Without this forced creativity in 2014 I struggled to actually make anything without the persuasion and help from some friends. In 2015 I need to find a sensible middle ground, a few fun projects across a mixture of art forms and a bit of free time to develop these rather than one a month. Perhaps a sort of manifesto for 2015 may be in order.
Looking back at what I said at the end of 2013 I looked at what I planned for the year ahead.
“my plan for next year is to focus on a few short films/docs over 2014.”2013 in review
I didn’t focus on any short films/docs in 2014.
This year I did however entertain millions of kids with games, music videos and competitions. Those are what have taken over my year. Often people do a job they hate so that they can make short films/art projects in their spare time. I do a job I love which gives me great satisfaction and allows me to organise locations, create filming schedules, find contributors, sort crew, edit video and even shoot interviews. Its great, 2014 enabled me to realise what a great job I have. Even though that is the case I still want to make things that can’t fit into work. So these are my three goals for 2015.
Three goals for 2015
Make a short film and submit to festivals
Collaborate on an art project
Here is hoping I can achieve these three, I think its easily achievable. I shall no doubt be back here next year at this time, I hope I can just put a big tick beside those three. See you this time next year.
