By Michael A. Levine. I worked for Hans Zimmer for about 8 years, 5 of which were in a studio at Remote Control, his facility in Santa Monica.

This should be a reassuring realisation and encourage you to keep going and to improve your work by working more and more. It is this point where many people simply quit but the key to succeeding is to simply keep going and to remind yourself that practically everyone doing interesting creative work has had the very same experience.Details
