This maybe controversial BUT in my opinion people of a religious persuasion often struggle when they endeavor to break into the arts.
I know actors that refuse to swear and writers that insist on having a Jesus or a priest in every scene.
Quite simply, it’s ridiculously stupid.
If your faith is real, then it exists in the slums, in the mansions, in the brothels and the bars, there is no place on earth where it cannot be found.
Real faith is gritty, it isn’t sanitized or purified in anyway. It’s the dirty, filthy, messy truth that involves people just like you and me.
Don’t hide the truth, don’t cover the dirt, be humble and don’t judge anyone… especially your own characters.
