Watch: Chloë Sevigny Impersonator Drew Droege Gives Advice at Tribeca N.O.W.

This Tribeca Talk featured the creative minds behind this year’s Tribeca N.O.W. (New Online Work), which celebrates creators working in the online space, including web series, animation, documentary and comedy. In this clip, actor and comedian Drew Droege, best known for his funny online impressions of Chloë Sevigny, gives advice about show business. “Make what you like,” he says, explaining that if you try to do what’s “trending” or “hot,” you will always fail — instead, people should make projects they feel passionate about. Droege’s own videos were online for three months with under 100 hits, until one day they suddenly went everywhere. Droege admits luck and timing play a big role in industry success. 

Droege was joined by Bianca Giaever, Jayson Musson (“Adventures of Jamel”) and Gregory Bayne (“Zero Point”) at the Apple Store in Soho, Manhattan for one of Apple and Indiewire’s Tribeca Talks, which was moderated by Indiewire’s Holly Voges. You can watch the whole panel discussion on iTunes here, or listen to it in podcast form here.
