What can we learn from (Oscar nominated screenwriter) Sylvester Stallone? 40 minute masterclass…

It’s easy to write off Sylvester Stallone as an action movie star playing one dimensional characters.

But that would be a mistake.

In his long career he has won BAFTA and Oscar nominations for screenwriting, written and directed a diverse range of movies, and delivered staggering commercial successes.

In this interview, he shows that he is significantly more interesting than just an ageing action movie star… I loved his quote about his fear when writing, and ‘’expect to fail, but know its not a permanent state…’

Great stuff!

Onwards and upwards!

    It’s easy to knock someone who is commercially successful, it’s much harder actually being commercially successful!

    I have always felt that too Rod, and I have been stunned at how many times I have heard other filmmakers deride commercial work as though the concept is a dirty idea. So so sad.
