I have really really bad news….. I’m going to keep making more and more movies of all types. I’m going to keep writing articles. I’m going to continue making my TV shows. I have no intention of slowing down in the slightest in my promotion of all of these things. If this bothers you, feel free and continue to whine and complain to anyone who isn’t me. I’m not interested. Got the latest issue of STUDENT FILMMAKERS MAGAZINE, and low and behold stills from one of my shoot are on the bottom of the cover, and the article I wrote was on page 8! Got several copies of this, plan on sharing with the actors who have their faces in print. I haven’t even attempted to write an article in some time, but I was asked to write for this issue by the editor.
Prepping for a greenscreen shoot tomorrow for the next Sonnyboo Podcast. This one will be fun. Been slacking on the greenscreen shoots since I’ve had so many location shorts for the Movie Cliché‘s to edit. I plan on spending my free time this weekend on some visual FX work too.
Things are trucking forward. For those that are somewhere between mildly and entirely annoyed with my online marketing – be wary. It’s only going to get worse. A lot worse. I’m just getting warmed up…. I haven’t even really started to do what I intend to do. So go ahead and Unsubscribe. Unfriend. Block away.
People seem very strange to me. On the one hand, I hear and see a lot of nonsense about “I hate that Peter John Ross! He sucks and all he does is post his stuff online all the time! He MUST think he’s the greatest thing on earth!” and then those same people, “Hi, I just saw you on a short online and I’d love to work with you…” or “I saw your camera work on this short online and I’d love to work with you.” – So what I’m supposed to take away from this is – I suck, but you want to work with all my actors and crew, because you found them talented from what you saw from all my marketing – which I should stop doing because, although effective, it bothers you for reasons you are not comfortable with confronting.
I suggest these complaints and conflict end where they begin – without me. I just got a final sound mix for another Movie Cliché! I’ve got at least 5 new FRAMELINES about to export. I’m only concerned with MAKING movies.
Keep this drama away from me. Can’t you see I’m workin’ over here? Apparently, because you’re bitching about seeing the work in too many places….
H8ters be h8tin’. I be chillin’ and making with the movie creatin’ ya’ll. All I know is that creating and promoting feels absolutely great. Try it and be less worried about me.
