My name is Scott and welcome to my corner.
Throughout high school I honed my craft—video—and created hilarious and spectacular things. I was told by so many people they were amazing and great and funny and I was definitely the next Stephen Spielburg. Then I went to film school.
Everyone in that first video class? They had honed their craft—video—and created hilarious and spectacular things. They were told by so many people that they were amazing and great and funny and they were definitely the next Stephen Spielburg.
The thing to remember is that art—whether it be drawing, video, sculpture, poetry, music, whatever—is a skill. Practicing will indeed make you better. But no amount of practice will ever change *you* and the way you think. From a “skill” perspective, you might be completely equal to another artist, but the things you each create will be wildly different.
Don’t stop creating because someone is better than you, because they’ll never be you—and that’s the most important part of your art."
