Being The "Famous" Guy At A Funeral ....
As soon as I said "oh I'm making movies" that is where the conversation stayed for the remainder of the time we were together and it continued once we got to Mom's house for the service which was cool and all but still felt weird to be promoting myself, my movies and my company at a service to honor my brothers life . I gave a copy of the movie to my uncle to watch, which isn't a big deal really I'm happy to do it . He was telling everyone that I'm a film maker at the service so was handing out business cards left and right .
I'm happy that my family is totally supportive of what I do and they want me to be successful . I managed to make it through the service and the reading of the Eulogy I wrote for my brother with out crying ... All day yesterday my Facebook page was flooded with support from friends, family and fans from across the globe which is an amazing feeling :) I replied to everyone that reached out to me and it really helped to keep me grounded and calm through out the day so THANK YOU for all your support during the difficult time .
I'm still getting used to the "fame" that comes with making movies and even though these people were friends and family it was still really weird to be talking about the movie and my company and really anything other then my brother but I did it and I'm glad I did now my family knows what I'm doing and can support me n my journey to stardom ..
Moving Forward ....
I want to make movies for the sake of making movies and make alittle money at the same time, while I don't want the hassle of wealth beyond what I can manage I would like to be able to make a living from making movies . Big houses, fast cars, loose women not really big deal too me . I want to make a living at movie making plain and simple . Fame is something that takes getting used to because I see myself as someone who is just living their dream, I don't think I'm "famous" or anything special for that matter, I'm just a guy that decided that I was going to stop with the dreaming and chase the dream and not stop until I made it happen .
With Sins of Man II : Vengeance in full swing now we will have our second film out on DVD on Halloween and we have several more projects in the works in the coming years .
My hope is that my movies will be a part of my legacy that I leave in this world because after I'm gone and been gone for years my films will still be here and that's what's really important to me is to leave something behind for future generations to hopefully inspire someone else to chase their dream and never give up til they accomplish it .
I figure the money and fame will take care of it's self and end up the way it's supposed to but legacy is something I control with how I do business with people, how I treat fans and how my movies are received by the horror community, right ??
STAY HUMBLE, STAY HUNGRY MY FRIENDS :)
