The majority of independent filmmakers struggle to get ahead in their craft because they feel they lack creativity, ideas, or resources. It can be hard to strive in a creative environment if you are in fact, not creating anything. Though it may seem far-fetched, the best remedy to get better at your craft is to actually create something.

I stumbled across this video which explains why we should be making something new everyday, even if it is terrible. I completely agree with this concept. Our creativity is like a muscle; the more you stretch it and strain it, the stronger it will become. Plus, you never know who might see your work and help you achieve your goals. Sounds like a win-win to me! Keep creating, making, and building so you can stay on top of your game in the creative community.
