Harvey Weinstein's Advice for Filmmakers

Watch his interview on "Real Biz With Rebecca Jarvis."

— -- The best advice sometimes comes along when you least expect it.

Before breaking into the film industry, Weinstein started in the music industry, independently producing and promoting rock concerts with his younger brother Bob.

“I’ll never forget, his brother-in-law and his father-in-law talking to me one day about what a publishing company is and how you own rights to publishing,” Weinstein tells ABC News Chief Business, Technology and Economics Correspondent Rebecca Jarvis. “And I just said, ‘Hmm, that same thing can apply to us?’ As we grew successful, just so that we can buy libraries, we can buy films, we can put them in a library and curate the library. So that came from Paul McCartney.”
