But how did they start? Hear these men and women discuss how they achieved and maintained success in a highly competitive field.

Praise for Azazel Jacobs’ work:
“Azazel Jacobs’ The Lovers is that rare thing: a serious romantic comedy with farcical elements that never puts a foot wrong.” – The Wrap
“Doll & Em is therefore a pleasant surprise…The story is framed by the outsize absurdities of show business, but Doll & Em is a character study in miniature.” – The New York Times
“Azazel Jacobs’ Terri works, not least because, against expectation, it is a beautiful movie to look at, with an enchanted sense of place.” – The New Yorker
“Cluttered with beautiful junk and crammed to the rafters with feeling, Momma’s Man is a touchingly true film, part weepie, part comedy, about the agonies of navigating that slippery slope called adulthood.” – The New York Times
