WINNER of 3 Awards at the 2007 Elevate Film Festival
Note From Deb ~ !~ Mr. President was a short film that I produced for the Elevate 48 Hour Film Festival ~ I hadn’t been in production for almost 8 years, so I didn’t have a regular crew I was working with, I had no favors “to call in” and I had just moved and was having severe back issues! I said “yes” to phone call from Jeff Lester, a director I had worked with many years prior, only because I got the guidance to move forward with the project “after tuning in to Higher Self & Guides” because it didn’t make logical sense for me to do it at the time… here’s what resulted…
We got a great script, we had a full crew, (most teams of the festival had 5-8 people, we had about 25!) My dear friend, Kelly Gallagher came on board instantly to co-produce with me, between the 2 of us and our production manager, Yuri we got everything we needed. We all had a great time…and WE WON 3 awards in our category of short films!
My point in sharing this story is this…Even when you think the odds are against you…even when nothing makes logical sense for you to do something…make sure you “check in” with your guidance ~ because this one YES for me has brought more joy, more inspiration and even more media credibility than all of the years of producing commercials and music videos combined…why? Because “it was meant to be” AND because it emotionally moves people…it makes them feel good!
In the words of the NIKE …JUST DO IT!!
