Short Film of the Week: When Kids Grow Up
Marissa Labog of Upproductionz stars in this short film that she wrote and produced. It follows a single event with a woman named Mackenzie and a group of guys that are up to no good. The film is great and it feels like a small piece of a much larger film world, which Marissa wants to develop if she can. If you want to hear me interview Marissa, check out the Film Fervor Podcast Episode 165.
Essay of the Week: The Art of the Focus Pull
This week’s essay is about an essential piece of the visual storyteller’s toolkit: Focus pulling. If done right you wont notice it, it’ll glide your attention to the subject in a way that is visually pleasing and out of mind. If done poorly, it will throw you out of the experience and leave a sour taste in your mouth.
Quote of the Week: For a Positive Future Campaign
“Go the extra mile. It’s never crowded there.”
This week’s quote is very powerful to me. A lot of time, people just go through the motions and don’t really give everything they have when they’re doing their work. Going that extra mile is important and yes, it isn’t crowded at all. We all have to make sacrifices to do the things we love to do, weather it’s a financial sacrifice, a time sacrifice, or emotional sacrifice, and those who are willing to go that extra mile, put in that extra work, who are willing to do whatever it takes to succeed, those are the people who are going to get things done.
