Random musings, observations, squeaks, whimpers and perhaps the ocassional rant. About what, I'm not sure.

Opportunity Masquerades as Hard Work...

Back in July I wrote about Pat putting the wraps on his new movie Milkmaids, and about he and Terry, their families and a bunch of other folks packing up and heading to Comic-Con in San Diego. Well, we heard this week they caught a huge break as a result… they’re starring in an Independent Film Channel (IFC) documentary called “The Comic-Con Chronicles”.

I’ll post the news release for later, but the short version for now is that these guys are going to be featured on national TV, on a channel that pumps into 40 million homes in the US. You can’t buy that kind of publicity…

I’ve often commented on the vision, dedication and plain old hard work it takes to pursue any creative venture. Like Thomas Edison once said, “The reason a lot of people don’t recognize opportunity is because it usually goes around looking like hard work”. So true in these guys’ case… hard work translates to opportunity, and I’m really happy for them!
