Good morning future Academy Award winners. I wish there were an award I could covet; the AA isn't one of them, but it's all we got right now...so there you have it.
The Hamptons International Film Festival started last night and as you know, our fellow traveler is showing her film there. Which of course got me to thinking…
For SURE start following the festivals you would like to see yourself in one day. Actor, producer, or whomever, make it a goal to follow 10 festivals...
Look at that festival's films and see if you see a mirror of the film in which you want to be seen, heard or develop. If there is, comment on it. And, if you can watch that film virtually, do. Then follow that film/actor/producer (whatever mirrors you). Look at what they post that has worked. Comment on them.
It's fun. It's thought provoking and it reminds you that this is a process of building your circle of influence that cares about what you care about. And, that your present circle should always grow.
Post some of your ideas here if you want. Share the festival you found that might matter.
