During pre-production HELL becomes a reality… but just remember this and make every decision based on this fact and nothing else: It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about you. It only matters what YOU think. And if you are willing to let them think whatever they want to think–about anything, even about you–then you will be able to hold your thoughts steady with who-you-really-are; and you will in time feel good, no matter what.
If you are at a crossroads…revisit your vision and reasons for even embarking upon making the film in the first place and you will recenter yourself and make sound decisions. Do not make decisions out of haste or because you are emotionally distraught. Stay on the lonely path and fight for what you want.
