Episode 187 - Lawyering and Film with Adam Smestad

Mind Gap

This week, Justin and Doug are joined by the mighty commercial litigator, director, writer, and actor, Adam Smestad. The three nerds talk about creating the web series, Chicago HR, moving from personal injury lawyering to commercial litigation lawyering, what it’s like playing a small role on a TV show, what it must be like to prepare for a romantic scene in TV and film, and the recent debate over whether a movie should be a theatrical release in order to be considered for an Oscar. Things are wrapped up with a throw-down featuring personal injury lawyers vs. commercial litigators.   Need a practical answer to a question?
