I am 24 years old. Ever since I was 10 years old, I have taken 5,000 photos and videos in my life. I have spent 5,000 hours studying filmmaking and photography. This is the 5,000th one. I can't show all of them because either they are personal, have been deleted, or are too boring. It has taken Thomas Edison 10,000 tries to get the light bulb and it has taken the Beetles 10,000 hours to be the best band there is. I have taken most of my pictures and videos in natural light.

I apologize you all, due to business rights and privacy and out of respect, I am unable to completely document my small town, as I do not have the credentials or experience required to document it completely and properly. The documentary project is "too ambitious". Although I can maybe document one small business instead. Oh and HGTV was already documenting my small town.

No worries. Sometimes I wonder if ZachGoodwin is a real boy or a character someone has created. With that said, I'll play along... I think the point of the "hometown" documentary was supposed to be a simple assignment to get you working on a quick and small film. So, I wouldn't worry too much about the demise of the project. But if there is a business or even an interesting person that would allow you to make a film about them and it intrigues you, then go for it.

I think the greater point you need to think about is that a filmmaker needs a film to make to be a filmmaker.

I always thought you wanted to be a narrative filmmaker, so why not spend your time making 60 second short films? Write it, cast it, shoot it and edit it. Then wash, rinse, repeat.

Good luck.
