All the hard work that I had invested in for a client dissolved in a single phone conversation. "We just don't have the time and energy to continue these projects, and I think it would be best if we brought this in house." That was tough for my ego to hear from a client for whom I had just spent the last several months working for tirelessly, but it was a fortuitous wake up call. “Genevieve, what the fuck are you doing wrapping yourself up in such a project when you know you need to get back to your true focus.”
I had a few weeks of what am I going to do now, I suck, shit, I am a loser. But during this lull, I found myself behind the camera again, and re-seeing my projects with a different perspective. Sucking and shitting can sometimes be a blessing in disguise.
