Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeremy Weinstein.
Jeremy, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Los Angeles is a long way from New York and Chicago where longtime collaborators, my siblings, live. Ever since our parents gave us a video camera, we made very serious short films, often where my sister, Anna, would play Simba from “The Lion King” or Jane Bond, the otherwise unproduced tales of a 4-year-old female James Bond, and my brother, Aaron, would play Scar from “The Lion King”, or Lady Macbeth. Moving to different cities made it difficult to work on projects together, so we started Rescue Dog Films as a way to motivate continued output.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road has been rocky, which is very difficult since all 3 of us are lactose intolerant.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Rescue Dog Films – what should we know?
Rescue Dog Films is our family production company, but it is also a means of supporting non-profits that support animal welfare such as Los Angeles Animal Services, C.A.R.E. (Community Animal Rescue Effort), and Working Dogs for Conservation. A portion of profits and screening fees from our projects are donated to these organizations and that helps motivate us to seek out different opportunities and partnerships.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
