Why the heck would we write a book?

When we first started making movies together, we were broke college kids with no connections or experience. Fast forward five years, and we were casting a million dollar movie with well-known Hollywood stars.

We wrote The Break In to share all the most valuable lessons (and hilarious stories) from our experience that will help you launch your own career.
