Joseph Gordon-Levitt



Joseph Gordon-Levitt took a couple hours out of his busy schedule in March 2007 to speak with New York Film Academy students.

To a packed screening room, Gordon-Levitt covered topics ranging from his experiences in independent vs. studio filmmaking and his training as an actor, all the way through to choosing scripts, the realities of making money in the business, and staying humble.

NYFA screened clips from films Brick and Mysterious Skin, as well as the trailer for The Lookout. Also screened was a sneak-peek clip from his website “Pictures of *ssholes.”
