I recently had a conversation with a fellow director about the work. We ended up talking about our first memories and past impressions. I was reminded of something one of my mentors and would say. It would go something like this:
"There are three things that will hold you back from greatness. Shame. Fear. And Ignorance. You're all great artists. Every single one of you in this room. The question is whether or not you're going to let Fear, Shame or Ignorance get in the way of your greatness."
You're all amazing. Keep up the hard work. Change the world.
