Waking up to excitement every day this year!
Sunday morning at 8:00 am, my alarm clock went off.
I didn't want to wake up just yet - after all, I didn't fall asleep until 2:00 am, and I was tired.
Luckily, I have a girlfriend who was on her way to a seminar to hold a product presentation today, so she called me at 8:30 to say good morning, and to make sure I got out of bed and started working.
Getting a wake-up call from my girlfriend is a really great way to start the day.
I believe this is the key to success.
You need to be properly motivated, and passionate about what you do. It makes it so much easier to start the day, and spend your weekends working when everybody else needs time off.
And these days I really am motivated. In just a few months, we will be shooting the feature film Josh Taylor's Prom Date, and there is so much to do before that happens!
I guess it's a good thing I didn't take the day off, because I still need to find all the resources needed for this movie.
Just a couple of movie folks, scanning the world for resources.
Six years ago, I made my first movie, without even knowing how to press the REC-button of my video camera. (Well, a little exaggerated, but almost like that).
Several projects later, I have gained an incredible amount of knowledge, and I still learn new things every, single day.
In just 3 weeks or so, I'll be going to Los Angeles to complete the casting for the movie!
I can't wait to meet all the talented actors in person, and see who can impress and excel to get the parts!
This will be a very exciting year, people...stay tuned. ;O)
