Let me ask you a question. Why is it that people always try to discourage you instead of incourage you?? I met a random woman the other day who said "I used to work as a writter for 10 years, dont work in this industry, ive seen a million of your type come out here and fail horribly. Get a computer science degree." I dont understand why she was trying to discourage me.
You know what, not everyone was meant to work in the field of computer science. Its a great field, but some people are not content working in a cubicle 8 hours a day, They need to be doing something different. Some need to be doing something creative, some need to be doing something physical. Not everyone is meant to folly the same path in life.
I know I may sound naive, but instead of being such a bitch and telling me not to do something, wouldn't it be better to explain to me the mistakes that either you or the so-called "million people like me you have seen" have made in trying to make a career in the film industry? If it were as tough as you say it is, maybe someone needs to come along that can inflict some much needed change to the current status quo.
If no one ever took any chances on following their dream (Like what I am doing) there wouldnt be a film industry to work in, nor would there be a music industry, or airplanes. Even the USA wouldnt be in existance if people didn't take a chance. People change the world by taking chances, and thats what im doing with my life. I'm taking a chance, a leap of faith if you will. to try and do something different with my life.
I may not be the most experienced, or have the talent as some of the biggest stars in hollywood. But I have the drive, The passion, The Testicular Fortitude (a saying my old wrestling coach used), to take my chances out here. Maybe i will fail and fall flat on my face, or maybe I'll succeed. I honestly dont know, but what I do know is that i'm brave enough to at least try.
Until next time
