My talent (if that’s what we call it) is never, ever doubting goose bumps….the goose bumps do not lie.

» “I Am A Nobody Filmmaker”
Hell yes, this fella has the right idea:
What baker bakes one loaf of bread and asks for thousands of dollars to open a bakery? What architect designs one home and expects to have thousands of fans on Facebook? None. It’s ludicrous. As a nobody filmmaker, I have come to realize that I need to earn my right to ask people for their time and money. And the way to do that is by consistently making films, plain-and-simple…
Coming to grips with my nobody-ness as a filmmaker has set me straight in many ways. Rather than attempt to make a great film and attain thousands of fans, my focus now is to continually make the very best films I can within my means.
Make what you can with what you have. Keep doing it.
