Short film ‘Solo NYC’ Via Vimeo
Since many of you are creative hustlers like myself, I wanted to share with you a little film I just stumbled across when I googled the words ‘ups & downs of a creative’. For the past 4 months I have experienced far more lows than I am used to. My default outlook on all aspects of life has always been positive & so it has been even harder for me to cope with feeling flat & uninspired. I will revisit this in my new journal entitled ‘Creative bipolar’ starting this week. But for now this short explores the up & downs of being a creative frelancer in NYC & I’m sure will resignate wth many of you!
Being a creative is fucked up & fucked up amazing at the same time. One thing it will never be is boring.
About SOLO NYC:
In the alleyways, back kitchens and matchbox studios tucked away in countless of bustling, yet remarkably unglamorous, neighborhoods wedged within the most vibrant city in the world, there’s magic is happening. Every damn day.
New York’s professional style understated yet relentless. Showing up, doing your best—and doing things a little differently—is the mantra of millions of people who rise with the sun to chase their dreams. With a little luck and a lot of sweat, millions of men and women are making their career ambitions happen, and doing so outside of the traditional career path.
