My special guest this time is Dean Bushala. He is a commercial and television Producer, Director and Cinematographer. He has directed series for National Geographic, History and Discovery Channel. He started his career designing and branding television networks in Europe. Listen in as Dean and I cover a lot of ground in our 1-hour fun and insightful chat.
Dean explains how and why he got attracted from an early age to film. He shares some funny and interesting anecdotal stories including some of the risks in achieving TV shows that can be popular in both the US domestic market and also language dubbed, and remain successful in other countries. Dean talks about diversity and quality of the people he gets to work with and shares some advice for younger people wishing to get deeper into the film industry. Honestly, 1-hour was not long enough but it was sure real quality time spent...
I'm rounding off these show notes with direct text from Deans website because I want to highlight this exceptionally talented, and I sense, humble individual...and below is just the first paragraph!
Dean is an Emmy-winning Producer and Director of Photography. His documentary films and commercial work have taken him to some of the world's most remote locations, from several hundred miles out onto the frozen Arctic Sea, to floating through the Amazon jungle on a man-made raft, to 60 feet under water SCUBA diving with sharks off the coastal reef of Belize.
