Have you seen some of the film festival competition? You aren't a failed filmmaker, your a success in progress. Just as you said. The fact that you made a film, failed your objective, then made another film about that film really shows something important. You love to make films, and travelling around the world of filmmakers for a decade or more, I have to say there isn't a more important trait you can have. So many make films for the wrong reason, and regardless of your current level of success, the passion you're demonstrating today is why I think you have a future.
