Chris BallMy advice, to those that would like to pursue either writing or a career in production, is to always be networking, whether in college (with other writers or students interested in film) or with companies you can contact and get in touch with from the East Coast. Make a short film in Boone. Write and read every day. DO NOT QUIT."
