A MUSIC PERSON
Filmmakers pull from different art forms and disciplines to create one, cohesive narrative for an audience to experience. And although it's incredibly rewarding, if you don't take stock of the experience you gain by being fans of other people's work, you might lose sight of how utilize their contributions. But as a Director, if you stay open-minded enough and engaged enough, you might become an appreciator of some truly great talent.
