Having spent many years in an art school environment, I regard criticism as part of life - a weekly 'Crit' is part of the timetable, with students presenting their work to fellow students and tutors for (hopefully constructive) criticism - and let me assure you, no holds are barred!
Having left art school behind, many artists set up similar group events in order to keep their practice fresh.
As someone once said, 'I don't care what you say as long as you're talking about me and as long as you spell my name right.'
In the arts - and that includes tv and film - the worst thing in the world is to be ignored!
