There is a surprising lack of vision in Hollywood sometimes. The irony is that movies are a visual medium, yet many creative types lack a deep understanding of vision. Many studio execs are excellent leaders. They have a keen eye for talent, a passion for the medium and a truly collaborative approach to filmmaking. Yet they can not see the vision within a script.
Hollywood, like many other industries is full of ego. Many leaders, such as studio execs, directors and actors have strong personal visions and seek to impose them on “their” projects. Personal vision is important. It is a moral compass that guides us on a daily basis. But too often it is ego that clouds this vision. And not just ego in the sense of an over-inflated opinion of one’s self.
