I've been a multimedia producer since highschool. I used to be in a band, do graffiti and skateboard, I documented it all and have hours of footage. I went to college and started traveling the world documenting all sorts of wild stuff. I don't say this to toot my own horn, but to lay the framework to what's happening on my journey with this documentary I have been editing since last fall.
I came into this, thinking I had it figured out and was able to do it.
I see why I gave up the first time, its been dreadful.
The reason I am posting this, is because what I learned today is extremely valuable and simple; if you get bored, cut it out.
I was editing something today, and I just had a difficult time putting it together, till I realized, "dude, this isn't client work, this is your art, if you don't like it, don't force it."
I was like "oooo shit."
If you work int he creative offerings field, you understand the importance of drawing a line between client work and yours, creative professional and artist.
I am learning to work really hard without trying.
If you don’t like it, chances are the people you are trying to reach won’t like it either…than again I surprise myself... Thank God for blogs, I can rant all I want.
BTW, JLO’s got a new album, I don’t like it, but enjoy the track with Ricky Ross.
