Hello Matthew,

Your passion and strive is very moving and motivating, please please please do not stop!!! More grease to your elbows!


go, matty!


Very nice change up there with the video. Continued blessings to you and the project. Have a great first day of production.


Love the honesty of addressing your concerns as a first time director of a feature film. Looking forward to hearing about the next step in this series. Much blessings on Monday.

Thanks for sharing Matty! I’m going to pass this onto my folks so we can spread the word about all of the wonderful projects you have going on…Keep up the great work! I’m proud of you!


Very inspiring and true when it comes to thinking that filmmaking is this big, mysterious monster. There is no perfect director or process. I think you’ll do great! Also, it’s normal and good to feel the stress, but the good kind. Thanks again for sharing. :)


I hope you can find time to go back to WRITING your entries, Matthew. Pay no attention to “misspellings” and such. The prose style of your entries has a crackling energy that is really appealing (I, too, hope you can publish your journals), and you’re able to include more detailed and in depth information and commentary than when you’re on camera as you were here.

I’ve really enjoyed this series—I know you’re going to get even busier starting Monday, but I sure hope you can try and find time to write your entries moreso than on camera.

Good luck on Monday!


Hi Matthew
