    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Focus Features (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First Interview is general about past experience and why Focus. Second Interview is more detailed in regards to your experience and opinion on films. Be prepared to know significant knowledge about films, directors, writers etc. It is essential to sound interested in the actual industry and not just the job at hand. They also have you do sample script coverage after your second interview.
