You know, sometimes I'm hard on myself. I tend to really focus on the negative. How I'm not getting what I want accomplished.
I mean, I only want to be Steven Spielberg. Is that so much to ask?
I have decided to try to counter-act my negative thinking. I have been looking at some of the positives and trying to focus on them. It works...a little. For instance:
- Every movie I have ever done has acquired distribution from a reputable DVD company, with the exception of FOC2, which had an offer from Lionsgate that I turned down. Most filmmakers are lucky to get even one film distributed by a real company.
- It's incredibly likely that over a half a million people have seen a movie of mine. Think about that. How many people can say that? (I use statistics based on the "turns" from Rentrak, which is more or less only rentals) A HALF A MILLION...
- I have met some great people and became friends with people I never would have met if not for making movies.
