Editor Julian Smirke is convinced that he ended up being an assistant and then associate editor on Star Wars: The Force Awakens because of sheer luck and nothing more. But I don’t believe in luck. I believe that luck should be redefined as “when hard work meets opportunity.”
In this episode Julian and I talk all about his path from starving and unemployed artist to working on the largest film franchise in cinema history. I break down every step of his journey and show you how anyone can take a similar path if they are willing to put in the work.
