and right away I submitted it to several screenplay festivals and fellowships. Not only did it NOT get selected but it didn’t even place in the top 400 in one of the larger fellowships.
I shared it with my associates and many of them were floored by the originality and creativity. I knew that I had a great film on my hands so I filmed it with my own money. I still receive a ton of ridicule and negative criticism but I don’t give a sh*t. I’m committed to making a Harvested film every year for the next 5 years. If it doesn’t blow up by then, then I guess the doubters and critics were right.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS PARTICIPATED IN OR SHOWED LOVE TO THIS FRANCHISE 🙏🏾
