â€œPeople get into creative work because they have great tasteâ€¦ but the first couple years that youâ€™re making stuff what youâ€™re making is not that goodâ€¦ but your taste is good enough that you can tell what youâ€™re making is not good enough, itâ€™s kind of a disappointment to youâ€¦ a lot of people never get past that phaseâ€¦ they quit.â€ — Ira Glass (Executive Producer and Host of This American Life)
This is an important concept that isn’t talked about enough. I’ve felt that way about every video project I ever worked on. It just wasn’t good enough and I was disappointed in the results. I wouldn’t say that I’ve quit video production, but the last year and a half have had me exploring photography so much that I haven’t worked on video stuff. I’m still optimistic about getting some video stuff finished, but it will probably be on the later side of soon.
