How to rapidly test whether you want to produce films by moving to Hollywood and how to plug into the film scene.  How to graduate college in 2.5 years, complete 28 credits per semester, and work 3 part-time jobs at the same time.  Spencer’s “tweetable” advice: “When is a best time to plant a tree? Yesterday. When is the second best time to plant a tree? Today.”
