Tip#461: Have Fun In The Process - Bowfinger

I love watching movies AND I love making movies. I recently edited a new short video promo for my lectures, keynotes and seminars. Every step of the process was a joy even though I sifted through 6 hours of footage from 2 cameras of a 3 hour workshop. In the end it was a passion and therefore so much fun creating a 4 minute video.

The fun I have editing videos for myself and for other speakers reminded me of the filmmaking fun of the movie Bowfinger. I always loved this film especially now that I'm looking for a new business team to help take my motivational services to the next level. This film helps me to visualize the fun, dedication and creative problem solving skills of a team achieving a huge goal.

Bowfinger 1999

The comedy Bowfinger is about a down-and-out filmmaker named Bobby Bowfinger (Steven Martin) who goes after an impossible dream of making a movie with a famous action star Kit Ramsey (Eddie Murphy) without him knowing he is being filmed. Bowfinger gathers together actors and production people who all believe in Bowfinger's vision even though they do not know his whole moviemaking process.

Murphy also plays another character named Jiff and his first scene always amazes me with his endearing performance of a sweet naïve nerd. Jiff is just one character amongst others that come together and create something spectacular. It reminds me that big goals can be achieved with the help of like-minded people AND that you can have a lot of fun in the process!

I have been reading a bit of your blog - it is very cool and interesting. Something of the stuff you have said sounds like you had read the book called the secret - can you reccommend any similar books? All the best.

BTW. After reading your review of Kung Fu Panda 2 - I am going to go out and watch it...
