I am currently on numerous film projects right now and in development on at least FOUR! So that means tons of phone calls, option agreements, lawyers, meetings, rewrites, paperwork, budgets, LOI's and just HUSTLING! I have met some AMAZING ppl, producers and financiers these past few months. It still humbles me how quickly God answers prayers.
My prayer was that the Lord will help me to take my career to the next level and get on bigger budget projects. To remove the ppl in my life who meant me no good, who didn't have good intentions towards me and to replace them with ppl who do & will. And I mean, He did exactly that AND THEN SOME!
And to see how fast the Lord did it too, makes you even more aware of the fact that God not only hears, but He answers. And when you are assured that He listens, hears and answers....it just REALLY HUMBLES YOU! Because I know I'm not worthy of this great gift of having access to the Most High God. That I can come before the throne and He holds me in the palm of His hand.
I have had amazing support and encouragement from ppl who I have just met while unfortunately not the same from ppl who I thought I was pretty tight with. But that was the prayer right?? The signs were there all along which is why I lifted my voice up to the Father to ask to reveal the truth of ppl to me and HE did. So who do you get upset with? Them or myself? Myself obviously, I can't get mad when ungodly unsaved folks do exactly what they are supposed to be doing right? I've been holding that knowledge in front of me. All I can do is keep it moving and hopefully while I'm moving, I'm reflecting God's grace. No bitterness, no anger, no judgement, no negativity. JUST TRUTH AND MORE PRAYERS! Because it's only by the grace of God that I'm no longer in the world.
The projects that are in Post are moving along quite nicely.
I just saw a rough cut of THE GRACES and ohhhh emmmmm geeeee (OMG) is all I can say! It looks AMAZING and I'm extremely excited with what Salli & Tommy did. WOW pretty much sums it up. So we've already started submitting to a few festivals. Crossed fingers.
THE LAST FALL is getting a lot of buzz and being approached by several distributors. Matthew has submitted to several festivals as well.
SAVE ME is looking pretty durn good too and we've submitted that to almost the same festivals. Lena found a great sound design guy and the music is FANTASTIC!
Most of the good festival deadlines have just approached or just passed so all of these projects we were racing to get them submitted.
I think that would be kinda cool if I had two or three projects in the same festival. Hmmmm....maybe I will pray about it! LOL!!
Jokes aside, desires aside, my Lord and my God is with me on this roller coaster ride and there is TREMENDOUS comfort in that.
I pray for my dear baby cousin 'RuRu' who is battling cancer and has a young son who is scared and confused. I pray constantly that she will continue to find peace and strength in the Lord to get her through whatever life throws her way.
Prayers up for my father in law as we continue that journey, maybe the Lord will answer our prayers that he will answer the call to salvation and give his life to the Lord.
NOW THAT WILL BE AMAZING!!
"O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who delight to fear thy name; and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man Neh 1:11 (ASV)
