It was not my intention to suggest that filmmaking is "better" than any
other activity. I agree with you that whether something is a hobby or
not "has to do with the inner structure of the person doing it . . . "
And I don't think "hobby" necessarily has a negative meaning. I do
think that the word "art" is sometimes used too loosely, however, and
therefore can tend to lose real meaning. But that does not at all
imply that any other activities are necessarily "lesser" in value.
Different is not lesser. . . .Also, of course, there are many different
kinds of artists, and sometimes they are under appreciated,
misunderstood, and so on.
