I think this is an awesome article from TED. I have seen some of the articles and of course by now I have seen more.
Why a demo?
Then a friend of mine @ Camera’s International Matt Mayes, asked me to cut a demo for an upcoming project. I did it but again, didn’t put too much regard into it. Where we live budgets are really low. Why would I want to show that material off?, but things had changed since the last time I had done a demo. My brain didn’t realize that……..
If you want to be in the world of excellence and creative freedom, then your work needs to represent that. (Thanks David Sowers @ DASO photo) Bust your rear end, work harder and then when it’s time the right person will see your work and you will be moved. You need to look like you belong where you’re going. Kind of like dressing for success.
That brings us to today. I emailed that reel to a colleague whom I respect in the industry as he asked me to send it. His reply has really rocked my world in that he said that the pieces were very well produced and that we do excellent work.
This sparked my thoughts, that how can you transition from where you are currently located in life, to where you desire to go, if what you’re currently doing doesn’t look like where you want to be going.
After all that talk, here is our demo?
