Good Reads for the week of April 20, 2015

7 Revelations That Came Out of Harvey Weinstein’s Tribeca Talk (via David Canfield for Indiewire)

The Strange Experience of Having My Memoir Turned Into a Movie (via Stephen Elliott for Vulture)
The Adderall Diaries memoirist talks about a very odd experience that most of us will never have (at least not until Professionally Independent: The SAGindie Story airs on IFC).

How Applying Shark Tank Principles to Your Acting Career Will Make You Successful
(via Jennifer Rudolph for Stage32)
How actors should sell themselves like a product (but not in a creepy casting-couch kind of way).
