Episode 11 – Dimithri Perera



Dimithri discusses 5 things that changed his life:

  1. Putting your heart and soul into a scripted web series that’s fully written, produced, and shot but now sits on a shelf, only partially completed.
  2. When you’re no longer wearing blue body paint and holding a lamp nobody knows who the heck you are.
  3. Getting glasses at age 6 made him cool until he moved to a new school. Then, he was just a geek.
  4. Beast Boy and Raven. Nick Fury and Black Widow. Matching ugly Christmas sweaters. It’s been 4 years and still going strong.
  5. Starting an improv troupe is starting a business. Where’s the fun in that?
