"They said I would never become a filmmaker! Well, look at me now!" I have been wanting to be a filmmaker since I was 8 years old. I am 35 now and I have been living in Los Angeles for 10 years making a living as a filmmaker and editor. To those who told me back in the days that it was too difficult for me to become a filmmaker I reply saying "look at me now, my first documentary has won awards in festivals all over the world and I've also been nominated for an Emmy!" You just have the believe in yourself sometimes and don't listen to negative voices. Follow your gut!
