Dreaming is a Way of Trivializing the Process #Hamspiration

Every Monday, join The Creative Ham for #Hamspiration – a post featuring something creatively daring and meaningful. We scour the internet and your submissions to deliver the most inspiring pieces of work or inspiration out there.

This week, we feature a piece by Apple that was released during the 87th Academy Awards (2015). “Make a Film With iPad” is the debut of the iPad Air II and features a narration by Martin Scorsese that’s both eloquent and inspiring.

“You can’t do your work according to other people’s values. I’m not talking about also following your dream, either. I never liked the inspirational value of that phrase. Dreaming is a way of trivializing the process of the obsession that of the obsession that carries you through the failure, as well as the successes, which could be harder to get through. If you’re dreaming, you’re sleeping and it’s important and imperative to always be awake to your feelings, your possibilities, your ambitions. But you also know this, for your work, for your passion, every day is a re-dedication. Painters, dancers, actors, writers, filmmakers, it’s the same for all of you. All of us. Every step is a first step; every brush stroke is a test, every scene is a lesson, every shot is a school. So, let the learning continue.”
