My apologies, just seeing your message. Truly honored that you’re inspired by anything I’m striving to do. Thank you!
A cohesive working partnership may not be possible with your cousin. My experience has been that embarking upon a film project is an “intimate” experience that must be shared with people we feel good about working with. Communication is key! I’d speak openly and honestly with him / her about the importance of working together in a productive, peaceful manner. If that works, wonderful. If not, move on, wish him / her the very best, support their efforts, but work with people you work well with!
I’ll never doubt you again, Lord!
