So, i'll start off this by talking about current projects i have up and running. Yesterday, i finished the last poster for my Harry Potter collection that i will release in the beginning of October. I will be uploading all eight of the prints on the same day (I do not have a date set, but it will be within the first week). So, to all of my Muggle and Pure-Blood watchers, be prepared.
My short film is currently in a weird state. It's active in terms of it still being a thing, but it's momentarily paused as i get myself together mentally and emotionally to take on this project. I'm running with a very limited crew, and more than likely no professional or trained audio/field recorder so i'll have to manage without one. I'm taking all of this as motivation to put work into a Behind-The-Scenes Featurette that goes into detail, primarily for new and up-and-coming filmmakers, to see the realities of micro-budget, indie filmmaking. I also delve into my battles with depression, anxiety, and mental disorders that will spawn a separate video going into how i dealt with it during this film and how they can find help as well.
Now i'll go into where i want to be, as both a person and as an artist.
I want to make films. I want to write. I want to make music. When my short film is released, i will be also upload my music on there as well. I will be creating a free and open filmmaking "school" where i will show mainly new filmmakers ways they can improve their writing, direction, cinematography, editing, and storytelling skills and i'll be using it as a way for myself to improve as an artist as well. I want to collaborate with filmmakers and show them techniques to use and in return learn from their choices as well. I will also have a "class" dedicated for screenwriting and showing new writers different techniques in better crafting their story. I also want to create a community for filmmakers and content creators in general that struggle with depression, anxiety, bi-polar, suicidal thoughts, borderline personality disorder, and other mental illnesses to create a safe-haven and a dedicated place on YouTube where they can talk to someone that an sympathize/empathize with their struggles and hopefully i can prevent someone's attacks/episodes/attempts.
I've been a guitarist for over 10 years. Since i was 11 one of my passions has always been to make music. I will be creating ambient and atmospheric, guitar-driven tracks and albums. I plan on releasing a main portion of my music as pay-what-you-want with no minimum. I also want to release EPs that includes all layers to the tracks i create for filmmakers & content creators alike to mess with the sounds and edit them in any which way they desire. The only thing i would wish for people that download my music for free is that if they share it or use it in a video project would be for them to give me the credit for the music. I of course would love to be able to make this my career, but with an astounding number of musicians and artists doing the same thing, i don't expect a giant pay-out. I'm doing this out of the want to create art. As arrogant and self-righteous as that may be, i just want to be an artist. I want to write, i want to shoot films, i want to make music, i want to create visual art. I want to do everything and anything that makes me happy. I'm tired of working at day-jobs that i resent for taking time away from me focusing on being a better artist. I hate coming home from an 8 to 9 hour shift and being too exhausted to make prints or even write. I just want to be able to do what makes me happy and sustain a healthy life and afford the things i need, but i know how the world works.
All of my YouTube ventures will hopefully be launching in November. I will attempt to upload at least 1 video every week. I eventually want to put full-time effort into it and start making 2 to 3 videos a week, one of each pertaining to filmmaking and music.
I will be updating you all on my life, my films, and everything in between within the coming months.
Have a great evening.
