Shailla is passionate about helping artists achieve their career goals and enjoys watching the career growth of those she comes in contact with.
She wrote this book inspired by her years of experience getting various films into prestigious film festivals around the world, including her own films and films by many production companies that she worked for. This way she can help not only the filmmakers that are her friends already, but also all others around the world that she haven’t yet met.
Shailla is an award winning filmmaker, actress, writer and internet whiz. She is simply not the type that sits and waits. She goes for it!
She went from being an unemployed artist, to become “Festival Queen” as her film making mentor and film industry friends refer to her now.
She heard it all, from “you shouldn’t wear too many hats” or “you shouldn’t be a jack of all trades”, but nothing stopped her, she always had the “why not” attitude. She thought to herself, “if Robert Rodriguez can do it, I can do it!”.
Believing strongly that when you want something from the bottom of your heart, you have to go for it and do whatever it takes, as long as you’re doing the right things of course, and it doesn’t matter how many new skills you have to learn and sharpen, just do it.
She is very passionate about inspiring others and she is a strong believer that we all have within us the power to achieve everything we want in life, independent of where we came from, or what happened in the past, as long as we keep the light within our hearts, and look towards the future, and always have faith in ourselves, no matter what, we must keep believing, and keep going, and keep doing great work, and rising from the ashes again and again, and we can make the world a better place.
She is all about going the extra miles it takes to reach all goals in life.
