Other Stuff

May 30, 2013

I am a filmmaker I get to write my ideas, form them into scripts, and film them. My goal is to do that full time but right now I must do “other stuff” to continue to keep that dream alive. The point I want to make is if you have a dream don’t let other stuff get in the way of following your vision. I need to get some posts up about Zerpes my latest film. Pre-promotion as I call it is very “important”. So I have made it a priority to try and put different info on social media. However I would like to give advice to new filmmakers. If you want to write/make movies, you should be writing and making them. If I find myself trying to decide between posting some pictures or tweets or blogs and doing something that is directly related to me actually making a film I always avoid the social media stuff. It is cool to see comments about photos or trailers but in the end it doesn’t increase my skill as a filmmaker. If we get right down to it I’m bad at this pre-promotion stuff, but I don’t want to spend too much time getting good at it because it takes away from learning about the important stuff. Oh and you can follow me @thatscotland
