entertainment industry coach Question 485: Is it possible to meet directors like Spielberg and Scorsese?

Of course it's possible. Depending on where you live, you may have to leave your area. Look, pretty much everyone is accessible in Hollywood. You can see directors speak at Q&As about their films, especially around award time. You can meet them at an awards show. You can get a job working for their company. You can work hard at your craft and business and get famous enough to be introduced. You can bump into them at the Century City Mall. You can buy a star map. Do you see where I'm going with this?

I can go on and on about ways to meet famous people you admire. But why do you want to meet them? What's your objective? Who would you be if you got the opportunity... a professional ready to have a colleague to colleague conversation or a blubbering fan?

Maybe I don't understand why you're asking the question so I'm not giving a very good answer.
