THE STORY AND SERMON: Screenwriter/Director, John Doby, pulled me and some of the old crew together, added some new actors and we produced this short film for less than $200. I play the role of Hank, one of two losers that come into a windfall after the other finds a bag of money that belongs to a ruthless criminal. Jason W. Fuchs plays Jack and did most of the editing in the initial version of this short film. I re-edited the film and replaced all the original music and added the closing credits. Jason is ridiculously analytical, and was his usual self as a back seat director in my ear throughout Loot’s entire production process, which is partly how I learned to produce motion picture media. Jason explained the process and many of the nuances. For over a decade, he worked on hundreds of films as a successful Assistant Director in the NYC film industry.

In this version of Loot, I re-edit the episode, replace all the original music and sound effects and add the closing credits. Expenses: hotel room, bubble bath, champagne, red dye and corn syrup for blood, duct tape, strawberries and candy bars for the toilet scene.

Learning from ”other people’s brains” and the act of executing your plan each day, will eventually have you realizing your dream. We build. A brick a day soon builds a wall, and now we can all play handball. Build your dream each day. Murder your excuses and procrastination. Strangle them and bury them in the backyard. Choose to be free and go after what you want. Execute…and keep executing. In the words of my favorite business mentor, “Everything is steps.” Execute the first step, second step, next step and continue until you reach your dream(s). Want to make a film? Figure out the steps and begin to execute them.
