An outstanding post from Luke this week to inspire you on marketing yourself, your scripts, films and/or books online – number 4 is genius! Thanks, Luke! Enjoy … I’ve always been terrible at marketing. The worst. But I have to say, with so many amazing resources out there, I’m getting better. ‘I just wanna write, man.’ ‘I don’t wanna sell my soul.’ ‘I’m an artist dammit!’ ^^ Words I’ve probably said at some point.
