If you dreamed of being a great documentary filmmaker, but you ended up developing trailers for movies, you’ve sold out.
But what if you develop movies on the side?
Are you discounting the dream?
If you dreamed of being a great writer, but you’ve taken a job as a local journalist, or worse, a manager at a local bank, are you truly living or are you getting by?
The distinction between commercial and authentic art isn’t easy to determine.
In the end, create what brings you joy.
