“Hacking Hollywood” Contributors On Martin Scorsese’s Courage, Mel Brooks’s Rebellious Creativity, And More

Hollywood’s complicated relationship with ingenuity is the subject of our new ebook anthology. Fast Company has long been fascinated by Hollywood’s relationship with ingenuity; the industry relies on original thinking to create entertainment that captivates and shapes society yet it also steadfastly resists ideas, business models, and technology that threaten the status quo. That’s a recipe for rich stories. Our new anthology, Hacking Hollywood, goes inside hit shows to explore how they’re made and to glean some insight about creativity and collaboration. We profile the upstarts and the interlopers trying to shake things up. Hacking Hollywood: The Creative Geniuses Behind Homeland, Girls, Mad Men, The Sopranos, Lost, and More is available for download in the iBookstore as well as Amazon’s bookstore and other retail outlets. An expanded version is available as a special edition iPad app. Download Fast Company's app to access it.Read Full Story     Continue reading at 'Fast Company'
