#question for @ladymcbethy: What is a successful moment in your career so far? #answer: My “career” amounts to peanuts – projects made at Film School & temp hours filling in for assistants to people who are actually important in Hollywood… I did have one glory-soaked screening while in Grad School, though, where people complimented the short I’d worked so hard on – faculty & friends validating the leap I’d taken into artistic vulnerability! (the choir sings!) But things got harder after that. I ended up quitting school over irreconcilable indifferences & setting out into the frigid landscape of actually independent filmmaking… just Aaron & me… a&B. And it’s funny, it didn’t look like “success” the way other people describe it. But, I realized it’s what I wanted all along – to be off the legitimate grid calling our own creative shots! Just a&B and total artistic liberty to make the work I’ve really got inside me! (the choir weeps!) Anyway, that’s what we’re working on now… just the culmination of everything – the big dream! – the nEXt mov(i)e… Hopefully the real “success” that’s still to cum… But I know I only have the courage to reinvent the wheel in the wilderness because I can still sip on fat memories of old flattery. Sometimes preaching to the choir is the only way to fuel your fire. #Sundance2016 #Sundancefest #Sundance #film #filmfestival #independentfilm #documentary #television #TV #media #art #Utah #FilmEquality #womeninfilm #womendirect #betterhollywood #thereelwomen #SundanceFilmFestival #bosslady #ladyboss #girlboss #picoftheday #instagood #inspiration #tvlover #tvnerd #craft @licketysplit23 @ManifestEcstasy http://ow.ly/i/fMwaX
