No authority like ignorance

Citizen Kane is regarded as one of the best films of all time. Directed by the great Orson Welles, one of the things that this film is prized for is how many “rules” it broke during filming. As Welles put it, it was just, “sheer dumbness.” He didn’t know what he didn’t know and confessed that the basics can be learned in simply a day and a half.

While it is important to understand how to use the tools we do not need to be bound by them. How much training do you really to start making art? Or are you just finding another excuse to begin?
