I’ve begun to realize that Art….is selfish. I came out of school dreaming of making great films……which did NOT happen. Not so much, for the reasons you would think. The biggest obstacle to making films was the simple cop out of “being responsible”. Chasing responsibility I tried my hand in creating many types of moving images…..almost all of a type I didn’t care about. The pursuit of the dollar obstructed my pursuit of the stories that matter to me.
Sometimes, you have to stand up to yourself and pursue what you want. I’m doing this now, because it’s become obvious that I’ll never get anywhere doing the “RESPONSIBLE” thing and tomorrow’s never promised.
That’s not to say I didn’t work on anything that brought me joy. I think my demo reel is chock full of people, places, images, and experiences that I loved or learned from.
I’m just determined to fill my life with more.
