The End is Just The Beginning
I’m here in the bay, personally editing the final, final cut (yeah, right!) of our movie Dying to do Letterman.
After six years, hundreds of hours of footage, countless cans of Pepsi Max, 60 pounds gained, then 60 pounds lost (thank goodness) we’re finally nearing…the beginning?
Finishing the Movie is Just the Beginning
Anyone who’s put in the blood, sweat, and tears it takes to actually finish a movie (and kudos to anyone who does) probably feels the right to catch their breath and celebrate.
But, that’s not how it works.
In today’s indie film landscape, finishing a movie is just part one of a very, very long journey to bring your film to the world.
So, if you’re going to spend six years making a movie, it better be something you’re passionate about…a story you want to tell more than anything.
We Want to Share Steve’s Story More than Anything
Maybe Steve’s story seems simple: a man learns he only has so long to live, and so dedicates his life to living his dream.
But I believe the world would be a far better place if everyone, regardless of their health or other circumstances decided their dreams were worth pursuing. That’s why we wanted to make this movie.
We believe dreams are important. So does Steve.
That’s why he said, “I will live my dream, or die trying.”
Where Are You in Your Dream Quest?
Maybe you’re actively chasing your dream. Maybe not. Perhaps you think your dream has passed you by? Maybe you think your dream has come to an end?
Well, remember…the end is just the beginning. Here’s to your new start, wherever you are.
