I would love to be a guest on RFB because I am a foreigner who moved from Europe to USA, I love Brooklyn and I have a story to share. I am a Czech woman who holds 3 law degrees and spent over a decade working as a lawyer but then decided to leave a big corporate job to follow her teenage dreams.
Now it has been a little over 2 years, season 1 of my quirky little sitcom “Whisper Naked Shadow” has won in a couple of small festivals and will be screened on 3 continents this summer at various festivals that focus on indie episodic content, and at the end of August we start shooting season 2. And it’s been one exciting albeit very stressful journey.
How different is my life as a screenwriter/director of a low budget, low tech Czech-American series from what it was when I was a Chief Privacy Officer for a big multinational company? What can I say to those who dream about big changes, changes that bring about uncertainty and new types of stress? What is it like to work with a team of people from 5 different countries, some of whom I hired off of Instagram? Does creating and story telling bring me the happiness I expected? And why do I feel more vulnerable now that I am a creator than it ever was when I was a lawyer?
Lets find out on your show.
