It is a terrible shame that for people to take you seriously and give you acceptance (if that is what you are looking for) then by the laws of human nature you must become a prolific figure and do something spectacular in order achieve this notability.
Until you do this, no one is going to care. It has been the test of time for hundreds of years, the game hasn’t changed, merely the roles that are now relevant and the fools that are garbed in different clothing – Their souls remain the same.
Apparently, you will only be deemed as outstanding when you are in the limelight for the whole world to see. All in all, a ridiculous and unworthy position to want be in to “earn” the “love” of the ignorant unenlightened brainwashed masses who do not care about you in the slightest, only what you are in the eyes of society and what you can do for them.
You may have finished a job with a celebrity who has already “made it”, and because at this time in your life you are currently who you are and where you are in the industry pecking order – You will not be a priority for expenses, payment, and especially not a priority for receiving your footage, which because of this “celebrity” you are on screen with, will now be noteworthy.
The fact that you hold your ground and even exceed expectations is irrelevant. Your quality may exceed that of the celebrity – Soul, looks, personality. But because you are currently who you are in the eyes of the industry you will be merely a pawn, and you simply do not matter.
Fear not! If you are aware of this, do not be disdained, as you have amassed a comprehension far greater than the entire crew who are supposedly “looking after” you.
