Apart from the rant all I would say is this, answer yourself this question if you can.
Where do I want my film to take me?
its important to know where you are heading as it is as important to know that you should be moving forward with each step, I find it very frustrating when I see people take a step back, I have to ask myself why?
Lately the hype on motivational speakers don't motivate me, someone screaming that you are special and you can do it does not show me anything, Its important that you know your goals and stick to your plan but most of all be honest to yourself to the point where you have to ask yourself, what am I doing and where will what I'm doing take me. you never know where the roads lead, sometimes the hardest journeys are the ones that we need.

Let me show you my vision.
