That being said, I'm thankful for job security and having the opportunity to work consistently. And as much as I miss having my own time to do things, especially write, the little kid in me is excited that some of the things she dreamed of long ago have come true. Namely, that I (the grown-up big kid) work in the film and TV industry.
Some things in life are meant to be, but very few things happen by accident. I worked hard to make things happen for myself, but I very much believe in dreams-- especially little kid dreams.
As a kid, I used to hold a tape recorder to the TV screen and record the music of the logo intros to movies. Then, I'd play the music back, close my eyes, and pretend that I was working in the movies. I could be acting, directing, writing, producing or behind-the-scenes. It didn't matter. I just wanted to be a part of it. That's what mattered most. The dream that I could be a part of it, too.
And now I am. So if any aspect of your kid-like dreams has become a reality, congratulations. You're doing what you're meant to be doing. And if those dreams have faded, brush 'em off and get crackin.' There's still time... to live out your dreams no matter who you are.
Here are a few of the logo intros that I remember fondly from childhood. Even today, I can still identify many studios and production companies solely by their intro music.
