The video below is one of the most truthful and inspiring speeches I've seen and heard in a while.
Its true that we all moan about getting jobs in the industry (I do it too!) but he's saying that there's alternatives, get a group of people together and make an animation! sounds so simple and it is really, but like he said, were all brain washed into thinking that we need to get a job. He's very blunt in how he speaks, saying he has no respect for us because of this lack of independent thinking, but I totally agree with the harshness of his words.
He sum up why we dont do these things in three words..."lethargic. uninspired...Terrified"
Watch the video, I will open your eyes.
