Bonsai Creative, MAKE IT, Adam Schartoff, Filmwax, Filmmaker, Film

We have a conversation with Filmwax Radio and Filmwax TV host Adam Schartoff. We talk about how to keep your cool when you're working with colleagues that are more notable than you, how his career shifted from working at Sony Music to podcasting and film, when and why to start a podcast and the best use of $5K in a film marketing budget. Enjoy!
