Markus Mentzer (This is the End, Neighbors, The Diary of a Teenage Girl, Garfunkel & Oates) has one of those jobs that when you explain it to someone who doesn't work in the film business it sounds both bizarre and insanely impossible...which it is. He's a 1st Camera Assistant (commonly known as a "Focus Puller") and among many other things he keeps the image you see in the movie theater in focus. I consider it to be the hardest and most thankless job on a film set and when you find someone like Markus (who is simply masterful at it) you can't help but wonder about how he does it. Makus's story is emblematic of what this podcast is all about. He's got one of those ludicrously tangential career paths that we love to hear about and will, no doubt, inspire those of you out there who want to follow your dream (or run away from your nightmare). Enjoy.
