Robert McKee’s Story Seminar

I’m not even sure where to begin…

I dream of being a filmmaker. For now, I’m a photographer.  And lately I’ve had an unshakable desire to pursue filmmaking again. Then this book came in the picture, and now I’m really not comfortable with things.

One of the decisions I made was that I need to attend one of Robert McKee’s Story seminars.  The only problem is the timing.  He only does two seminars a year in North America.  The first one is wrapping up today (likely as I am typing this); the second one happens in New York City this week.

When I first saw the schedule two weeks ago I looked at my calendar and my wallet thinking it probably won’t happen this year, but I haven’t been able to get the thought out of my head that I need to go.  I honestly can’t tell if it’s an act of faith or selfish ambition, but at very least I feel compelled to let my thoughts out.  Maybe God will use this simple post to encourage someone else, or make a connection, or kick me in the pants, or, or or…. who knows.  Either way, I’ve got to do something with this desire to make films, and this is a small step in that direction.
