My best days do seem like a distillation of all that was best about school. Write a story! Paint a picture! Write a poem! Make a print!
There are two things that create opportunities. One is being involved with something that makes money, and the other is winning awards. And the reason that winning the awards creates the opportunities is because it gives the people who are selling the picture the opportunity to make more money.
I'd be more interested in doing a smaller, character driven thing, rather than another action picture.
Remember, the goal of structured futures thinking is to come up with a picture of possible futures that will help to inform strategic decisions.
Don't make your living with cinema because Hollywood will take you, will eat you, will destroy you. This is the reality. You have a good picture, have success, you take the person and they destroy you.

Several tons of dynamite are set off in this picture - none of it under the right people.

Even the bigger ones rarely get much time to stand back and look at the bigger picture. Many are on a treadmill chasing after contracts and new funding.
Intellectuals are good at seeing the big picture. But they are not so good at process.
Fact is, awards shows were never really about recognizing achievement.

I really chess-play culture shifts. I'm really good at understanding what worldwide cell-phone use means. That's what I do. I try to picture it three to four to five steps ahead.
