During week 6 I interviewed Connor Bailey of Couch Potato fame. Connor is a freshman currently majoring in Film Production. As I already knew from prior classes, Connor has a production company with several friends living in the area, with their current project being the Couch-Potato-funded Martin Scorsese movie. In addition to the current project, Connor has prior experience with film production such as when he made a music video in high school that got over 25,000 hits on YouTube. Connor mentioned being interested in making club-baseball scouting videos, something that interested me greatly as a baseball fan in general, and a scouting/analytics fan in particular. Ideally, Connor sees himself moving to the LA-area full-time, as opposed to making the current commute from his hometown San Diego, and hopefully landing a gig as a director or producer. Artistically, Connor seems to be ahead of the curve when compared to others I have interviewed considering his already extensive film production and editing experience, in addition to his OBVIOUSLY good taste in movies (Scorsese).
