To a future filmmaker,
For every thousand that read this, one will become a filmmaker. And you will do it because you can't not do it. Your film must speak to many with a singular voice. Ask yourself what you have to say, and then say it in ways that are unique to you. Let your film surprise you… enjoy the twists and turns. Recognize when lightning strikes, even if it’s not what you planned. Be quick to bottle it. Every film is a singular vision and a great collaboration. Always stay humble before the craft. On your 100th film there will be much to learn. And the most important thing - pick up a camera and get going. Make a film and put your name on it. Now you’re a filmmaker.
