Director, Cinematographer & Editor

As a videographer, I often work with clients to carry out their vision. While my own creative input is always welcomed, there are still restrictions as I need to stay within the brand of the company. Whenever I get the chance, I pursure a small creative project of my own to share with my friends and family. One of those projects was this video called "Creative Block". Many artists I know go through phases where they struggle with creating things, this period can be very discouraging to continue working on your art. The video I created shows the feeling of anxiety artists struggle with when they feel like thy cannot create. 

Tik tok, tik tok, tik tok. ⁣

Sometimes that's all I can hear, seconds passing by. Minutes and hours being wasted as I sit there with no ideas. No creativity, nothing. It feels like I'm running out of time. It feels like time is going faster. But it isn't.⁣

Tik tok, tik tok, tik tok. ⁣

It's not going faster. It never speeds up, I'm not working against the clock, I'm working at my own time. There's no fixed way to be creative, so stop telling yourself you're not doing enough. Stop telling yourself that you're not enough just because you can't think of something creative right now. Take a break. It's just a creative block.⁣
