The most engaging storytellers create a window into a new world and encourage our minds to expand our own understanding of the world around us. At this point on the timeline, in 2022, with so much media available for us to access, have you ever wondered how the most powerful and popular storytellers unearth their stories? And, what part does intuition and spirituality play in bringing these stories to life?
This week on INSIDE THE WOONIVERSE, I’m speaking with one of the most influential film and television producers and storytellers in the world, Kristin Hahn. Kristin is the president of Hahnscape Entertainment, and has a robust body of work – including projects like ‘The Departed’, ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’, ‘Cake’, ‘Stargirl’, Netflix’s ‘Dumplin’ and Apple TV’s award winning big hit ‘The Morning Show’ with Jennifer Aniston. Kristin and Jennifer are also producing partners and co-own the company Echo Films.
Kristin is the author of In Search of Grace: A Religious Outsider’s Journey Across America’s Landscape of Faith and the 2022 Poling Chair at the Kelley Business School at Indiana University, teaching leadership styles in the workplace.
In this conversation, we speak about the magic of storytelling, the value of following your intuition and the vital connection between spirituality and creativity.
