Reflect back to the start of your filmmaking career. What mistakes have you made? How far have you grown as a filmmaker? Are you better at your craft? Have you tighten up your story?
I made this video while at the Richard Lawson Studios. I nearly forgot about it. It was shot around November 2010. It made me smile because my career was facing a lot of uncertainty. I had just left my day job to concentrate on filmmaking. I also failed at it several times. Several doors were shut in my face.
Now in 2014, my career is taking a more positive turn. I finally have a car, and I own better equipment. This is my point: if you want to make a career in film, you WILL face some uncertainty and some moments where you would want to give up. This #ThrowbackThursday video reminded me how optimistic I was about my career, even with my limitations. In the end, isn't this the point of #ThrowbackThursday? Failure is a constant for truly successful people. Embrace it!
