Pick Your Filmmaking Team

As a filmmaker, your success relies on other people willing to help you realize your movie projects. The problem is, many would-be filmmakers surround themselves with toxic people.

The great motivational speaker Zig Ziglar always says, “You can’t fly with the eagles if you continue to scratch with the turkeys.”

And I believe this is true.

Take a moment and think of the people you spend the most time with. Are they helping you or hurting you? For some of you, the person you spend the most time with is your significant other. Is he or she supporting your filmmaking aspirations?

If not, then you have to make tough decisions.
