A graduate of Howard Law School, Kyle Alex Brett now serves as counsel to Netflix after a few unfulfilling stops with various corporate and entertainment law groups. The film analyst and lawyer now works on the independent films side: which constitutes films that fall under a $40 million production budget.
This conversation discusses the daily responsibilities of an operator who moonlights as a creator within the machine of a streaming economy giant. We took a deep-dive into the new Netflix film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and the strength of a Netflix corporate culture that prioritizes talent and people (See the recent decision regarding Chappelle Show).
Brett also shares personal and abstract philosophy that influences his effective, consistent, and infectious presence on Twitter. Kyle’s voice and actions are rooted in the principle of prolific creation: repetition that outlasts the noise. Of course, the conversation ultimately converges on the future of the film industry and the rise and inevitability of streaming as the primary method of box office growth.
