While I’m on the subject of Star Wars – I watched a great documentary about the making of Star Wars, it’s on Vimeo.com, called Star Wars Begins.
If you are passionate about getting your dream job, whatever it is, I suggest you watch this video.
When you watch it, I recommend that you get past the ‘Wow, these people are so great and so talented’ thoughts and realize that these people who worked on Star Wars are just regular people.
I love the comment by James Earl Jones, voice of Darth Vader, he said “I’m simply special effects, they hired a guy born in Mississippi, raised in Michigan, who stutters. And I lucked out, to get a job that paid me $7000! It was great fun to be a part of that.”
Yes, they were talented, but most of them have this awe about what they’re doing, just like regular people. Yes, they were talented, but they were basically people put in a situation where they were just figuring out how to make things work.
I think that everyone has the basic ingenuity inside of them to be able to figure out how to make something work, it’s just that these people who worked on Star Wars were put into a situation where they were able to practice that ingenuity.
Watch the video with the thought that the creators of Star Wars were just regular people who were able to work on something great, and hopefully, this will inspire you to think that you can do something too.
