My journey in the film industry started when I was around 15-16 and bought a VHS camcorder off eBay for around $15.00. I would record everything in sight, with no care for editing, sound, and etc. It was fun. I was having fun. But as I got older, I wanted to make better projects, and use better equipment. This is where my t2i came into the picture. (No pun intended.) After I purchased my t2i, I thought it was going to be easy to get talented people to make great projects with. SUPER WRONG! I’ve joined and thoroughly searched numerous filmmaking forums, meetup groups, facebook groups, and etc, with little to no response. Either they’re out there and don’t want to collaborate with me, or they’re not serious about it. I mean, I would stay up until 6-7am (EVERYDAY!) sending emails, text messages, facebook messages, and etc to numerous people to little avail.
That’s when it hit me; WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES IN YOU, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF SOME MORE.
This is a collaborative industry, so I won’t stop “trying” to network. But I’m going to start being a bit more selective, instead of trying to network with everybody, which seems to be the norm.
SEE YOU AT THE TOP!!!!!
