I know what you are thinking, and before you even say a word, I promise that I have a good excuse for taking so long to write this post… Well I really actually don’t, but to be 100% honest, it was a few small excuses. I had several projects that were all going on that I was trying to wait for the blog post, but dates kept change, and things that were out of my control kept happening and i got busy, and I spent some time out of town, etc…
I have actually struggled with this blog post a lot. I have written 3 or 4 different versions of this post, and decided each time that I shouldn’t post it and I should write another. So here is a little truth… Sometimes things aren’t always good. I try really really hard to be known as the guy who always smiles, no matter what happens, no matter the stress, no matter the problems, I like to be the guy who always has a positive attitude and a smile, and I like other people to think of me as that as well. So my website was designed to give off that feel, and i try and represent my business like that, and live my life by it. And people enjoy it. Well the last few months have actually been really hard, and I have had a lot of stress, and several projects fall through, and several other projects I have been screwed over on, etc. It has just been rough. And guess what? That is life, especially life as a filmmaker. I try really hard to enjoy the journey as much as the place I want to end up, but filmmaking isn’t always fun, it’s hard, and the deck is stacked against you, and when it rains it pours. But the important thing is that you keep moving forward, and working hard! I am still smiling, or at least smiling again, and still going forward, and I have lots of cool stuff to tell you all about!
One of the things that kept me from writing this post, is I made a really cool music video!!! Check it out here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttwEJMPT1pc
Our friends at Bloodydisgusting.com actually wrote up a nice little article for its release! check it out here-http://bloody-disgusting.com/music/3400457/warner-drive-issues-anthem-douche-video-exclusive/
We finished the video on a very tight deadline, and I wanted to wait to post this blog post until it was finished but then the record label pushed the release date several times, so I just kept waiting and then it changed, and then i kept waiting and then it changed again, and so on. It’s out now, and it got a really good audience response. Please check it out and let me know what you think. This video might have actually been one of my hardest videos I have ever done. The budget was very very very tiny, and just like Murphy’s Law says, everything that can go wrong will. We had to push dates, actors bailed on us, locations changed on us, crew members backed out, deaths in families, tragedies, surgery, sicknesses, etc… it was seriously the most stressful and hardest video I have ever done, but I think it came out great!
Most of the other stuff I wanted to talk about has hit some issues so I can’t really talk about it, but I can tell you that I will tell you all about the bad news and the good news very soon. There will be big announcements soon!
