FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD
CARLOS GARCIA, JR.
FILMMAKER | CREATIVE DIRECTOR
“Fortune favors the bold!” It’s a popular phrase and one that was sewn into a medium banner that my wife gave to me before I left her for a year to take a new job in Oklahoma. I don’t know where the phrase originated from, a quick Google search will tell you that it originates from an African-Roman playwright named Terence. Regardless of where the phrase came from, it’s a statement that in our media industry, many have forgotten. I’ve traveled to Oklahoma for a Commercial Directing job in the hopes of finally getting a salary for what I love to do. And in some ways, that’s what happened, but working under the weight of a company that forgot about that phrase and instead chose to “follow” the fad and what’s safe, I found myself floating in the absence of true creativity and developing a product that other media production companies can follow instead.
Me, as I was cleaning our house and came across that banner, a lightbulb went off in my head. And so I was reminded that it was time to launch out into the unknown.

And I want to tell your story. I want to bring it to life with the boldness it deserves. After all, only the brave are remembered in history. Ask Terence.
