The Mom Syndrome is Alive and Well - Scenario #3

Don put up some screen grabs of Shiro's Head on and within a few minutes he was getting swamped with questions of interest from fellow indie filmmakers and the like on the who, what, when, where and how of the movie.

So here it is: the antidote to the "Mom Syndrome" - you should have realistic expectations from the audience/viewer/market in regards to the type of project you're involved with.

Know you're target market/demographic and take it to the people who you know will have it. Don't sell the refrigerator to the kind eskimo and expect him to jump up and down in amazement. If you keep your projects strong, interesting and honest - you'll find your market. If your project's great, they'll find you.

Or...get a real job!
