Its MARCH, two weeks of the year  are already gone!!!!

As we  you look out on 2018, you think about your career as a filmmaker, you’ve made a lot of content, made a lot of tv and web stuff, but no feature film yet.

If you are over 30 this may weigh heavy on you as you think about  all the stories of filmmakers like Orson Wells, John Singleton, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, Spike Lee and others who made their breakthrough film in their 20s.

You look at the young ones in their mid 20s making moves and its impressive what they achieved at such a young age; it can be depressing if you are long pass that period in your years.

But have you heard of those who made their début  film in their 30s and 40s?

So, don’t get discouraged.

It’s not too late.  Many filmmakers are still directing and producing into the 70s and 80s, so even if you are in your mid 30s or early 40s, you still have a long time to make films.  With more and more distribution networks removing the middle man, maybe you can focus on building your audience and people who love what you want to make. Shorts, Skits, Directing TV, whatever you need to show your creative expressions.

So, as you begin 2018, keep your head, don’t get caught in the ageism.

Work smart, do your thing, go forth and be awesome.
