The problem is, I am not ready to start a new project. GASP! My gosh! Did I just say that? I must be out of my mind! Not ready? Who says that? Who thinks that? Oh, let the whispers start! First off, let’s define “ready”.
My battery is drained. Spent. Dead. I have nothing in me to start. No, I am not depressed. It’s nothing like that. Simply put, creatively, when you put so much of yourself into project after project then add on top of that life outside of your projects, you cannot go on like this forever. One day you wake up and you realize your film sucks to high heaven or you just hate what you are doing. I don’t want that to happen. To avoid this I have decided it is time for me to take a much-needed break in 2018. This break means more time with my family and doing the things I really enjoy like hiking and traveling without working.
It does not mean I won’t keep my eye open for causes, but I will be reevaluating the work of Caring For The World Films and our future. CFTWF will have more films. The change will be on the subject matter. Will we continue with NGOs or move on to causes? We have grown so much over the last 11 years and our reputation has earned us respect of the industry. We can choose our own path and we will.
I cannot wait to read The STACK, but I am really looking forward to the recharge. I will see you in 2019 with hopefully a new project ready to go.
