Welcome to the Gunnison Group Podcast!
The Gunnison Group Podcast is dedicated to everybody in Hollywood just starting out. Our efforts are focused on getting our listeners in on the conversation, and to share our experiences, trials and tribulations trying to get off the ground in Film and Creative Media.
We know Hollywood is a mess. We are all aware there are parties, media events and discussions behind closed doors happening across the entire industry we aren't invited to. We will be the best party crashers we can be. Gunnison Group tries to open these closed doors, even just a little bit. Success for us is measured by an entertained audience that feels a little more like an insider when the episode wraps.
Yes, we talk over each other, and yes, we crack each other up. That's why we went with the Podcast format. Passionate conversation is frequently a train wreck. The Gunnison Group is here to stir things up.
Gunnison Galaxy is based on a single defining concept: creativity should be fostered.
All too often the talents of individuals are lost due to lack of access to privately held knowledge. This knowledge may be the process for bringing an idea to market, or how to navigate the studio system.
We facilitate collaboration between top talent across the entertainment industry, sharing creative energy and technical know-how. Through these partnerships, Gunnison Galaxy will form the next generation of creative pipelines.
Our responsibility is to build a knowledge base with actors, writers, musicians, technicians and producers. And establish a elite platform for sharing media and ideas with like-minded individuals. We welcome participation, and encourage inclusion.
Our Podcasters include professionals spanning Entertainment, Government and Technical Industries.
