Being a creator of something makes us inherently sensitive. When a person has put considerable time and effort into their creation their is normally a lot of passion involved. It can be really hard to take correction or even suggestions. The author of the passage we read did a great job of expressing her discomfort when someone needlessly critiqued her work. There is great value that comes from finding someone who is able to give appropriate feedback. It is really important to find someone at the same level as yourself as well. Make sure that the person has your best interest as well because you do not want to uncover your hard work to someone that will not value it for what you feel that it is worth. Obviously correction is needed while we create our work because we are so far from perfect, and having someone give you a fresh perspective of what your work means to them, gives you the input you need to better your work.
This is hard for me because film making is something I have never really done before. For most of the assignments in this class I feel like a fish out of water. I have been deeply grateful for the feedback and direction I have received from everyone.
I remember a time where I was struggling over some correction I had received when I was on my mission. One of the elders counseled me that when I received correction I should think about it later when I was not so heated, and that I should give the correction merit and way it out in my mind. If it was something I should change then I should adapt, if it was something frivolous or even something I did not need to change then drop it and let it go.
