His Journey in 1 TAKE!

His pursuit of the filmmaking craft was an arduous journey, scarce in formal courses and guarded by industry veterans. He scoured bookstores, collected knowledge from Barnes & Noble, then discovered a treasure trove on Amazon. Venturing into YouTube University and later embracing online courses, he found valuable yet unstructured knowledge at the cost of time and effort. However, these resources lacked organization, leaving him craving more insights.

Despite his expertise in filmmaking, he remained stuck in a 9-to-5 paralegal job until a sudden opportunity emerged.

 

Entrusted with building a top broadcast studio and channel, his success soared in a short span but ended with an abrupt dismissal, igniting his desire for entrepreneurial control. Guided by faith, he transitioned to entrepreneurship, immersing himself in entrepreneurial content until finding inspiration in "Rich Dad Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki. Empowered by newfound wisdom, he set out to create a framework designed to elevate and frast-track the indie filmmaker journey. This framework aimed to be a lifeline for indie filmmakers navigating the industry's turbulent seas. However, his dedication to developing this platform took a toll on his health and finances, leading to a pause for self-care and client work to manage life's ebbs and flows. Despite these challenges, he persisted, guided by faith through months and years, leading to this moment today.
