Take The Shot. We All Die Screaming.

I realize Kevin Smith isn't everyone's cup of tea. However, I watched one of his Q&As last night on Netflix and he gave a speech that really resonated with me as someone that is driven to create.

If you've ever made something, or if you've ever thought about making something, I implore you to watch this video. It moved me and inspired me. I hope it does the same for one of you.

That was pretty damn awesome. Its so easy to be cynical,in my weakness and frustration I fell back into it so much, but its much more gratifying to constructive and positive. thanks for posting.

ImpendingRiot responds:

Not a problem dude, glad you liked it. I completely hear you about the cynicism thing. So often I get caught up in wishing I did something better or wishing I did something different. I forget I still have the power to create something new. All that matters is we keep trying.

I've been met with a barrage of "why?" for the past few days, but it's always a treat to see accomplished artists take the time to give truly inspiring advice to the would be film makers, painters, etc. of the world. So inspiring!

ImpendingRiot responds:

It's amazing to think about how much of an impact a video/speech like this will have. It's like dropping a pebble in a creative pond. Who knows how many works of art will be created because of his words.

Damn. I really tried to hate Kevin Smith for a while, but this was pretty good.
