What’s Your Major Goal or Dream Career?

Are you a filmmaker? A Screenwriter? Or, are you still trying to figure it out?

If you are none of the above and just like following my projects then that’s cool too!

Either way, I created this post for us to have an open dialogue about our ambitions and steps we’re taking to get there.

Whatever you do though, spend some time trying to get a clear vision for what you’re passionate about. Just because you start off as one thing doesn’t mean you have to retire that way. Especially when it comes to writing or filmmaking.

When I first started out, I only wanted to be a screenwriter. As I learned more about what a screenwriter’s career was like and the limitations it had — I knew that wasn’t all I wanted to do. I learned through  watching others and studying the greats that, for me to truly execute my vision I’d need to direct and maybe even in some cases produce.

What about you though? What are your ambitions and tell me what you’re doing to get there?

    Studying and working to be an actor.

  • As I read Denny above, I also am an inspiring actor. I’ve performed in plays the majority of my life and I just started working in films in the past 3-4 years.
    I lived in GA for 15 years but I reside in SC now close enough that I may travel to GA (3 hours away) and NC and fly out from GA pursuant of acting.
    My website has nothing to do with my acting but I am also an ordained Gift of Jesus (Eph. 4:11)

    My name is Blessing Amarachi Okoani and I am from Nigeria, Enugu State precisely and also an Undergraduate student. I am an amateur Screenwriter, who has passion for writing, never attended any Screenwriting school. Most of the knowledge I got about Screenwriting was from the YouTube videos I watched and through coursera. But I am aspiring to become a great Screenwriter here in my country and probably have my script produced. But due to the Unforeseen circumstances about cost and the right connections it has not been easy for an Undergraduate student like me.

      That is awesome. Don’t give up. Everything seems impossible until you actually do it. Start off with writing something that can be done on a reasonable budget. Leave out as much VFX and don’t include a bunch of characters or scenes that require a ton of extras.
