You can’t just write a great film. You have to first write 17 bad films, THEN you can write a great one.
Some might call that sad, but I think it’s the truth. The first thing you make in any field isn’t going to be great. Neither are the following few. The only way you’ll ever get to the gold is if you put in the work.
If you accept the fact that we have 17 bad films in all of us, your job is to get them out so one day, number 18 can shine.
Thank you Arian Moayed for this idea.
