Grateful for all the highs and all the lows that came with 2017. Grateful for the opportunities, all the bonds I have formed with some of the best people, the artists I have been able to work with, the projects I’ve been blessed to be part of, the people who never stopped believing in me, the painful all nighters that created magic, the doubt and frustration that turned into courage and motivation, and to the times where I wanted to give up but proved myself wrong. Thank you to those who have been supporting me along the way. 2017 was one hell of a challenging year, but I won’t forget the good times ✌🏼#heresto2018
A little over a year ago I made my first ever video, The Screening, which made me fall in love with the art of creating, producing, and directing. About 13 months ago, I decided to experiment and chase after what people are too afraid to even consider. That is, my passion. Giving myself a chance was the best decision I could have ever made. I allowed my creativity to take full control and I decided to trust it. At that time I knew little to nothing about producing or creating something, but I do know that I had fun. I had the greatest time with my friends messing around with a camera, visuals, music, and editing. It was an experience I could never forget. As "silly" as the video may be, that video allowed me to explore with my mind creatively and gave me the confidence I lacked before.
Since releasing the Screening I have learned so much more about the fundamentals of a production, which is why I thought I would re-create the video a year later. The original Screening and this new one (The Screening: A Visual Overdose), is a very big deal to me because I never imagined myself having the courage to make something and share it - even though this video is pretty simple. This isn’t some big budget production, just a home-made project that I wanted to have fun with. As a creative, I find that it will always be challenging to satisfy myself with anything that I make, but I have learned that progress is all that matters. Never stop trying and never stop creating.
