Truer words have never been spoken. When I first made my decision to go full on into doing something film/writing related with the rest of my life, I was terrified. Just thinking about all the incredible and brilliant people out there creating wonderful art, had me pretty overwhelmed and intimidated. I thought that as time goes on, the well will eventually run dry and it’ll just become harder to create material that is new and refreshing. Then I read this quote, and it made me realize: as time goes on, filmmakers are just going to continue to become more complex amalgamations of their favorite artists that have come before them. Instead of the well running dry, art/film/writing will just become more refined as we “steal” from each other and combine what has already been combined before. This idea makes me excited to see what I will be able to create, “stealing” from the artists and filmmakers and writers I love most.
