If you need filmmaking advice, Casey Neistat’s your man. He’s an example of someone who’s found his niche, his audience and his style – but certainly not without the blood sweat and tears that now give him the credibility as a filmmaker.
I think the approach he had at the beginning is a thought pattern many of us can fall into – chasing after someone else’s version of our dream, instead of paving our own path.
Be encouraged by Neistat’s video, and don’t be afraid of failure. I love his honesty, his doubts and personality that shine through in his video. As he says:
“Make, make again, make it terrible, make it slightly better, make it a lot better, make it great.”
A tenacious spirit goes a long way – go create and put your personal note on it.
