A Tip for Moonlighting Filmmakers

The starting line

If you’re at the beginning of your career as a filmmaker like me, and especially if you have a family to support, you’ll likely find yourself needing to do your creative work at the end of an already busy day. It is HARD to get going when your tank is already on E. Adam Pash over at Lifehacker writes about those critical moments between giving up and wasting your night, and deciding to get up and get creating.

The key, according to Pash, is just getting started. He makes a deal with himself that if he logs just 10 minutes on his project, he can go back to wasting his night away, guilt free. More often than not he finds himself getting caught up in a burst of productivity—always a welcome event in a moonlighter’s life. If you find yourself in the same boat, hop on over to Lifehacker to read the full article. I know I need all the help I can get.
