Short film â€˜Solo NYCâ€™ 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, thereâ€™s magic is happening. Every damn day.
New Yorkâ€™s professional style understated yet relentless. Showing up, doing your bestâ€”and doing things a little differentlyâ€”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.
