Those Who Make Their Own Breaks...

I’ve been working in and around the fringes of the entertainment industry for almost 10 years. I’ve made my own features, worked on others’, worked on big movies, small movies, commercials, videos…ect. I’ve meant tons of people who talk about how they want to be artists, filmmakers, musicians, editors, ect, ect…but that’s about all most do…they talk.

In this business you make your own opportunities, you make your own breaks.

Like Paul Misko and Gladys Otero. They are both actors. They both appeared in Monsters in the Woods. They are both proactive. They both got the roles themselves. Gladys I met on the set of promo film and was so taken with her personality and work ethic I wrote the part of Bianca in Monsters in the Woods for her. And then she suggested Paul for Kris and he totally won me over.

They were both a joy to work with. But that’s not all. They also just produced a T.V Pilot CLASSY together, which Paul directed and they have performing roles in. They also run a T-Shirt Company. FEVERYTHING

They are out there making their own breaks. That’s how you succeed in this business. Unless you have connections, money or family high up, you have to do it yourself. No one’s going to discover you and do it for you. You have to put yourself out there and do it.

That's all I got to say about that.
