“At the end of the day, do you want to pick apart something that happened or do you want to create something yourself? You can either sit around and be entertained or you can go out and try to be entertaining.”
This 2012 video features Clerks filmmaker Kevin Smith’s perspective about criticism and creation.
Smith suggests it’s time to move past the era of criticism and explains that we now live in a world where it’s never been easier to create and distribute art so that means anybody who doesn’t like what’s being created has an opportunity to create their own alternatives.
As he says, “It’s not enough to comment any more, you’ve got to do.”
