How I Get By - Epis. #36: Berlin-based filmmaker Spencer McDonald feels like he gets paid TOO much money

Epis. #36: Berlin-based filmmaker Spencer McDonald feels like he gets paid TOO much money

How I Get By
Berlin-based American Spencer McDonald describes his path to becoming a professional filmmaker, from driving Lyft in San Francisco to interning for a filmmaker in Portland - while doing odd jobs from wild-berry harvesting to carpentry - and barely getting by, and then getting paid to shoot commercials for companies to Lyft to Disney, sometimes making as much as $30,000 for a single one-month job. He also talks about why he left the cozy bubble of Portland, Oregon for Berlin, where he lives mainly with non-Americans and enjoys the more social, communal lifestyle.
