I should probably just call this series the “Ron Dawson Reunion Series.” Like last week, this episode re-unites me with an old friend, Dayna North, who was script supervisor for a short film I wrote/directed way back “in the day.” Today Dayna is a successful television writer and co-executive producer on the ABC Family drama “Lincoln Heights.” After Dayna and I have a good time reminiscing about the good ol’ days (dropping names of some famous actors I had the opportunity to NOT choose to be in my film), she gets down and dirty sharing informational about: the importance of film school; writing for television; the power of writers in TV vs. film; the writers’ strike; Oscar politics; and much, much more. This is a terrific insider’s look at tinsel town you won’t want to miss.
