Goran Working on a 10-day Prada Shoot!
Goran is continuously striving to be better: he is always learning, connecting, and appreciating the experiences, opportunities, and people around him. The videos are of him again in his element… giving us great behind-the-scenes as to what what the film industry has to offer. He even made a little montage video for his favorite 1st AC:
Got booked on a Prada job for 6 days plus 3 or 4 after so total of 10 and the rate is $500/day plus over time!
The DP on this shoot is an amazing friend of mine that I met a couple years ago on another shoot. I am learning and getting paid at the same time. Plus, I’m having a great time and making lots of connections. You gotta love it and it will happen for you.
That’s why now, I embrace it whenever I feel butterflies in my stomach or my nerves going out of control. I tell my self, “Aha, it’s time to grow”.
If you have someone you admire a lot, just ask yourself what would they do? And see what answer you come up with!
One big thing I learned from very successful people is not to just keep looking for next thing… next shining object out there, but to go back and refresh your memory of something that you already learned / know, and that will create a habit and eventually it will become a second nature which will be a signal for you to move to the next step.
I love to do that with books too! I don’t just read it once, I study it and go back and recompile everything I’ve learned.
Here is one of the amazing mentors I had a privilege to meet and work on many many sets. She is one of the most amazing 1st ACs I had a privilege to work with. Plus, she connected me to some amazing people that I am now good friends with, and got me a tons of jobs!
Because I appreciate her, I created a short video of her just as a small token of appreciation! Just a short montage shot from my phone.
What we have here from amazing Janet and all of the Mentors… is all so priceless. Take advantage of all aspects of this training and excel not only in film industry but also in life!
And another Fashion gig!
