Tough Questions Require Tough Answers

This week I’m about to do my interview session for my film and I’m nervous as hell. I’ve mentioned this a couple of times on my blog about preparing for this interview session (The Hardest Part of My Film, Stepping In Front of The Camera) and let me tell you I’m still nervous about doing this.

It’s not that I’m afraid of being in front of the camera but I’m gonna be talking about my personal life, something that I never talk about not even to my closest friends. I’m also nervous about the questions that I came up with for my session and they’re really tough questions and in all honesty I don’t have the answers to those questions that I put together.

While I don’t have definitive answers, to me that’s a good thing because that’s what I wanted. I wanted to create questions that would put me in this position, not questions that only had one word answers. These questions make think and evaluate my life and being in a wheelchair. These questions put me in a very uncomfortable position and I like it that way. It means that I have answer these tough questions.

I feel that doing this session will have to force me talk about problems and issues in my life being in a wheelchair. I’ve never opened myself up like this before. This will be the most important part of my film and if I’m gonna get people interested in my film, I have to be in front of a camera and answer some tough questions.
