One of the worst things to do if you want to become a director, actor or screenwriter (or anything really) is to talk about how much you want to do it. Because the more you're talking, the less you're doing. If you really want it, you should be doing something. Now. Yes, I know, we're all lazy. It sucks to actually do something, but you have to. Otherwise, you'll be one of those guys. Who talks. And doesn't do.
As for me, I'm working on writing a web series that I hope to work on late spring/early summer. I'm trying to connect with people to get opinions on the script/act/help work on it. Also, I'm rationing money off my paycheck to build a budget for it.
So what are you guys doing to build towards it? And, if possible, how can any of us help?
