This is actually very personal to me. And the more I think about it, the more proud I am for doing something that may never come about.
I talked about this in my recent blogs, but now, I want to talk about what I feel after that event. I’ve been thinking a lot if Francis Ford Coppola would ever look at my work after handing him my business card. Maybe one day he would type in the address to my website and be amazed…. or maybe he never will. But regardless of that, deep down in my heart, I felt it was an opportunity to seize. If I hadn’t done anything, I would have felt miserable of myself for not trying my best. But fortunately, I did and now we let fate take its course.
The point of this blog is to be inspired to do what you can, without hurting others, to take your career to the next level. There will be a lot of risks and the things you fear most will be confronted. I believe when facing those challenges ahead of you, you will be able to overcome those challenges with a lot of hard work, practice, persistence, and confidence. If Francis never calls me, then that’s ok. But I took the leap to reach out to him and gave it a shot for him to see my work. It wasn’t some event that wouldn’t be appropriate to speak to him, but it was a networking and educational event. So if he doesn’t look at it, then its not meant to be. There will be many other people and many other opportunities, but most of all, I’m very much prepared for those opportunities to reach another level.
With that being said, time is wasted when waiting for the “opportunity”. Kvibe Productions is producing a film called “Whitlock Asylum” produced by Me, Vito LaBruno, David Henehan, and Chris Wilcox. I will be directing the film and we can assure you that this film will take its course to higher levels in the film industry.
