When you find yourself surrounded by gifted people, don't miss an opportunity to do something amazing. I'm sure you've all heard about Joss Whedon's adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing... Shakespeare had me hooked, Joss and cast had me curious, and the trailer has me salivating. I studied Shakespeare for many years and am always on board for adaptations. Shakespeare's themes are classic and timeless, full of pop culture and rich with dialogue.
You might be saying to yourself, "Yeah, but that's Joss Whedon and his merry band of talented friends. I'm not him, or them, and don't have the resources."
And I will tell you this: You are only limited by your imagination, or lack thereof.
Don't miss an opportunity in your own backyard to do something amazing. Even if it's just for you and your friends. You never know when one small idea might catch on and become something that is much ado.
Ars longa, vita brevis. Life is too short to not give art a try.
