January 16th, 2016.

The top graduate of New York Film Academic will be sharing the secrets to help you turn your idea into a feature length screenplay. 99.9% of notable screenwriters use this same technique from what we like to call the "Beat Sheet."

He will teach you how to finish your story from beginning to end before you even type the first letter of your script! You can reserve your seat now!

Jason Tyler Sean Johnson's screenwriting class teaches how to know your screenplay from the beginning to end before you even type the first letter of your title page! He truly teaches you how to master the screenplay Nzinga Rideaux

Sean Johnson's Screenwriting Classes are a must for beginners. As an aspiring screenwriter I thoroughly enjoyed the class and his one on one coaching style. I am now in the process of completing my first screenplay for review. This would not have happened if I had not taken this class.

My guests for this episode of Actors Talk are filmmakers Sean Johnson  and Sydnee Simone. Sean is one of the Exec. Producers and Syndee is the director and one of the lead actors in a new indie film called Pastor's Daughters.

In this episode I spent a few minutes with Sean and Sydnee exploring some of the challenges of producing in the low budget indie market, in the faith-based niche and also to some extent, for an African American target audience.

​Pastor's Daughters was the first feature film that Ms. Simone has directed but as you'll hear in the interview, she was well prepared following a long season of training behind the scenes from every position from PA to Unit Production Manager prior to accepting this directing assignment.

​For those of you who are long-time Actors Talk listeners and readers, you'll remember Sean from previous episodes. He first appeared on Actors Talk in Episode 14 to talk about his first feature film, DOWN BY THE RIVER and then again in Episode 41 to talk about another film he produced called WALK BY FAITH.

I love having Sean on Actors Talk because he is actually out in the marketplace making movies. And as you'll hear his movies ARE getting distribution deals. ​
