Ohh, Mistakes

Over the course of the past few months, I've been showing footage from the film to people. It's delightful and terrifying to sit with them as they watch it for the first time. My mind races. I wonder what they're thinking. What details they're noticing. What emotions they might be feeling. And if they are aware of mistakes I made while filming.

But, no matter the mistakes, they are there to help us learn. You can spend a fair amount of time learning and trying, but sometimes mistakes (when we pay attention to them) will help us improve. Critical feedback is important in shaping the improvements.

It's all a learning process.
