Josh the CEO of DJ Factory's take on viral marketing,

I've had some small successes with viral marketing. The biggest thing that I have noticed is that timing is so important. I shot a video of the Kaskade riot on my cellphone while I watched from across the street at hooters and by the end of the day I had 20,000 views. There were better videos shot but because I immediately posted it on FB it got picked up by Huffington Post and BAM!

Two inspirational quotes from the director Byron Q,

I thought I had it all figured out, while all u cats chase girls and money, I was chasing a dream and achievements. but in the end, it was the same thing, I was defining myself by achievements and my drive towards success, and I kept feeling unfullfilled b/c no matter what I did, there was always others ahead of me, doing more than me, better than me, more talented at filmmaking, got more awards,got more recognition, got distribution deals, no matter how far you go with your career, if you're not in tune with your soul and who you are, you'll never be satisfied, you'll keep wanting more and more. I'm not gonna stop chasing my dreams, or nothin like that, but now it's for different reasons and what I realized is that I can actually go harder and more focused than I was when I was feeling anxiety and stress over not achieving certain things which overall affected my mind and took away my creativity and inspiration. Now i'm at a moment when I am starting to feel the most inspired and fearless in a world full of people trying to drag you down. nobody can stop me now, not even myself.

Success is not defined by how many records you sell or how many people like your movie, it's about how many lives you have affected in a positive way and how deep you go with your relationship with your own soul. Most ppl are not at peace with themselves, and look towards external things for fullfilment, but true happiness and peace and compassion for others can only be reached when you look inside yourself and come to terms with your own demons.

Inspirational quote from Max Pote the man behind Protohype,

there's no better feeling in the world than working hard as fuck for something, and feeling like it's all worth nothing...then having it finally pay off. if there's one thing i've learned in the past 2 years, it's ditch a normal life and take a risk on something that you're passionate about. never ever ever ever give up. hard work will always pay off in one way or another. and keep swaggin like a dragon. PEACE
