This was a shot that I went solo on, it was the last minute and my name was mentioned. I jumped at the opportunity to do something on my own... Read More >>
Joseph Woods — Kansas City Film Connection
I first want to say that I've have always dreamed of doing something in the movie industry. I cannot remember the first film I ever saw, but I can remember the impact that it had on my life. An American Tale was not only a great piece of art but the cataylst for my metamorphsis. I was at a crossroad in my life whether to do the thing that I was more comfortable with or step out of the box. I decide to do the later, and resign from my comfortable paying job and into a very risky but rewarding enviroment.
The film connection has given me quite a way of looking at film. They have made me expand my horizons, and awake my sleeping dream of being a screenwriter. I have without even knowing it been a student of film. I cannot tell you the vast amount of films I have seen. This program has renewed my energy and vigor. One of the things I like about the program is the honesty. My mentor Jon Trozzolo from day one has been a great supporter and advocate for me on my journey.
Movies have been my hobby. I have admire such acclamied director like Steven Spielberg to Quentin Terrantino. I love how movies can make us feel, and effect our lives for better or worst. I cannot count the number of movies I've seen in my life from, but I can tell you the once I admire. A true artist must be broken down to his essential parts then put back together again. Movies are expression and I have a lot to express.
I believe you have to take chances in life and not look back. I'm not looking back but I will look forward to the journey ahead and see where I end up. I love to be challenged and engaged and movies have always done that to me. I seek to be one of the few to say yeah I'm that guy.
