“The cameras have gotten better, but it’s still the eye that frames it just right.”

Just a few of the points you’ll learn in this episode:

  • The importance of being close to the action, even if it’s not your fight. (Involvement with local associations, networking events)
  • What newcomers do to get noticed

“I don’t see, at least hopefully not in my lifetime, where the robots take over everything. It’ll still be the human character continuing to evolve…the communications process.”
