The world doesn't need another short film.
Every story has already been told.
TV is a declining industry.
There are already 100 times more writers than finished productions.
If that is true - why are we here?
If you were writing 60 years ago would you be turning your nose up at TV because you only wanted to work in film? If you were writing 100 years ago would you turn your nose up at cinema because you only wanted to work for the theatre?
What are you turning your nose up at now? Is it what the world wants? Is it a growth industry?
