One of the hardest things in the world of film making is the dreaded tech mishap. I woke up this morning, early for me, only to find my laptop not turning on. The laptop with all the footage of my latest skit on it. As well as the script for the next skit and the first chapter for the new issue of Warzone Tales.
It is beyond stressful and can really knock you off your game sometimes. But I think I managed to fix it. It only cost me like a half hour of my time. Sometimes stuff likes this makes you want to scream.
But you can't allow events like this to hold you down. You have to shake it off and figure out how to do what needs to be done, even with the setbacks in place. That is part of what makes someone a great director.
P.S. I fixed my laptop, thank God!
