Tonight, I had another chance to connect with filmmaker Reinaldo Marcus Green in person, and also to attend a panel discussion on which he and several others spoke about distributing independent films... At tonight's events, several talented panelists devoted their time to helping answer questions by excited filmmakers and actors, all eager to produce creative material for the world to see... Aside from learning a German opera and working on my film career, I'm looking forward to creating my very own webseries. I want to interview people who balance exceedingly high levels of success and happiness - they are rare!
Last night, I had the pleasure of attending SAG-AFTRA's Short Film Fest, seeing more incredible films, and hearing from actors and filmmakers who used their skills and creativity to tell moving and surprising stories... As I rode home on the A train, I thought about my occasional reluctance to networking and realized - I've held myself back. Not just career-wise... I've kept myself from taking risks and, most importantly, from meeting talented, inspired and incredible people.
