Manage episode 274653751 series 2611803
Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Alan J. Levi began his filmmaking career at age 15 when he produced and directed a half-hour 16mm black-and-white comedy entitled "Keep Your Spirits High" while a sophomore in high school. Finding no one who would hire this aspiring director, he organized his own company, "Petite Productions," which was financed entirely by his fellow schoolmates, and with a grand total of $256 in operating costs, he began his career as a Director/Producer.
Since those humble beginnings, Alan has directed over 350 hours of prime-time network television over the past nearly 30 years. This informal interview is a living lesson on how to build an incredible career as a Hollywood Television Director.
