    From Hollywood to Wall Street to Professor to Founder, Dave Basulto

    From Hollywood to Wall Street to Professor to Founder, Dave Basulto

    This week's guest is Dave Basulto, the founder of iOgrapher, Mobile Video Expert and Coach.

    Dave’s passion is helping both amateur and professional video creators produce quality films using nothing more than their smartphone or tablet.

    The iOgrapher Filmmaking Case, lets anyone turn their mobile device into an on-the-go video studio! It is now sold in over 19 countries, used by schools, businesses, and marketers all over the world, and even Hollywood with Steven Spielberg, and Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona owning one!

    After working as an extra in many movies and tv shows like Cheers and Mad About You, I eventually earned my Screen Actors Guild card and continued onto producing feature films, such as Love and Action in Chicago.

    The next natural step in my film career was directing. I purchased a camcorder, found a script, and shot my first film. It took 10 days and cost $10,000. Eventually, I sold the film to Blockbuster in the USA and to many foreign countries.

    You guys are in for a treat with this episode!

    PTDB: It's time to have helpful conversations about Taboo topics!

    SPECIAL EPISODE: Recorded on World Suicide Prevention Day..

    Nobody likes having conversations about sad or taboo topics but if there’s anything these last 6 months have taught me....

    It’s that having the sometimes tough conversations are truly the only way we will make change happen and in this case bring those feeling alone or hopeless into the light to remind them the world is better with them in it!

    If you need help, please don’t hesitate to visit SuicidePreventionLifeline.org.

    Better days lie ahead, You Are Not Alone!

    “In the 1950s, you never told anybody you had cancer,” she says. “Many problems have gone through this, and we’ve made progress on others. Issues with the mind, and the brain, and personal relationships are the last frontier. They’re the last thing we need to learn how to talk about.”
