Are you making the movie simply for your own expression?
Does anybody else benefit from your movie?
If not, how could you restructure the narrative to benefit other people?
"It's interesting to note that those who take that opportunity (and those who succeed most often) are doing it because of what they can do for the tribe,
not because of what the tribe can do for them."
- Seth Godin, Tribes
In many ways the success of a film comes from its benefit to an audience, not necessarily by the quality of its content.
As you make decisions throughout the making of your movie, ask yourself:
Who is this for?
If the answer is "Me" too many times in a row, consider rethinking direction.
