This an experience.

Some will love.

Some will hate.

All will learn.

Some will learn this career is the only career.

Some will learn this was all a horrible mistake.

So many hours go into making 24 frames a second.

Perfection is a dream worth striving to achieve. A dream that is elusive and always just out of reach. An audience might see perfection. An artist might say they have achieved perfection. The thing to remember is that perfection will always be a dream.

Deep in every artist’s heart should be the knowledge of that one missing frame, that one mistimed blink, that one mistake that drives them to make the next thing even better than the last. Artists should be dreamers and they should always dream.

    Experience is best. Too bad it’s already gone.

  • Houk Professor

    “I’m an eye. A mechanical eye. I, the machine, show you a world the way only I can see it. I free myself for today and forever from human immobility. I’m in constant movement. I approach and pull away from objects. I creep under them. I move alongside a running horse’s mouth. I fall and rise with the falling and rising bodies. This is I, the machine, manoeuvring in the chaotic movements, recording one movement after another in the most complex combinations.

    Freed from the boundaries of time and space, I co-ordinate any and all points of the universe, wherever I want them to be. My way leads towards the creation of a fresh perception of the world. Thus I explain in a new way the world unknown to you.”
    Dziga Vertov

    “If you’re going to tell people the truth, be funny or they’ll kill you.”
    Billy Wilder

    I am just a poor boy. Work’s my middle name. If money was a reason. I would not be the same.” – Guy Clark
