#FlashBackFriday ~ The day “Transit,” my first indie film was released nationwide & I started receiving checks for my #art was one of the best feelings ever! Getting paid to do what you love – to live out your dreams is #priceless … Not only did it prove to the flakes, snakes, haters, doubters & naysayers that I was serious when I said I wanted to make films for a living, it also reaffirmed that I could do anything I wanted as long as I put my mind (and grind) to it! Not only did my film land DVD/Blu-ray distribution in North America (U.S., Canada & Mexico), it went on to sell worldwide in Venezuela, Brazil, Russia, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, etc., and on cable & streaming/download services…That’s true success and a dream come true for my “small” independent film.
The success of ‘Transit’ allowed me to invest into my company and myself and go on to make numerous other projects. I still get royalty checks to this day off my first project! These are some of the random checks I scanned over the years, including that 1st one that was a very welcome reward to all my hard work. This is not even close to all the💲I’ve made off ‘Transit’!
Getting paid for your art is the greatest! ☺ Don’t talk about it, be about it! Not to sound cliche, but follow your dreams… Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life. #iTookaRiskanditPaidOff #ItWasAllADream #PaidInFull #DreamBig #TransitMovie #IndieFilm #MovieMaker🎥
