Sometimes I wonder if the people making movies that are destined to be absolute shit ever have a moment where they stop and think to themselves "Wow...this is...well it's just fucking terrible..."? Or are they just completely oblivious and believe they're actually making a quality film?

There is a theory out there (don't ask what it's called, I can't recall) that states loosely that in order to know you're shite at something, you have to have a modicum of skill at the task.

Unconscious incompetence > Conscious incompetence > Conscious competence > Unconscious competence.

It's safe to say a lot of directors, actors, and writers never got out of the "unconscious incompetence" stage.
