WEEK 13 - GET BACK TO WORK

“Quit your complaining. It’s not the world’s fault that you wanted to be an artist.

Steal a camera if you must, but stop whining and get back to work.”

Week 12 - Rejection

Rejection is not a big deal. It means you are actually in a game playing at something. You are not being punished when you get rejected, you are being transformed.

Week 11 - Throwing Ourselves In

We all want to make big movies, write scripts that get nominated, win awards and have financial freedom doing what we love.
