Finally A Grown-Up?: The Sarah Kerlin Story
I HAVE MADE A DISCOVERY, YA’LL

I have always wanted to make documentaries.

But, now more than ever, I realized that I want to be a storyteller above all else.

I want to share my stories, my truth, with the world.

I want to be a storyteller like the ones on NPR’s Snap Judgement. They literally tour the world and tell stories for a living.

Serious stories. Funny stories. Personal stories.

I can do this. I can heal the hurt and pain that I am still experiencing by expressing it to whoever is listening,

At the same time, I can conquer my nerves when I speak in public.

And if I fail, I won’t be afraid of it and I’ll keep trying or I’ll find some other way to tell stories.

Maybe a documentary… Maybe a screenplay… or a vlog… or a webseries….

Who knows?

I’m not going to pigeonhole myself into one style of creativity. There are many ways to share your truth with others and I am going to find a way that works for me.

I need this.

Like many people in the film industry, my mind this week has been on Sarah Jones. Sarah was a second assistant camera (the person who transports cameras and lenses, helps the focus puller take measurements to get the focus right and slates the take, among other things) who was killed by a…

As I’ve mentioned on this blog before, I’ve been so consumed by fear to post my own work that I haven’t created anything since my senior thesis documentary in college. 4 YEARS AGO.
That’s a long time to not utilize your creativity. 
Well, I got fed up with my fear… Fed up with waiting for the right opportunity or for the right amount of money to come along.
I’ve been wanting to speak to college students for a long time about how TV/film sets work, how to behave, etc. I’ve wanted to let them know what it is like out in the real world and how you don’t necessarily become a director once you get out of college.
I wanted to do this, so I put the idea out there and I am doing an on-set workshop on February 26th at Hofstra University (my alma mater). Also organized a panel of folks that I’ve worked with to get their take on the business.
I decided to make a video to go with my presentation so I wrote/produced/directed the video that we shot yesterday. The above photo is from that shoot.
Over the last few years being on set, I would always dread the long days and count the hours until I could go home. I thought if I didn’t enjoy being on set, I was in the wrong business.
Turns out I’m not in the wrong business. I was working in positions that weren’t right for me.
Directing gave me this thrill that I’ve never felt before.
I want this feeling more often.
I believe that I have found a path that will get me closer to where I want to be.
I am meant to create content that will educate the audience. 
I am meant to direct. 
I am meant to produce.  
I can do this.

1) “You’ll find it when you aren’t looking!”

This is typically where your advice starts. ”It’ll come along when you least expect it,” is also “You’ll find it when you aren’t looking“‘s retarded little sister. You can all just go fuck right the fuck off after you say this to anyone who is single….

SORRY NOT SORRY, BUT I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS.
