As a screenwriter, I’ve been able to get into the zone known as “NO FEAR”. It took a few years, but it allows for so much freedom and I can only hope more people find it someday. On the other side as a producer, I’m also able to adopt this way of thinking. I first got into it when I decided to create my own opportunities. The first few films I did with my college roommate, Chad Bring. We approached each project with care and played it safe. This resulted in a lack of production design and over all presentation. After years of putting out films that I consider had so much potential, I’m ready to become fearless. You can’t be afraid to hear “no” or when in production meetings say the words “why not”. I put the project first because I wouldn’t produce it if I didn’t care. The way you think has to be on the end result and always have two plans, Plan A and B. ( I believe heavy in the power of back ups) I call this “NO FEAR” attitude of mine my “Ari Gold” gear.
This is going to be a big week. Not only will “Bus 1107” get a huge push forward and “Immortal Darkness” finally have a shooting location, but I’m going on South Dakota Public Radio on Monday, 6/18, to talk about “Punished Woman’s Lake”. The next update should be big. (Of course, this all depends on how much work I put in…”NO FEAR”)
