BURN THE SHIPS!
- sitiado -
I received a package in the mail today, and it turned out to be one of the coolest and most meaningful surprise gifts that I’ve ever gotten.
An old actor friend of mine (Hus Miller) and I have made a couple of short films together over the years, but we’ve always talked about doing a feature. For years, we kept trying to come up with the right thing.
I finally finished a script for us called Sitiado earlier this year, and we made the firm commitment to each other to make this movie. We’re both playing leads in it while he is also producing and I am most likely also directing.
I was always inspired by and kind of lived my own life by a story that I’ve read about the ancient Greeks and Romans and some other warrior cultures from the past who would arrive on enemy beaches and then burn their own ships as a symbol of no turning back and of no other option but victory by moving forward. I emailed him about this story and we agreed that there is no turning back now.
That night, he got back to me to tell me that he had gone ahead and purchased and started an LLC/Production company as well as a website called, “Burn the Ships!”
This is seriously is a gift that I’ll always treasure.
