My boss thinks he knows more because he’s older, owns the cameras, got frustrated at Pinnacle Studio and bought Sony Vegas. He can’t tell whether I’ve just changed a few things on a project, or spent a whole week redoing the audio because the speaker’s voice dynamics were all over the place. He doesn’t care either.
A couple of thoughts from some who is older (54). With age comes wisdom, but sometimes age comes alone.
I have spoken out for years about those folks who truly know what they’re doing vs. those who think they do – It’s not just in video/film but in every profession – Truly great folks will have no problems showing you how to also become great – Sitting at their feet and listening, watching and emulating is a wonderful experience and they help make it so. There is also no rule that states that experience makes for talent – sometimes someone new can bring novel ideas that can best the most experienced one out there.
Those who think they have great talent and hoard that like a dragon guarding treasure are empty and not worth looking to for guidance – Truly talented people make you feel like you can also be talented.
There are also others who think they already know it all and try to teach those who do – Most of the time they are pitied by the ones who can help them most.
