Antoine Fuqua: My First Big Break

If you’re looking to start a career, change careers or just feel like you’ve hit a plateau in your current career take five minutes and let Antoine Fuqua give you some inspiration.

Fuqua sat down with mediabistroTV and told the crew how his journey started when he was in the wrong place at the wrong time in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. He sprinkled in some college basketball, a little Caravaggio, some Akira Kurosawa and a few rap music videos and never quit chasing his dream.

Now, the director of the new action film “Olympus Has Fallen” is one of Hollywood’s premiere action film directors. But how he got there is a lesson even the best self-help guru can’t teach.

Fuqua’s latest movie, “Olympus Has Fallen” opens in theaters March 22.
