The truth about Art no one will admit.

You hand kindergartners paper and say draw a cow. None have had art lessons. Some will be good and some won’t. The ones who didn’t draw well can want to be artists later in life, take all the classes in the world but they will only get so much better. The ones who did draw better may never take an art class and they will always be better at drawing than the ones who couldn’t draw, it’s just a fact…you are born with the ability or you aren’t. You are born with musical abilities or you aren’t. That is just the unequal nature of humans and the luck of the draw.

The ones who couldn't draw will likely move to a more abstract style of art, I saw this a lot in art school. They will likely look down upon those who did more representational styles and claim art is in the mind, and it is in some respect. But in the end the lack of talent will show through. The ones with the ability to draw may move to more abstract styles by evolution but there is a big differance between the two, and the viewer clearly sees that.

Filmmaking is a combination of all the arts and follows exactly the same rules. If a director has made a shitty movie, they can only get so much better. All the film classes in the world won’t change that. Making a dozen more films won't change that. That’s what makes looking at a director and seeing if they have talent so easy, you just look at the past films. That will tell you all you need to know.
