No Limits No Boundaries

If you’d have told me last July that my latest project, No Limits No Boundaries, would’ve turned out the way it did, I wouldn’t have believed you for a second. I never imagined that I would’ve had the opportunity to show three different perspectives of those affected by the drug epidemic. This was by far the most challenging, most stressful, yet most enjoyable film I’ve ever made. I’d without a doubt do it again in a heartbeat.

 

Two of the biggest thing I’ve learned throughout the process of making this film:

These last two months, I’ve had more opportunities to film and photograph events than I’ve ever had before and I’m beyond grateful for the ability to be being able to do what I love, meet new people, and maintain my “normal” job while working on these side projects without completely losing my sanity. However, it requires a lot of time management – sometimes getting up early and staying up late – to keep up with everyday life and these awesome side projects.

In addition to this, it’s even more difficult to choose a topic that does just that and is interesting and motivating to you, the filmmaker. Here are two major internal indicators I believe are evident when you choose to cover the wrong documentary topic as a filmmaker.

5 Things Filmmakers Hate Hearing

  1. “Why do you want to make movies anyway?”

    Let’s just break this down. How much of your free time (or maybe even time you should’ve been spending being productive) have you spent binge-watching your favorite show? How many nights have you insisted on staying in because watching Grey’s Anatomy recorded just isn’t the same as watching it live? How many movies have you paid to go see throughout your lifetime? My point stands. I don’t just want to make movies, I want to be a part of the industry that consumes so much of our time and thoughts. I want to impact people‚Äôs lives through film. It’s one of the only industries out there that has such a substantial amount of power over us — I want to be a part of that.
