You had a breakdown after you're second short movie. What happend?
I appreciate you all sharing your personal feelings with me. It really helps.
Here I am, close to the retirement of my real job... And honestly I am unsure if I have the courage or energy to make filmmaking a viable money making venture. A hobby.... Maybe, if I can afford retirement... But I will still need to have a day job.
Hopefully that job will be flexible and not time consuming. Or maybe I'm just going to need to find a way to merge the two?
I can't predict the future by any means, but my mindset is to get my passion and artistic creations done by any means.... There's a part of me that doesn't feel like I've sacrificed enough or done enough. Maybe there is more in there somewhere? I just need the right amount of experience and drive?
I don't really know.
Here in Nederland people that are working on music videos don't make much money because musicians are poor even when there good. Weddings ... I would look for a mate that wants to teach you and needs a second shooter. Corana won't be forever. But jeaaaa... you have to do what works for you. It's hard to focus in these dark and depressing time's. The most important thing is...Where here to listen to you.
How about drone videos for realtors? Big bucks. Shoot, edit, add their realty info, done. I would never want to deal with wedding planners or brides/grooms. Make some realty contacts that keep calling you back. Plus, the industry is there with covid. People are moving, etc.
It would be a treck, but if the pay was good enough, it would be fine. I've been wanting to go and shoot the ice caves for a while now.Not sure if you are near Door County but I imagine there's lots of possibility there. With all the lakes and lake lots and homes etc.
