Can we all stop pretending we are so passionate about film making?
'Passion' or 'Passionate' seem to be the most overused words not only here on NFS but all throughout amateur and independent film making. I'm almost immediately turned off to posts and fundraising projects that mention the word.
I think it's akin to someone believing they are in love with someone when in reality they're just lusting after them. They are in love with the idea of that person rather than the reality of that person.
I feel like a lot of people are either totally delusional or are passionate about the idea of film making rather than the actual craft. It's hard not to be though. Film making is a very romantic endeavor to think about.
