“Do not be told something is impossible. There is always a way.”
Don’t settle for anything less than your vision or dreams. This is your career. You can break in and become successful. You’ll need to constantly adjust and bend along the way, but there absolutely is room for you.
Follow your gut, and never give up trying. Go out of your way to help other people along your journey and then watch as the magic happens for you to accomplish your goals and dreams. You must find a way. And you will.
“My three Ps: passion, patience, perseverance. You have to do this if you’ve got to be a filmmaker.”
Screenwriting is not easy. If you’re fortunate enough to choose the stories that you write, pick something that drives you, gets you out of bed each morning excited for the new day’s adventures.
Passion for everyday writing comes with time and experience, but also from that incredible story inside you - bursting out and begging to be written. Discover what excites you as a person and put it on paper. Eventually it will find it’s way into a screenplay. Write the type of movie that you personally would want to watch.
Get excited! Go for it!
