Dare To Be Stupid

When it comes to videography, there is no right or wrong, just what works. Just what serves the film and propels the audience in the direction you desire. Yet so often we (myself included) limit ourselves to perfection, to beauty and consequently to a kind of bland formalism. For when we disregard the beauty of the imperfect, what some might describe as wabi-sabi, we disregard a huge amount of the human experience.

“There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.”
Edgar Allan Poe

Ultimately it is the imperfect that make us, and our work, relatable and at worst “Flawed genius is better than flawless talent.”
Matshona Dhliwayo

So I would highly encourage you push your boundaries with the same diligence, as with which you built them. Don’t let your imperfections conveniently excuse you from having discipline. Have the courage to work with your imperfections. Your imperfections are your extended techniques, embrace them.
