dood your comment is your perspective and you're entitled to it. i will vehemently disagree with you with regard to the comment about proving the legitimacy of your work. if there's anything that flicks absolutely prove is the legitimacy of your work. you either have flicks to show what you did or it's just a story about a big fish. maybe what you meant to say is that people that put in real work are missing flicks... i agree that doesn't make them somebody that didn't accomplish anything. they obviously did but the problem is it doesn't prove it. that's the main point there.
