Studying, Binging or Relaxing?

Studying, Binging or Relaxing

For the majority of last week I was on Amazon Prime, Netflix and TV. Was I studying or binging or relaxing?

Munnariv reached over 13,000 with just word of mouth publicity that me, my friends and family have been doing. But I believe it should have already reached an even wider audience. Which makes me feel inadequate, unsuccessful, sad, a failure.

During such times I zone out, so as not to think about failures. I watch films, read books and so on. And then miraculously things always start getting better. The same happened with my Tinder stories. As the film’s release got closer, I shifted my focus from trying to make a match happen. And then miraculously I started getting matches, out of nowhere.

Maybe all I am doing is distracting myself and stopping depressing thoughts from turning into reality. Or maybe I am subconsciously studying for my next feature film. Maybe I am in one of those states where I don’t have a particular direction. I am trying to relax into it. Such times are often followed by very active periods.

I just wanted you to know that I also often have these times when it appears as if I am not doing anything worthwhile. But most of these times, unseen by me, things are always happening. It’s only a matter of time that it starts appearing in front of me.

Hey Aspiring Filmmaker,

I debuted my film career making a feature film for ₹5 lakhs ($7,000) on an iPhone. I’d like to help you do the same. So I wrote everything I learned into a book. It is now available on Amazon, called The Indian Indie Film (or Make Your Film for rest of the world). Enjoy!
