I was ready to roll on the production with a solid cast and a great script but when the production fell apart right in front of my eyes I took a step back and decided that I would use these extra few months to make sure all the pieces were in place moving forward with Top Guy Productions.
I have several short films in line and this extra time before we start working on The Vengeful One will allow me to focus on other projects. I can continue my training for the role of a lifetime on my Top Secret Project. I have the next short film project written and have already started working on promotional material for it.
I'm a positive person and I look for the positive in every situation and I think alot of that change in attitude is due to my relationship with my partner, editor, camera man Chris Fyfe. He has made me see things differently and this is 100 % a good thing. Life is a wild, crazy ride that has up, downs peaks and valleys but one thing I can tell you is this life is too short to be caught up in all the negative stuff. I focus on the positive now and it's the best thing for me.
Now that's not to say that I wasn't angry about The Vengeful One being postponed because I was. I put countless hours into this project and running this company and to have it all come to a crashing stop was soul crushing. I took the weekend to get my self together and come up with a new plan of action.
I put out a notice that I'll be recasting a couple of roles for the movie and have already received a bunch of applicants which is always a plus. I've learned alot since I started making movies and one thing that I've learned that I'll share with all of you is that these things happen in this business even the biggest Hollywood movies have issues like this. It's all in how you handle these set backs.
I'm handling this latest set back by focusing on getting future projects going and making sure I write the best scripts possible so when I meet with Chris next time I have some cool projects to show him .
Remember my friends the only thing stopping you from reaching your goals is you, if you truly believe you can make your dream happen nothing will stop you from making it happen!
Stay Humble, Stay Hungry My Friends :)
