You don’t have to be a filmmaker to make a film.

You don’t have to be a singer to sing.

You don’t have to be an artist to make art.

You don’t have to be an illustrator to illustrate.

You don’t have to be a website designer and builder to design and build a website.


Life is an adventure.

A short adventure, unfortunately.

So if you want to do something.

Bloody well do it.

Don’t wait for the label you think you need.


There are, of course, standards.

But set your own.

Then work hard to understand what’s required so you can match or exceed them.

And sprinkle creativity and imagination on top.

You’ll be fine.


If you want proof that this is true.

So that you actually do get off your backside.

Here it is.

The world contains a lot of (what some people would describe as) crap films, crap songs, crap art, crap illustrations, crap websites and more.

Many of which were created by people with the label of filmmaker, singer, artist, illustrator, web designer or something else.


So don’t wait for the label you think you need.

Block out opinion.

All except your own.

Be confident.

Be yourself.

Have fun.

And off you go.
