He's an accomplished film producer, the president of a global film production and consulting company, and an expert on the planning, budgeting and execution of both international and domestic filming. On the next Cinematic Immunity, Billy Badalato, Jr., tells us his story, and shares so much sage advice for finding success in the entertainment industry ("Your first day of work is really your second job interview.") that we couldn't fit it all into just one episode. Yes, it's another Cinematic Immunity two-parter - but with thirty years of working in the film industry, Badalato, Jr., had so many valuable lessons to share with our listeners, that we just couldn't leave any of them out. 

Hear Billy Badalato, Jr., school us on the ins and outs of international and domestic film consulting, the logistics of Navy fighter-jet refueling, and some of the difficulties of using trains, planes and boats in your movie. We'll discuss what happens when you go to shoot in the middle of nowhere, and how to climb the showbiz ladder from personal assistant to president of a global production and consulting company. Learn all that and more, on the next episode of the Cinematic Immunity podcast, this Tuesday
