Indie Movie Mastery with Special Guest Dominik Rausch

In this pilot episode I talk with one of my very best friends, award-winning producer and director, Dominik Rausch.

Dominik and I came up together in the business and were both pioneers in different aspects of the digital revolution (me being the first to produce a narrative feature for Hulu as well as being one of the first to release in theaters and on iTunes at the same time and Dominik being the producer of one of the most successful branded entertainment series of all time.) and we have a lot of insight on what it takes to make those breakthroughs in Hollywood and what it takes to really hone in on the career you want to have.

Listen Here 

Dominik grew up in a little village in Germany, where he was trained as a classical pianist and fell in love with creative storytelling. In 2007, Dominik made the moved to Los Angeles to tell stories that have the power to reinvigorate our inner child and remind us of long-forgotten dreams.

 

He has been called a “Cynical Dreamer,” because while he often process daily life with a dose of sarcasm, he approaches life on screen with a sense of wonder and conviction in the belief that, "ultimately, we can all find beauty and love."
