Being a failure

Updated: Aug 30


After working in television for about 10 years I did something I had never done before. I made a documentary film. I completed the project, set up local screenings and had some radio press, it started being circulated in the film festival circuit, I was feeling pretty good. Then it went into DVD and digital distribution. Here’s a few online reviews of the film on Amazon.

As you can see, not many people liked the movie. So I failed at making a movie that people would like. big deal. I didn’t fail at...

making a movie

getting into film festivals

getting distributed

Some people did t like it. Oh well. Some people did. I can look back at these negative reviews and think that means I failed but in reality these rev are just someone’s subjective opinion. That’s it. Don’t let other people determine your worth. You are not a failure. You matter. You are important. Keep doing what you are doing. It’s important.
