Niles Goodsite : Finding Success in the Film and Television Industry

Niles Goodsite, a veteran in the film and television industry, knows that success can take different shapes and forms, but there are a few secrets to success that the experts will tell those who want to be successful in showbiz, such as the following:

• It’s not necessary that you go to film school to become successful in the industry. While it certainly may help provide a solid foundation, the art of storytelling comes naturally to many of those in the field. In plenty of cases, it’s more a question of networking and experience rather than education, especially if you have a good demo reel to show potential employers.

• Focus on collaboration. Trying to be a one-man show, attempting to write and direct everything on your own, may not go as well as collaborating with a trusted colleague who may be more talented in areas that you aren’t. Having multiple people involved with the same project will ensure that the best possible version of your production will be manifested.

• It isn’t necessary to live in Hollywood to become successful. With so many opportunities to expose our work to the masses via social media, it’s entirely possible to become famous without ever stepping foot in a large metropolis.
