Trust & Try combines the two major requirements for success. You have to Trust in your idea, your work and your goals. The path of realizing this will be rough. You’ll meet people who are not able to see what you see. But you’ve got your own vision.
And to pursue it, you need to Try.
Surrounded by talented directors our goal is to create unique films.
