We are very excited to bring you a special LP interview with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Aside from Joe's well-known work as a Golden Globe-nominated, Emmy-award-winning actor in films like 500 Days of Summer, Inception, and Looper, Joe is also the founder of HITRECORD, a startup which brings creative collaborators together across film, music, books, and more.

Ben sat down with Joe to discuss:

  • The creator economy’s focus on the finished product vs. the creative process, and how he thinks about this at HITRECORD
  • The state of the film and TV industry today, amidst the shift to streaming platforms and tech companies as primary distribution channels
  • What it has been like on set playing Travis Kalanick in Showtime’s upcoming “Super Pumped”

Thanks to our good friends at Fika Ventures for setting this conversation up!
