Three years ago I was living a unfulfilling life as a Hollywood screenwriter. I had a nice house near the beach. I met and worked with some of my greatest creative heroes. Ben Stiller. George Lucas. Todd Phillips. Harvey Weinstein. But something was missing. I had achieved my dreams and yet I was unsatisfied.
When I got an offer to work with Michael Fertik, I turned it down. It seems comical, I know, but I had no idea who he was. But Michael isn’t the type to take no for an answer — just like you.
Some might speculate that it was the amount of money he offered me that changed my mind, but I can tell you it was more than the money. It was the possibility.
And not just of even greater amounts of money. It was the possibility of understanding myself and why I was so fixated on money. What happened after I agreed to work with Michael can only be described as a gift. Or better yet the gift.
With two award-winning films and a television show in development, Michael’s gift to me, I knew I needed to pay that reward forward. To let everyone who was struggling like I was in on the secret. So I got Michael to agree to create Femtofilm.com, our gift to you.
