Film Friday: Nobody Tells This To Beginners

Nobody Tells This To Beginners animation - Inky Collective Blog

 

This minimalist animation uses a brilliant quote by Ira Glass to describe why so many people struggle to get their creativity past a certain point. The main problem being the rather large chasm between your own great taste, and your early work.

Ironically, Saar Oz, the chap who created this video, is still a teenager so is clearly already doing amazing things! I was working in a Virgin Megastore, myself at that age, and writing really bad poetry. You?

 

 

It’s such an inspiring quote, and one that has been turned into a lovely short film before. But what I especially like about Saar’s video is how the simple graphics do nothing to distract from the overall message.

You can see Saar’s other films here, and tell him he’s a bit brilliant over on Twitter.
