I ran into this thanks to my crazy-talented sister, and it helped me to feel a lot better about all the audio work that I do. It’s really a single example of “The Long Game” but I think this pair of considered videos make a great point. People in this day and age expect fame and fortune to fall in their lap at a young age, perhaps due to their amazing genius or (shudder) innate talent. To get good at something takes persistence. It takes failure. It takes sticking to your passion and your vision.
Enjoy! Special thanks to Adam Westbrook for making these.
