Stop. Stop trying to keep up with the newest creative fads, effects, editing, lighting styles, etc. Forget what people are raving about. What are you excited about? Believe it or not, not everyone's new project is multiple "fire" emojis. All your creative peers say they just worked with someone "about to drop the greatest thing you've ever heard/seen" as if they are in some tight inner circle. 99% of those declarations are utter bullshit. Make things you're proud to put your name on, share them, and go make more.

Don't worry about being trendy, worry about being good.
