Jeff Shafer, CEO of CommonGood Capital, is joined by Korey Pollard, a 30 year veteran of film and TV production, to chat about his early start as a 16-year old actor in Rob Reiner’s Stand By Me, to his big move to Hollywood where he worked his way up from furniture mover to First Assistant Director on many well known TV shows – he’s currently working on the long-running hit TV show Chicago Fire.
