Thoughts on the Creative Career (by zefrankenfriends)

I’ve been interviewing people for a job here as a video producer… when I ask them to show me work, they show me things from school, or from another job, but I’m more interested in what they did last weekend.


I have a lot of respect for Ze Frank, and I adored his year-long project, The Show. So many people have said things similar to this, but it’s always a good thing to hear again. In summary: if you want to make stuff, make stuff. It’s the only way you’ll get past the point of making things to the point of having made stuff. Then you get to make more stuff. So go make stuff!

This will all sound very familiar if you read Steal Like An Artist.
