Monday, I attended my first-ever Film Festival, the CineFlix Festival, held in D'Iberville, Mississippi.
Actor/Director John Schneider, as part of John Schneider Studios, ran the four-day event of diverse movies and documentaries.
Before I go on, yes that John Schneider, best known as Bo Duke on the Dukes of Hazzard TV series (I didn't bring it up to show my age. Plus, I heard he's grown tired to being referred to the old 80's show).
I mainly used the festival as a learning experience to seek out advice from John about the film business.
At the same time, I met another filmmaker/artist named Trent Dion Soto. I also picked his brain about making films.
Their advice was simple: write and get a film made by someone who's done movies before.
Wish me luck in the next step.
