This is my first ever FILM FRIDAY blog post and I’m beyond excited!
I am endeavoring to blog more regularly and this post is the start of one thread where I focus on filmmaking, my own film projects, film screenings, and movies I’m watching and getting inspired by (or not!).
PLUS, Friday’s are MOVIE NIGHT in my house! More on that later in this post.
Up to now, my blog posts have included all aspects of my work as an author, artist, curator, and filmmaker. Perhaps this was a reaction, a swing of the pendulum, from my past online. I once had a separate website for art, and another for writing, and another for my books. It was too much to maintain. A few years ago, I amalgamated ALL MY WORK into this one site. My blogging followed suit.
While I can’t go back to multiple websites, I am moving forward with blogging by dividing up my interests and work.
If you missed my Monday post (my first “Artsy Monday”), I laid out my game plan:
This is an ambitious schedule. I recognize that. Already I’m thinking: WHAT HAVE I GOT MYSELF INTO?!?!?
Yet, I’ve spent a good chunk of this week reaching out to authors, artists, photographers, and filmmakers, all with the goal of sharing their work, celebrating creativity, and giving a platform for amazing projects and people who we all need to know about.
Creativity is contagious! That’s what I believe.
* Are ya with me?
On that note: Welcome to Film Fridays!
