I remember a time when I wanted to be a psychologist. I love studying the mind but it felt like it wasn’t where I was meant to be. I was in my final days of college and I made a choice. I did not want to be here. I got the degree, that wasn’t even a film degree. It was a communication arts degree. I left the school and decided to pursue something completely different. I decided to work in the film industry. Three years ago I was a D.I.T. on my first feature film. I did not know what I was doing. I did extensive research and asked more questions than I can possibly ask to learn what I needed to do. The film is in its festival run so it all turned out great.
Three years ago I did something I didn’t expect to do. and after that project I got onto other ones and I learned. I adapted, I worked hard. I keep trying. Even if someday I master it… I continue to try. That’s all I could really do. Each project is something new. I meet new people and I learn from them. I’m grateful to them for giving me the slightest chance; because without those who I’ve learned from, who knows where I would be.
Today like any other day I feel grateful. I don’t even bother to think about what life could’ve been if things didn’t pan out the way they did. So Thank you. Thank you for teaching me, Thank you for guiding me. Thank you for what I’ve learned from all of you. Hopefully I do you justice.
