I think I'm too scatterbrained and disorganized to make a whole film
By saying that you're allowing yourself to be too scatterbrained and disorganized. Just say "I'm gonna make a movie. Period." and do it. Worked for me, and I don't even know what organized means. It's when you got an organ donor, right? They put a new kidney in, so your all organized again.
I'll second that sentiment. Like the ad folks hired by the billionaire say, just do it.
I have similar concerns about my drawing/sculpting abilities, Sarah, always have. My best friend the asshole from hell is the finest artist I've ever known, he can literally create whatever he wants in pencil, clay, ball point pen, whatever. Doesn't matter, he works the medium and creates gold. Fucker. But the jerk can be magnanimous too: he's told me ever since we were kids and he was drawing cartoon animals in the margins of his algebra homework to put Disney to shame (and I was drawing stick figures with boobs, natch)--just do it, words to that effect. Nobody gets better at something by not doing it. Sure there's God-given but beyond that there's simply elbow grease and a helluva lot of it.
Sorry if this got too pep-talky ("Win, Rocky, win!"), but realistically, looking at the filmic "product" out there, I'm pretty sure everybody
on this forum could make a decent movie, easy...well, with enough funding.
Uwe can be inspirational that way, there but for the caprices of fate go [insert Brickster's name here...like "Sarah"].
