3.2 Hurray for Hollywood
“Social Media & Youtube have become a natural part of Corporate America’s marketing
and branding strategies. Reaching out to millions, at relatively no cost.” Andrew, Film
Student San Diego State University
I use to complain about overpriced movie tickets and I was left uninspired to go to the
movies. Recently, however, I started hanging out with some mentors and friends that
were big into movies and the lessons they hold. If I looked at it logically, I would spend
$10 to $20 to just be entertained for two hours. It appeared that I could just watch TV
for a lot less money. When we start to look at it as an organic experience, that is when
the magic happens.
Think about it, several years ago someone came up with an idea and they acted on this
idea. Then they put all their energy into manifesting their dreams of getting this movie on
the big screen. At one point, when they were about to quit, they caught a break, then
all the pieces came together. Even at this point, the challenges really start to happen
because they are exposed to the challenge of the film losing its integrity. At all cost they
push through again, again and again dealing with different personalities to bring this art
to the big screen. After years with dealing with contracts, agents, actors, directors and
unseen forces their dream finally is achieved. We can all learn from someone like this and
I bet you would like to interview them…How valuable would that be to your business?
What could you learn from this amazing journey?
If you are like most people, sitting down with these film makers would be dream or
you could just see the movie for $10-$20 bucks. Next time that you go to a movie ask
yourself, Why am I here? How can I stay present over the next two hours to learn every
lesson I need to learn? And after the movie, ask yourself, How can I leverage these
lessons to impact my business?
