I just learned that the below short film, made by writer Geoff LaTulippe - a short he made for WME's company retreat, starring comedian/action J.B. Smoove - helped Mr LaTulippe close his first directing job at Paramount - an untitled comedy ensemble based on his pitch.

Paramount prez Adam Goodman saw LaTulippe's short film on Deadline, and ordered a meeting with LaTulippe (a writer with a few credits aspiring to direct), and eventually bought his pitch. Not sure if J. B. Smoove is part of the *package* though.

If only it were always that easy... watch the short below:
