“It’s easy to tell fake reels from real ones.”
“You’re never going to be able to get people to actually do anything for free.”
“A bunch of amateurs getting together working on amateur projects will yield amateur results.”
“What could a person with little experience have to teach me? I’m an acting veteran!”
“If you’re good at something never do it for free.”
There are always naysayers.
But the fact is, whether Acting Upward is successful in the manner in which I hope it is or not, it will be successful in a way that the experience of working together provides value to people.
I’d rather set goals and push forward to meet them — and potentially fail — than listen to naysayers telling me all the reasons why something shouldn’t be done.
Because even in failure, we learn.
