Get Your JOY In The Morning! LLC, a Media Company, had the pleasure of being in attendance at the National Geographic presents An Evening with Brian Grazer (Academy Award, Golden Globe, Emmy, and Grammy Award-Winning Producer) moderated by Editor-In-Chief Susan Goldberg of "National Geographic Magazine." Brian Grazer is also a New York Times Best Selling Author of the book, "The Art of Human Connection." Brian spoke of honest conversations in Hollywood and even his own mistakes of not truly connecting with those in the room when in the development stage of filmmaking. In the interview Susan conducted, Brian expressed how a car ride and sudden name drop on radio, Old Dirty Bastard, led to him meeting Wu-Tang Clan and eventually doing "Wu-Tang: An American Saga" on Hulu. His original "curiosity" of East Coast hip-hop that led to befriending Old Dirty Bastard which also led him to meeting Eminem and eventually creating "8 Mile." It was human connection that led him from "8 Mile" to then meeting Jay-Z and creating "Made in America." He spoke of the complex human connection that really sold the idea of the story about a man working through his mental disability, which we know as, "A Beautiful Mind." From story to story, film to film and television show to television show it is human connection. No matter how you add it up, it is human connection that we all long for and it is the process of exploring the human connection that sells in Hollywood.
