The Drop Ep 302: Curiosity for Geniuses

THE DROP EP 302: CURIOSITY FOR GENIUSES!

Curiosity remains our highest tenet when hiring, encouraging and supporting our team. it isn’t the easiest concept to unpack or teach, rather it’s become a habit and goal - to ask questions, be willing to fail or be uncomfortable, but most importantly to learn and teach as we do.

We speak with software engineer/friend of DFT Duck Grossberg about his incredible history in the entertainment industry, how he's leveraged his curiosity to find a myriad of solutions to problems on the set of some of Hollywood's biggest productions, and the practical ways in which one can enter the entertainment business.

New project with striking 3D letters adorning the storefront for our clients at DigitalFilm Tree ・・・ #frontsigns #3Dletters #signagecompany #outdoorbranding #signmaker #storefrontsigns
“I’ll be in the garage...” #makersgonnamake ⚡️ It’s been a minute, so I just wanted to give some of the new folks a little background on myself. I’m a native Angeleno, based in Burbank. I’m married and have two wonderful kids and a furry apprentice 🐶 As for my day job, I’ve been a film and TV editor at DigitalFilm Tree for about 17 years. Around 3 years ago I decided to make a cutting board for my mom as a gift for Mother’s Day and fell pretty hard down a rabbit hole that I’ve yet to surface from. Woodworking became a bit of an obsession for me, and different from my past hobbies (my wife reminds me I have many), in that it fused a lot of the mental and creative expressions that I had bumping around in my old brain. I started making small pieces of furniture for family and friends and as I shared some of my pursuits on Instagram more folks began to hit me up for work. I’ve been lucky enough to have really awesome clients who believe in my work and in turn I think I have helped them create furniture that will give them many years of utility and joy. Last year in the midst of all the chaos of the time, I had to take a break from woodworking because of a serious health matter. I won’t get into the details of that here, DM me if your curious, but I’ve steadily been on the mend and have been working on getting the shop up to fighting strength as you might have seen. I also have a backlog of work that my clients have been patiently waiting for, and although I am diving back into making again, I’m also doing it with a steady focus on quality not quantity, and mindfulness over speed. So be forewarned 😂 the goodies will take a minute to bake but the result will be 🍰 Thanks for reading this far and following along...the best of Kidlat ⚡️ is yet to come!
