For as long as I can remember, films have had a special place in my heart. There was always something awe-inspiring about going to the movie theater, sitting down in a seat in the center of the row, and letting the big screen mesmerize me as it captured my full attention. Nothing could ever replace the magic and inspiration I felt when I watched good films. One of my favorite pastimes is to watch films in the theater by myself. I would say, the big screen and I have always had a special relationship.
As the years passed, I found myself desiring a change more and more. I no longer wanted to be just a consumer of films. I wanted to be a maker of films. For a long time, I dreamed of having my own film studio. I just didn’t know how to get there, because back then I thought that the only way to do this was to have a lot of financial resources.
Thankfully, I know now that that is not true. Especially with today’s technology, I learned that I did not need a lot of money to make my dreams a reality. However, what I did need were drive, determination, and uncompromising passion to make it happen. Most importantly, I had to take action, no matter how scary it was… I had to be willing to fail and throw away my pride for my chosen journey.
And that is ultimately what this is… a journey. It is not about success. It is not about proving a point to anyone either. It is about the walk, or the jog, and breathing in the crisp air from the pine trees that say hello as I pass by them on the trail of my chosen career.
So this year, I decided to finally launch my own film studio so I could make films… and made films, I did.
And tonight, on this beautiful, snowy Christmas Eve, I wish to show you the official intro logo of my Film Studio EISSEJ Films. This was a labor of love by two designers who turned my vision into reality. I am extremely proud of what they did. I hope you like it as much as we loved making it.
This is only the beginning.
With Love, Jessie
