Hope and Excitement in a Busy Week
November 14, 2008 5:03 PM
It’s been such a crazy, busy week! NewTeeVee Live took place in San Francisco and the buzz was exciting. Great conversations have been taking place, everybody’s pumped about what’s to come for the future of television, and most of all, the approach and mindsets are more spot-on than ever.
Hollywood is truly full of brilliant minds, open enough to consider the bigger picture, and it is working for the business.
So what’s new with my projects?
Well, I’m getting a healthy dose of Good and Bad 101, from people who aren’t who they say they are to magical things that make me think about how lucky we all are to be able to do this for a living. I think it’s par for the course in the business, but it’s not without its own set of frustrations. It’s hard to know who is telling the truth, who can do what and who to get involved with.
I guess that’s in a way an exciting element of it all in some ways. You really never know what will happen.
Through it all, it’s certainly been hard to dash my hope and enthusiasm. I want nothing more than to see this project fly because I believe with all I am that it will inspire people and that’s exactly why I created it.
Is it inspiring network executives? I think so. I hope just one believes in our vision.
I absolutely believe it’ll resonate, not just with women, but people of all types, backgrounds, groups and orientations. After all, isn’t Hollywood the industry that can turn just about anything into something sensational?
I have confidence in the business. Let’s hope that, in the end, it will love my project.
Meanwhile, on the Web side, things are really happening. I’m about to start on a book project, so instead of focusing on a multitude of projects, I’m attaching to other people’s ideas and helping them make it happen, and then working on one to two very easy ideas on my end.
One thing I can say is that it has helped immensely to have the relationships I have. I don’t just mean in Hollywood but business overall. We’ll see what happens!
