The Journey

On the final day of the just completed Filmmakers Lab held by the ideaFestival Institute in Louisville, Kentucky the faculty talked a lot about the difficult challenges involved in breaking into the film business. They provided a lot of great insights on ways to get you and your work noticed. It's understandable many of us equate "success" with finally making it or achieving our goal. But during this discussion I was reminded and discussed with the group something Shakespeare had to say about this subject "All things are with more spirit chased than enjoyed". In other words, pay attention to and enjoy the journey--it is often the real reward of the innovation process.
