Respect The Process is a filmmaking podcast focused on directing commercials.

Nov 28, 2016

Stand-up comedian Maz Jobrani tells us how he brought his character Jimmy Vestvood to the big screen. Maz co-wrote, produced and stars in his hilarious film "Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero", and took it to theaters everywhere. We chat about how the limitations of a small budget can fuel creative solutions, as well as shaping one's own destiny.

Maz also offers an insightful tour of Iran's colorful history, which I find fascinating. Buy "Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero" today and enjoy. It's all laughs. Shout out to Jonathan Kesselman, the film's director, for the hook up.
