On Friday, September 12, Assistant Professor of Communication Rochelle Robertson flew to Hollywood to attend a premiere of Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Jared Leto’s documentary film, Artifact, which documents how Leto and his band challenged a 30 million dollar lawsuit brought against them by a major record label in 2009.
She had the privilege of meeting Leto and discussing his craft with the actor/filmmaker and a small group of artists backstage at the American Chinese Theatre in Hollywood following the film.
During the Q and A, he shared some words of wisdom for young talent, both from his experiences making the film, and over 15 years as lead singer, writer, and musician for the alternative rock band 30 Seconds to Mars:
“I was surprised at how many thousands of hours I had to put in to make this film… I almost lost everything.To make it, you have to focus, to stay with it; refuse to sell out…be willing to bleed for it… I hope that after all of my life experiences, I am a kinder general now.”
Professor Robertson will receive a copy of the documentary and hopes to share it--and pictures from the event--with students in the near future.
