It's not.I've been struggling with the same notion.
I don't know how to make a movie. If I made a movie, it would look like Suburban Sasquatch. Therefore, I don't make movies. I wonder if that is a good thing.
It's understandable if you make the movie, look at it, decide it's not of a quality to share with the world, and put it on a memory stick and tuck it away somewhere. It's okay if you do that with the next five movies you make. It's okay if you do that with all of the movies you make.
But if you think it would be fun to make movies, and you feel like you have an idea to make a movie, and you do nothing with that but say "Well it would suck" and never make one, then you've proven yourself more of a coward than Dobson. Letting a creative urge die because it wouldn't be as good as a major studio funded and polished endeavor is one of the saddest, most hollow things in the world. Don't do it. If you feel the urge to be creative, you should... you don't have to throw what you make out there hoping for public adulation, the point is the creation, not the reaction.
Edit: Actually let me add one more thing here.
If all you ever even do is have fun making something, you will be a step up over Dobson. That is one of the greatest problems he has, one that shows through in everything he does: He's not having any fun. Everything he creates is to chase acclaim, to drive for pay, or to attack someone that's wronged him. And you can tell from the lack of effort and shortcuts he takes that he is never, ever having any fun doing it. If you have an audience, there's something to be said for taking the audience into account, but if you're not having any damn fun with what you're doing then there's not a single bit of point to it. Dobson hates drawing, hates making comics, and hates putting his work out there. That will always be his downfall as a creator, because he doesn't actually enjoy creating. Anyone who does is superior to him... even if their skills were less, even if their audience was smaller, as long as they have fun they will be more successful at creating and at life than the fuckin' blue bear.
