A packed classroom of Full Sail students was treated to a two-hour conversation with actor William Baldwin on Monday, who stopped by to tour campus with his business partner, producer Warren Kohler. The two took part in a “Pitching in Hollywood” panel moderated by Career Development‘s Jamey Hopper, but the conversation went way beyond that, covering everything from how William got interested in the business, to his body of work as an actor and producer (Backdraft, Flatliners, “Gossip Girl”) and how he feels about the future of the industry. (“Your computer screen is your television now.”)
Afterward, William stuck around to chat and take photos with students. Warren also took part in a virtual “How to Create Your Own Company/Brand” presentation for online students. The two are co-principals and founders of the production company Beyond Comprehension LLC/Wide Spirit Productions LLC. They’re currently developing several film and television projects.
