A very important message for all filmmakers!

The other day I was watching this Keynote presentation by Effie Brown, that she delivered  at the 2016 Film Independent Forum at the Directors Guild in Los Angeles, for a class and I found it very interesting and I think she says important things about the film making world:

  • Ask for help! there is nothing wrong in it
  • People can’t read your mind, but if you are honest with them they can help
  • You need to have clear in your mind what are you doing here and why are you doing it. Be faithful with your what and why.
  • and the most important QUITE your  mind, RELAX, everyone has a dream and that is manifesting as a calling, You have a valid point of you, and you BELONG HER AND THERE IS PLACE FOR YOU IN THIS BUSINESS.

Since probably you are wondering who Effie Brown is, here some information about her. She is a film and television producer known for such films and television series as Rocket Science, In the Cut, Real Women Have Curves, Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her. At this link her IMDb page http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0113500/

Enjoy the video 🙂
