What are you growing in your filmmaking garden?

A filmmaker’s career is like the soil.  The soil will only grow what has been planted. The soil doesn’t discriminate between what is edible and what is poisonous. Whatever is planted and fertilized will eventually become the crop. Occasionally, the wind may blow a useful seed into the right place, but the best way to ensure the right thing is planted in the right place is to do a bit of farming.  What are you planting in your mind? Do your actions match the results you want? Don’t allow poor habits to move you further from your dreams. Tend to your career as if it were a garden. Plant something useful. Water and fertilize.  Remove the weeds. It takes time, but eventually you’ll harvest a nice crop.

Success

I’m extremely proud of the students I’ve had over the last several months. They are not only talented, they are awesome people. Tonight, a group of them brought home the “people’s choice” award at the VHS film festival. The movie was titled “Game Night”. It’s a comedy short, directed by Micah Hudson (a former student).  Soak up the attention, you guys deserve it.
