This year I set out to prove there’s more to my creative writing, while staying true to my passions. This next film is just that! “The Doors” have been my favorite band since I was a teenager. Jim Morrison was a huge influence on me at an early age. I had a pretty emotional year last year, as I’m sure we all did. My many trips to the desert started as a “woe is me” fest to escape reality. I started studying Buddhism, this helped me get out of my head and stop focusing on my depression. I learned how to turn my frustrations into fuel for my creative desires. I spent a lot of time listening to my inner voice and letting it be heard through my writing. The response to these latest short films has been overwhelmingly positive and I feel like I’ve found my creative voice. Advertisement Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
