This video is an envisioning of “what I’m afraid of.”
For the past couple of months I’ve been tracking filmmakers online. If I like what I see, I cold call them, introduce myself, and try to start a dialogue. I think that’s what they call a hard sell in business. Don’t quote me on that. And correct me if I’m wrong.
These calls have been incredibly nerve racking. I keep asking myself, What am I so afraid of? What’s the worst that could happen? Is it my pride? The answer is yes. I’m terrified of losing my dignity.
I recently started filming these calls to capture the drama. So far, I’ve filmed two calls which I will release shortly. In the meantime, watch me take the hit for all the nervous actors with egos to protect.
One qualification: No time or effort whatsoever was put into the production quality of this video. Oh, I lied. I turned on two lights!
One note: In calls to filmmakers who don’t know they’re being filmed, I edit out names and distort voices if necessary.
