Prologue Profiles

An hour from now I'll have a horrid thought about how horrible I am and how [awful] my writing is and then I'l just get back to square one. So I think it's just fighting myself, how hard will I fight myself to get things done? - The hez of Travis Tate

Travis is currently at Stage 2 on the Escalation of Actualization scale. He knows he wants to be a successful filmmaker but hasn't gotten his dreams off the ground.

The only thing in Travis' way is hez, which is hesitation as a result of being scared to take action.

Travis gives Grade A excuses like:

• I want to know my style better

• I need a mentor

• I'm not confident

• I want to change things up and move to a new city

• I don't have the right ingredients

• I hope the day comes when I'm ready

• I'm excited now but I'm going to sabotage myself later

• And the all around classic, I don't know

After our conversation Travis is now on his way to making his original web series, Black Mountain, where he's created 2 teasersa fundraising page and most importantly, has begun to film.
