Practice Makes Perfect by Jayme K.
What is the difference between a career and a passion? The choice is hard. Many never figure it out. Instead they go through life without knowing which road will lead them to perfection. Plenty of people mourn the loss of the “life that could have been”. Every day millions of people choose to have a career over a passion. Art is something that really pays, just like crime only there is less of an audience for art than there is for crime.
That is what Practice Makes Perfect explores. A random teacher longs to make a career out of stand-up comedy. Most comedians suck and maybe he is not very good at stand-up. There are millions of comedians doing stand-up comedy who should sit down. Whether or not the teacher is good at comedy is irrelevant. Focus is on a steady career consistent paycheck. A few choose the love thing the passion project. Usually the passion project is the road less traveled and it does make all the difference. Not everybody can afford that difference however.
Lots of people wish they could have done things differently. On the other hand it is important to have a level of consistency with life. A passion project can always be an on the side thing that continually tugs at the heart strings. People who follow the passion project can find great fulfillment in doing what they love but at great cost. Perhaps they need to own up to the fact that they may need to cut back on expenses, to really figure out what is a necessity and what is a luxury. Few can do this particularly in a culture that celebrates material success over personal enjoyment. Personal enjoyment tends to be equated with material possession when that is not always the case.
Jayme K. had done this sort of thing before. A novelist, writer for Thought Catalog and general ‘doer of things’ Jayme K. has good follow-through with whatever he puts his mind to. With this particular project a great deal of the filming has already been completed, hence why he can at least show a trailer. Far more is needed: more filming, post-production, etc. Hence he is asking the great world for a little helping hand. Considering how much he has already done himself, out of his own pocket (and out of his own time) it is a good idea to help him out.
