Storytelling: Hilliard Guess Has Game, Shares Game


Hilliard Guess knows his way around a microphone. And a podcast. And a writers room. And a screenplay. And a film set. And a stage. So, where do you even start the interview? We start at the relationships he cultivated with the local skinheads (Neo-Nazi and traditional) growing up in the ‘hood, as a gay, black kid in the 80s Mod/Rudeboy/Punk Scene. From there, we wind our way into the writers room with a torrent of gold wisdom on how to navigate that environment. Our belated arrival at the fishbowl gives us solid three-act structure with the pulls Baby Writers, Autobiographies and Death.
