“Never mistake motion for action”

Written by:

Week 3: Monday July 20-Sunday July 27

Fairly slow week, but every day I get insight from conversations with people I work with that is shaping my career plans and life goals. Ernest Hemingway said “never mistake motion for action.” I love this quote and it seems relevant to this week and this post. Just because you are in motion, does not mean there isn’t action you can tend to. Getting used to a place or job can sometimes make you complacent, but the slow moments are really opportunities to stand out by taking initiative on projects or making the most of your time by getting to know your superiors/co-workers. Since everyone’s path is so unique in the entertainment business, hearing many different stories/paths has given me a better idea of which I want to travel.

a special film screening for the NYFA of Punchline and Q&A with David Seltzer at Warner Bro.s Studios. Some of his advice for up and coming filmmakers: be someone people want to work with, i.e. people skills are crucial, and take the time to study your craft, if possible, from every angle.
