    Joe Hardesty is Dead to Me - Just Shoot It 199

    Joe Hardesty is Dead to Me - Just Shoot It 199

    Joe Hardesty has sky rocketed from PA picking up gear at Oren's apartment to the Producer of shows like Dead to Me, American Vandal and No Activity. How did he do it? It definitely has something to do with working with Matt. 
     
    Unpaid Endorsements:
     
    Joe - Starbucks Reserve
     
    Matt - Netflix show "The Circle"
            - "The Marriage Story" score is a great orchestral soundtrack to write to
     
    Oren - "My 600lb Life" 
             - When sending someone notes on their work, start off with what you liked and then gently                 go on with what they should change.
