Metaphors for making movies

Making movies is like ... baseball? bowling? making a cup of tea?

Hot sex, but you never know if it's a wet dream or not.

Here is a quote from a post I made about a year ago:

"The truth is, indie film making is like childbirth in that you have months and months of preparation, stress, worry, and horror that culminate in hours or days of sweaty, screaming exhaustion and terror, that leaves you with a big sticky mess. Eventually that mess can be molded into something great, or maybe it was just a big bag of mistakes. However, once you've gotten there, you've completely forgotten how miserable the whole process was, and you're ready to try it again."

Well, this would apply to me only I think - but making movies is like taking a test. No matter how hard you study, there is always something that surprises you that you didn't cram for.
