We had the good fortune of connecting with Anthony Green and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anthony, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
When talking about “risks”, the first thing that comes to my mind is management. Risk taking is a never-ending factor in life. You can either avoid it, face it, or manage it. Most people choose the latter. When it comes to success, taking risks will be an obstacle that you must face with a positive attitude. As a film director, content creator, and ultimately as a creative, risk-taking is a BIG part of my career. New concepts, ideas, and locations might not have been used to constantly create BETTER quality content for my clientele if I was scared to get uncomfortable, lose my cool if something goes wrong or someone tells me “no”. New locations, gear, treatments, software, ideas all come with the risk of not being what you want or expect. That’s why I like investing in business. You can’t predict the future but you can anticipate the risk factor. It is better to manage risk than run from it. The higher the risk the higher the reward.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My art form is Film. What sets me apart from others is that I apporach each visual/project with the mindset of doing something creative that is new and captivating. Cameras are a lot more accessible than they use to be so having good equipment is no longer enough to keep you relative and booked. Although creating something new is always one of my main focuses, I am most proud of myself when I am able to create opportunities for other creative minds to learn new skills or gain extra income from helping me create. Where I am now professionally is because of my consistent study of my craft and networking with the right people at the right time. It was not easy at first I had to film a lot of FREE videos just so I could get comfortable with directing people on set and maneuvering my camera through small troubleshoot problems that could happen to anyone while filming. Overcoming this was not easy but my persistant determination to create and work for myself kept me afloat during rough times. Some of the lessons I have learned along the way from being a creative starts with one: never giving up on something I believe in, no matter what the outside voices tells me. Number two is that doing good Business is great but having better customer service will take me even farther. Number three is all about networking. It will open up doors for me and you that skills sometimes might not be able to. When the world looks at Brandnewflix I want them to see a innovative trustworthy company that they can trust to create new and meaningful content for them.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If I had a friend vist Atlanta, for a week I would definitely take them to a number of Hype and low-key resturant spots in the heart of the city! Definitely would have to go Cam Kirks studios and a few recordings studios where some of the worlds most famous artist create in. My weekends are ussaly spontaneous so we would have a great time partying no matter the month.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to give a big shoutout to the book rich dad poor dad for teaching me a life long principle about money and @paradymmusicgroup for there assistance in networking with top tier artist
