Just remember that you CAN make a really good film if you put yer' mind to it...
Not to sound like Stuart Smalley, but I know I have a few good stories in me. That's what I've been struggling with lately is I'd say I wanted to be a filmmaker, but always said I'd probably never succeed. Once I realized that statement was NOT "being realistic," it was being self defeatist I got a lot better. In the last few years I've let what once was my dream become my hobby. Not anymore!
As for story driven films -- that's what I want to do. As much as I want to be famous, I do NOT want to work in Hollywood. I want to be a very successful indie filmmaker. And we don't have any money, and investors in KC are few and far between, so we have to rely on good stories.
This latest is a killer! It's called "Obituary" and will be a web serial, 7 episodes, about 4 minutes each. Coming soon!
