“Don’t make the same mistakes I did. Make your own mistakes. There’ll be plenty of them, believe me.”
– Queen Clarisse Renaldi (The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement – 2004)
Oh how true the Queen’s words do ring!
Yes, you can read up on filmmaking, for example. You can learn from others. You can try it yourself… but ready to make mistakes. Of course you can learn from others’ mistakes – and well you should – but let yourself make your own.
And then comes the really hard part… be ready to learn from your mistakes so you don’t keep repeating them.
Best wishes & good cheer to you,
