And right now I FEEL GREAT!
I have been to a few parties and taken some meetings – I just love the fact that everyone here is, in some way, part of the film business, or at the very least in a creative business such as music or fashion. Add to that the overwhelming feeling of ‘come on, let’s do it…’ and I am really wondering why I am choosing to stay in London.
I was asked today, ‘If I was offered a ‘Go Project’ right now, but I had to move to LA, would I do it?’ It didn’t take me long to answer, YES!
It’s really sad for me that within a couple of meetings in one day, LA has made me feel more welcome and understood than I have in a year of banging on doors in London. Sure, I know some of it is just the ‘yes’ culture of Hollywood, and some is just hyperbolae, but I must admit, I feel more inspired than I have in some time. Maybe I really do need to consider my future on this side of the pond. They certainly have the weather.
I am going to Santa Barbara tomorrow, to the film festival, and hope to bring you the first video webisode shortly thereafter…
Onwards and upwards!
