I have just received the news that I was not awarded an important grant to produce my documentary. In learning this, I have decided to no longer continue working in video production. For me, the decision was a make or break crossroads.
I will continue to write and provide voice overs however, effective immediately, TV and film production will cease to be a service that I will offer or pursue. I personally have invested over a decade of my life and tens of thousands of dollars to share stories to make the world a better place. I have been beaten, insulted, cheated, threatened, and banned, in my attempts to share the good in people that are left in this world. It has been hard and uphill all the way.
Thus, as of today, I can no longer afford to invest my time and money in this line of work that has been my life for so many years.
