The leap from one tier to the next, creatively speaking, is probably one of the most challenging things an artist can face. For filmmaking, I would say its even more so due to its inherent nature of being a collaborative art form and more costly. Its hard to convince people to invest their time and energy on you without having the work of that caliber already under your belt. So what do you do? You perform magic. You take a $1,000 video and make it look like a $10,000 video and hope that no one is any wiser. Something I’m currently facing. Wish me luck.

When WILD STRAWBERRIES was nominated for an Oscar in 1960, Ingmar Bergman wrote this letter to the Academy.

What a boss.
