Advantages of Adopting Ideas from other Areas into yours

Updated on December 26, 2013


From consumer to producer

Art to some extent is the way that the artistes tell a story or express their thought and ideas in a unique language that is understood by themselves and their target audience.

One can be very successful in his or her area or art if you have been a consumer or fan before or if you have been a fan of what you want to produce before. This helps you to really know and understand your target market. You have been in their shoes before, so you can always understand what they need and produce to suit their desires.

Movie producers as opposed to writers

For instance movie producers watch movies a lot. In fact that is how most movie makers start off. The best movie producers or movie makers start off as ardent movie fans and eventually end up wanting to tell stories or make movies in their own way or which they feel would have been told better. Being natural ardent movie fans themselves, they are able to draw ideas and inspiration from other works that they can fuse into their own work or retell the story in their own style and taste which their target viewers would appreciate more.

Successful writers

It’s the same way with writers who start off as people who naturally love reading. Most successful writers are ardent readers themselves. They are mostly successful in their work because even when they have become writers, they never stop reading. They still continue to read and absorb interesting ideas from other sources to support their own.

This is not so different from a movie producer picking ideas from other movies to create their own unique concepts such as combining sci-fi, adventure, action or even sometimes scenes and ideas from other movies.
