What Are My Goals…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on my blog . I apologize for that but my life has been busy the last month or so with starting back at DePaul, working on my film and assembling my film team. So far I got a couple of people on board with my documentary and I’m so glad to have them on my team.

Yesterday in my Senior Capstone class we did an in class activity and the activity was What are your goals…and basically it what were are goals for the next year, and what were are goals in five years and ten years. It was an interesting activity for me because I really haven’t thought about what my goals were for the future and it took me some time to figure out where I see myself not just in one year but down the line. I want to share with you all what I wrote.

For the next year, my goal is to have my film finished, distributed and shown across the country at different film festivals. It’s a goal that I feel will set me up for my goals in five and ten years. In five years, my goal is to be directing more films or producing a television series. In ten years, I plan to be married (hopefully) and I continue to make a name for myself in the film and television industry.

I feel like these goals are attainable and I understand that if I want to make it in these industries I have to work hard and network to make it. This film is the stepping stone to my success and I hope that I know that I will be a success because I’m a strong person and I have persevered through a lot of tough times in my life and nothing is gonna stop me for completing my goals.

Being In Front of The Camera

Last Friday I had my interview session for my film and it was a great experience. Normally I’m the one holding the camera and capturing some great footage, but this time I was in front of the camera and let me say that it was a nerve-racking experience for me. Now it was nerve-racking for me before shooting my session because I had never done this before and I knew that this was going to be an important part of my film so I was nervous (wouldn’t you be knowing that you were gonna be in front of a camera?).

So on that day I met with my special adviser Camille (who has been an important part of my film) and I was scared to death but I didn’t want to show that to her so I was cool and calm but inside, I was freaking out. After a little hiccup (camera issues) we got started and Camille started asking me questions that I had put together and a couple of her own and as I started talking, I started to relax and all the nervousness I had was gone.

I was really comfortable talking about my life and answering tough questions. There were some times when I didn’t realize when the camera was on and that was a great thing for me because I got a chance to talk and express how I felt about my life in a wheelchair. This was one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life and in all honesty I don’t know what I was worried or nervous about. This was a great experience and I plan to do a second interview session in the future. Hell, you might see in front of the camera more often
