"The Big One"

I’m 7 days away from production on what could very well be “the big one.” I guess I should take a second to explain what I mean by “the big one.” (It’s not sexual).

For different moviemakers “the big one” means many different things. For some it’s the movie that makes them rich and or famous. Not me. I mean, that would be cool and all, but I’m not quiet egomaniacal enough to count on that. No, for me “the big one” as nothing to do with riches or fame, it’s about doing what I love and only what I love for a living. It’s about quitting the 9 to 5 and working full time making MY movies. So far, this dream as eluded me.

I’ve made money on my movies, but not enough to quit the day gig. So “the big one” for me is the movie that sets me on the path to financial independence. A movie that makes enough money for me to not only finance my next, but also put enough in my pocket to pay my rent at the end of the month. That’s it. No fancy cars or houses. Just maintaining my current lifestyle while making movies. With Monster in the Woods, I honestly think I’m closer than ever before to reaching my goal.
