Getting The “Yes” & Working Alongside Jennifer Lopez, With Producer & Writer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas

Before Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas was known as one of today’s most respected producers, she was one of the most successful female agents (if not one of the most successful agents overall), representing celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Julia Roberts, Spike Lee, and Halle Berry.    Elaine rose through the ranks as an agent at the William Morris Agency in the ‘80s, which was known as a boys’ club, and went on to hold top positions in the industry such as partner and co-head of Revolution Studios. Elaine is currently a producing partner with Jennifer Lopez and oversees Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions. She is also a producing partner with Halle Berry and oversees Berry’s 606 Films.    In this episode, we chat about how Elaine started working with Jennifer Lopez as her agent, the record-breaking success of “Hustlers”, which Elaine produced, the art of the pivot in “Second Act” (which Elaine wrote and produced, and Jennifer starred in), and the upcoming “Marry Me.” Elaine inspires as a woman who leans into her truth and voice as a writer, and who always refused to accept “no” as an answer.  Produced by Dear Media

“Share Of Voice” is a podcast about the power of discovering your voice and sharing your truth in the process. Hosted by journalist Karin Eldor, each episode features compelling conversations with the wave makers and game changers on our radar. Less “how I built this” and more “how I make noise,” guests will share how they amp it up in their work. Do they express themselves boldly in their OOTDs or beauty looks, on their social media channels, or in every way, on the daily? It’s about creating ripple effects. Feeling heard. Shaking up the status quo and breaking way out of the boxes that society has imposed on us. We’ll discuss doubling down on yourself unapologetically, and raising your frequency so much that you take up ALL. THE. SPACE. Prepare for inspiring soundbites and mic drop moments, from the disruptors who have made a living from living out loud. You ready to get loud af?
