Put It Out In The World

If this quote from J. J. Abrams doesn't inspire you to pursue wholeheartedly your filmmaking passion, read it again ... and again ... and again. 

You have cameras in your pockets, a million times better than anything we had when we were kids. And you can make your movie now. [The feature] ‘Tangerine’ was filmed entirely on iPhones. It’s not just possible, it’s increasingly common. Find the material—and if you can’t find it, write it. And if you can’t do it, find the person who can. If you put it out in the world, people will see it, and they will contact you.
— J. J. Abrams
