Mr. Emerson

So, we just screened the rough cut of my short...and wow. I think if I were a sensitive person I might have been crying. Fortunately, I'm a machine and I don't cry. haha. My prof totally hated it. She complained the entire time. Our color temperature was too warm for her taste, our actors over acted, it wasn't 16:9, it wasn't cut tight enough. Jeez...I was under the impression that rough cut meant not perfect. Let me just say for the record: Our color temperature was warm on purpose (we're going opposite of blue because the whole movie is about a girl searching for something blue). And our actresses did a great job.

I would be extremely upset and sorry for myself about this but I happen to have this favorite quote by Mr. Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Is it so bad to be misunderstood?  Pythagoras was misunderstood, andSocrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood." 

Thanks Mr. Emerson for representing all the people who break with convention every once in a while. Just a little encouragement for you in case you're ever misunderstood just remember you're in good company :-).
