Today I am joined by an incredible filmmaker who I met through Fast Forward Production, my podcast production company, Izzy Stevens from OCCUPATION and PUBERTY BLUES. She is one of the most dynamic women in the film industry today and I just knew that she would have tons of great information to share with you all. Izzy is an LA based Australian-American Actor, Writer, Producer, Award-Winning Director, and Founder/CEO of Indie Spunk where she is a coach and mentor for fellow creatives. She shares her journey in the industry after getting early success right out of school, the honest answer to whether actors should make their own work, the steps you should take when you have an idea or script, and the importance of pitching yourself. As a multi-hyphenate with tons going on, I also ask Izzy about her self-care routine and how she takes care of herself through it all.
