On Perseverance: Women's Studies: The Movie

For those interested in making films, Lonnie and Cindy Martin's story is one of true perseverance and determination. On June 8, R-Squared Films' Big Bite Entertainment label will release their film Women's Studies. This after they've worked on it for about five years, maybe longer. They started up their own production company, Ningen Manga, and the film can be pre-ordered at Amazon.

I met them a few years back through a friend of mine, and I've heard their incredible story over the years. I completely admire their determination to finish this film and get it out there.

With so much involved in the making of a film, it almost seems like a crazy endeavor even to begin making one. With all the financing you have to acquire and set-wrangling you've got to go through just to even score locations to film in, unless you have huge backing it just seems like a nearly impossible project. Well, they've done it. They've gone through all that and now they have their first film.

I encourage you to take a look at these Web sites. Whether you're a fiction writer, poet, or filmmaker, you have to have this kind of perseverance to dream something big and to see it through.
