Indeed, says Pacino. You are as good as the risk you take. If you see the handwriting on the wall go for it, if it’s connected to you and you feel passionate about it “Do it” but, if it comes from someone else then you may want to refrain. I’ve done about six films that I paid for myself, I was told not to do it, I should have listened he jokes, but, I needed to do them, and as I look back on them, although many may not agree, for me, they are good films and I’m happy with my work.
Marwan Granville CEO & Founder of Pendulum Studios understands all too well and agrees with Pacino when it comes to developing and creating content that you can stamp as a viable reflection of yourself. Through an observing lens Marwan exclaims, I am always working on my brand, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with others. In a room full of powerhouses, I’ll share with Al Pacino, just as I share with the quiet unknown lady in the back of the room who looks unassuming but turns out to be someone I can use on my projects. There’s no respecter of person, we are all relevant.
Al agrees with Marwan that people are important to your success and to have intimate settings like these where everyone engage and share their experiences are therapeutic. You never know what people are going through, here’s some advice for hard working people he says. “When in a rut go somewhere else and do something else it changes perspectives and its refreshing”.
This hit home for Penny Chohaili Owner of First Search a SEO Company out of New Zealand who shared a similar story of unplugging, sacrifice and risk in order to build a better brand. She now has one of the fastest growing companies and know that it’s important to establish mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with people, so being on stage with Al Pacino, traveling and sharing her product knowledge keeps the zeal needed to stay on top of her craft.
There are so few gems as Al Pacino whose career in acting spans more than fifty years. His accolades are numerous ranging from an Oscar, Emmy, Two Tony’s, a Golden Globe and so on. He is dubbed the “Triple Crown of Acting”.
Anyone can reflect on their favorite Pacino film and what it means to them personally because there are so many to choose from. Artistically he would say he’s grateful for the freedom he has been given to go into his imagination. Reflectively, he says God and family, as he shares a thought from a good friend of his. “Memories and Imagination is a form of survival, so regret nothing. This is a grasp on reality when all else is failing” so don’t worry about me. Humbly, he says “You the People are the best of all, so when dealing with one another, let your points be honest and sensitive but not cruel. If any foreshadowing can be done to disarms and set expectations, it never hurts, this was a very effective tool for him in acting.”
