As a freelancer, and a business owner, I'm doing fine :) The thing is, I want to start focusing more on my ultimate goals and attract jobs that are more in line with where I want to take my career as a DoP. I want to shoot the biggest and best Hollywood feature films....I want to shoot the next James Bond movie. I can see myself as Director of Photography for amazing television shows like Breaking Bad, or working on television commercials that are cleverly crafted and produced to the highest standards.
Ultimately, I want to work with people who place the up most importance on the craft of film-making, people who value team-work and demand the highest quality of skill sets and artistry. I want to be part of that team.
For me personally, I think about this every single day. But more importantly, I work towards it, every single day. So....the one thing I've noticed in this world is that for things to really start happening, you need to do two things.
1). Stop thinking and start doing.
2). Talk about your goals and start the conversation.
My best work has always resulted from collaborating with an amazing crew. I'm looking for people who share my values and invite you to join in on this conversation....or at least think about it to start with ;)
