Self-Realisation

Interesting

If you think about it, there’s generally no correlation between how much something cost to make and how interesting it is.

There are boring movies that bomb… and that cost $100mm to make. And the sound of a crying infant in the next room costs nothing at all, but it certainly gains your attention.

A video made for free can go viral, and we’ll happily ignore an ad campaign that cost a million or more to make.

So, if money isn’t related to interestingness, why do we worry so much about spending more on the media we create?

Over-the-top production values are sometimes a place to hide. It’s tempting to cover up boring with polish, but it rarely works.

Stories and relevance are far more important than budgets.
