In this video we go over why your brain is pissed that you are getting small results for large amounts of work. We can make the brain happy by doing actions that create positive asymmetries in our work.
We learn how to find these asymmetric actions/reactions by defining our vision and measuring different actions to see if they are just "business" or cause real progress and asymmetric results.
I have a whole mental library of strategies for how to discover and do asymmetric actions. Comment below if you would like to hear these strategies.
One way to create asymmetries in our visual effects work is to not create everything from scratch but to use templates & stock footage (use the pre-made work of other artist).
