Film Making


Making a film is like deciding to adopt an orphan from some war torn, strife ridden corner of the world. At first it seems like a great idea. There's a lot of energy and excitement of what's to come. Then after a while it starts waking you up screaming in the night, and freaking out in company.
Shitting all over your regular plans and costing you more than you expected.
Eventually you want to avoid it but you can't, because if you do it'll wither away and die and by now you feel some responsibility for it.
And people keep asking "How's the film? Is it doing well?".
So you stick with it, through the exhaustion and late nights and drama.
One day it grows up and it heads out on it's own and you've either grown to love it or you never want to see it again.

A little bit profound, and, according to Miss Hathorn, (who now knows) every word is true...

As an 18 year old cartoonist taking a gap year off from college, I haven't even learned to animate, but I can already imagine what a love and hate battle it must be to be able to create your own film independently. Good luck with the film, sir. Michael Sporn seems to be highly in favor of it.
