What do the words "Creative Community" bring to mind for you? How do you feel is the best way to utilize members in a Creative Community?
It means being in and amongst your contemporaries, your peers, your like-minded friends for positive growth. Especially in production, where we all know that our creativity is a sum of all its parts, a creative community is healthy, purposeful, and essentially necessary.
How did you discover your creativity?
I was lucky enough to be raised by my mother who encouraged me to be anything I wanted. When I was young, I wrote stories and drew a lot, and I was always bugging my mom to take me to the movies....but it really wasn't until college that I figured it all out. A older classmate and good friend there at school was knee-deep into film/video production and the more I hung out around him, helping him with his projects/productions, the brighter that light bulb got until one day it just popped.
Top Tips you would give someone starting out in your creative profession:
To never let up on producing your personal work, and to always do so with no outside expectations.
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Making ice cream sandwiches and watching late late night movies when I should probably be sleeping.
