For all the bitter people out there who don’t trust the system. You’re right. The system sucks and is set up to duplicate boring, conformist memes.
Here’s Felicia Day from The Guild with last year’s Streamy awards, where she thanks all the casting directors, producers and directors for REJECTING her. If not for them beating her to the ground and getting her all depressed, she would never have picked up a pen, written and produced her own show “around the system.”
Just goes to show, the best way to get somewhere is not always straight through.
