What’s the point if people don’t like it.
Do I want people to like my art? Yes, of course I do. I want nothing more. It’d make me extremely happy, it’d validate everything I’ve worked for and have yet to work for still. It would give my life purpose.

But that’s not the point. The point is that I’ve got stories I want to tell. And after that, no matter how much I obviously want to succeed, it’s out of my hands. After that it’s up to the audience.

If people like the movie or show you make, then you’ve touched their lives and influenced the world.

If people hate it then balding men on the internet make videos about how much they wish you were dead.
Oh come on. If it does end up sucking, you just gotta learn from it and use what people didn't like about it to make better films next time. It's called learning from your mistakes for a reason. It won't mean you will be viewed as a bad person.

The guy who made Fanboy and Chum Chum is coming out with another show that looks legit good.

So yeah, you can learn from mistakes.

Have you seen James Gunn's work prior to Guardians of the Galaxy? Yikes. Not exactly an industry defining man, was he?

But it took some time, and now he's pretty much lauded everywhere :yoshi:

Some art gets liked and changes the world. Some art gets hated and changes the world. Some art will not change the world whether liked or hated. It’s hard to strike a balance between doing what you like versus doing the stuff that expands your horizons. Art ain’t always easy
Inspiring stuff from...... um.... wait, who are you?

Um, okay, welcome to SB :yoshi:

It’s also worth noting that no art is universally loved or hated. There’s an audience to be found for almost any piece of art.

Example: Michael Bay is either a talentless hack or an instant reason to buy tickets for the whole family depending on who you talk to.

If people don’t like your product you don’t get to try again. Ever.
Did...

Did you miss what I said about the fanboy and chum chum guy?

People are excited for his new show, they think it looks great! Despite the fact that his last show was hated!

You have a very one track point of view.
