You read it, right! I'm so grateful to say, Occupation Rotation won Best Web Series Episode in the Eurasia International Monthly Film Festival, in their July nominees!
Hi guys! Welcome back! Today I finally get to share with all you beautiful people, my progress report!
“It is better to try and fail than fail to try.”
So for those who don't know, I created a web series pilot for my graduating thesis project, and it's probably one of the most stressful things I've done recently. Producing, writing, and starring in your own project, is difficult, because you second guess yourself,it's a lot of starting over again, and again, then on shoot day, where the only thing left for you to do is to wear the Actor hat, while you let your co-producer takes it from there, is almost impossible to hang up the rest of the hats. HOWEVER, we did it! Not me, we! I honestly couldn't have done it without my amazing cast, and crew!
My new web series is called, ‘Occupation Rotation’ it’s about an off-beat Corrie Trainor who attempts to find her place in society, one job at a time!
The message I’m trying to convey as an artist is that failure is a part of life; it doesn’t mean that we should stop trying; but we should reroute and try an alternative. I think the story is very relatable because I think everyone on the planet goes through the motions of trying to find what is right for them, and what their passion is, their “calling”. That’s what I’d specifically want to explore in this series. The big decisions we all face trying to find our niche, what we’re good at, and where our place in this world is.
Occupation Rotation won Best Web Series Episode for the pilot in the Eurasia International Monthly Film Festival! We have also screened in at the Direct Monthly Online Film Festival, The Webisode Film Festival, and Rome Independent Prisma Awards, who selected us as a finalist in their Best Web-Series / TV Pilot category too!
Once again, I couldn't have done this without my fabulous cast & crew: Ali-Han Ibragimov, Sylvia Maria, Jazmin Hamilton, Rachel Gordine, Yijia Xu, Raiyah, Brown, Victor Alarcon, Brian Lau, and Robert Chuck!
