IN SESSION WITH SINITTA MONERO
I remember it like it was yesterday, May 2008; I had graduated, ready to take over the world. The goal; To be a famous film director who had one box office hit and one box office flop. Failure keeps you humble and motivated.
So, the journey begun. Back-to-back internships, work experience opportunities and loads of unpaid, unnecessary hours of labour all for the love of being creative and believing. I wasn’t just put on this earth to pay bills and die! I had hope that eventually the features, the shorts, the corporate jobs, the 9-5 and the random 1st AD interview at the bus stop would eventually pay off. What can I say? I was working harder, not smarter.
Looking back, what I needed at the time was someone to provide me with the knowledge, advice, and guidance I needed to flourish in this industry and let me know this industry is for someone like me. You will be surprised at the number of times I was told it wasn’t.
