Please reblog this! I could really use the help.
I appreciate the work that went into this kinetic animation by finally.
A lot of writers/editors/publications have an idea of themselves and what their angle is, and if something doesn’t immediately fit in, out the window it goes. The goal is to stay forever curious, forever skeptical of your own comfort zones.

10 Things I Learned About Art From Playing Paintball
1. Patience is everything.
Don’t shoot until you have a clear line-of-site on your target. Don’t move until there is a clear path forward.
2. You never feel more alive than when you’re about to die.
There is a part of your brain reserved for fight or flight situations. It commandeers the systems in your body that regularly make you a boring person. This same part of the brain is used during improvisation (though, to a lesser degree).
3. Finding the best vantage point increases your chances of survival by a wide margin.
Taking the time to get a high-level understanding of the battlefield is a very worthy investment.
4. Collaboration can save your life.
Sometimes having a teammate lay down suppressive fire while you reload or relocate is invaluable.
5. Collaboration can get you killed.
Sometimes having a teammate try to cover you when they can’t aim well will just draw enemy fire. Or worse, it can get you shot in the back.
6. Don’t just be aware of the basics, internalize them.
It is precisely the moment when you are face to face with your enemy that you will forget how the safety button works.
7. Playing with people better than you makes you play better.
The trick is to try and play with those humble enough to refrain from pointing out the discrepancy.
8. Just because someone has nice gear doesn’t mean they know how to use it.
Most times it does, but once in a while you see a 15-year old with an expensive piece who can’t even hold the thing correctly.
9. There is such a thing as being over-prepared.
Carrying too much ammunition is cumbersome and loud. Having just enough keeps you agile and tasteful.
10. Don’t expect your first shot to kill.
You always shoot twice; once to calibrate your aim, and once to actually hit your target.
BONUS: Dubstep, the official music genre of paintball, is defined as “any electronic music with sub bass.”
This was explained to us by the mongoloid who refereed most of our games (pictured below).
