THAT CRAZT XMEN GUY – STAN LEE
“Everybody thought i was crazy, and that book sold more than any other at that time” Stan Lee is an incredible man, the creator of Iron Man, Spiderman, Thor and so many others it would take a comic book to list.
Now I love Stan Lee and I take heart from knowing that most of his ideas were deemed weird and strange. But what I love more than anything is Stan’s willingness to have his characters have personal problems, he felt a detachment that other characters had from humanity, he embraced the vulnerable.
The two principles of story telling are, HOPE and FEAR! that is it. You need to have both, you need to feel FEAR that your protagonist (YOU) wont succeed on their journey and you also have to still have HOPE that your protagonist (YOU) will make it.
I love creating new video’ series and i love injecting humour and human connecting into my work. Stan is the same, he understands that by doing what he loves that transmutes onto the pages and through to the reader. You have gotta love it because even though people might not point it out, every damn person in the room will know you are faking it and sooner or later it will make you all poorly.
Stan understands the important of having his characters talk to each other as normal people do, this helps the audience connect in an authentic way that you don’t get when you fake it. So I want to say, when you are faking being the next big entrepreneur or slick salesman and it is NOT YOU then you are doing both yourself and those around you who follow you an injustice. You are leading people down a merry way that you yourself don’t have a clue about, so Stan’s work is an incredible example of honesty in art and connecting AUTHENTICALLY with others.
Have the super human courage to start of from an Authentic place within you and you will go far.
