I’m applauding you right now. Thank you so much for caring so much about what you do, and having respect for the profession. Thank you for doing it right and allowing yourself to be an amateur/student and taking enough pride in your work not to jump the gun Into being for hire. Yay! I am not alone! I think you will go far. You have an eye, you have talent, and you can see where you fall short. I expect great things from you, and I hope things go really well with the directing, and you learn tons from your shoots coming up, and your critiques to follow.
