I've been freelancing for less than a month now. Though I never explicitly set out rules for what types of projects I would and would not do, I only applied for positions that aligned with my morals.
Just yesterday, I was offered a project that did not seem to match up with my personal values. What was a girl to do? Well, I chose to say no, thank you to that particular project. And I felt good about that decision.
|I love this! Find it here|
My roommate is a renaissance woman. She's a novelist, screenwriter, composer, and producer. She is the person who originally introduced me to this concept (back when I thought it didn't apply to me). Julia has a list of things she will and will not do in the entertainment industry, and she sticks to it.
We may have to pass on a few seemingly amazing opportunities, but all of the exposure in the world can't replace our artistic, and personal, integrity.
Do you have a manifesto of sorts? I would love to know what's on it, if you don't mind sharing.
Share the love,
