Each piece costs up to $500 thousand. We hear ruminations on the intersection of art and commerce, Wilson's approach to tackling projects and his startling act of kindness that led him onto his theatrical path.

Scott Harrison has a gravitas born of growing up too fast watching his beloved mother chronically suffer of carbon monoxide poisoning.

He founded charity: water, an organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.

On this episode of "The Forbes Interview" podcast, hear Burns and Novick talk storytelling, technology and how to make long-form films in this short-attention-spanned, digital world. The first episode of the series aired on PBS on September 17.
