Build your own. Your own reel, your own art.
Too often people can get caught up in frameworks of dependency.
Relying or wishing on others to complete the picture for them.
In truth, this is not the most effective way.
You must build momentum yourself.
Build your own bridge forward as you walk.
Personally, when I was learning how to be an artist, I just created.
It was pencil and paper and simplicity and all of the time in the world stretched to fit my will.
As I moved into film I found a bit of a divide.
Due to much of this being a collaborative process, I started to slow down.
I created but much more frequently in my books than on recorded film / digital media.
From now, I’m setting out to change that. It may take a simple push.
It may take the form of restructuring my projects.
It may take me moving to the other side of the planet.
Whichever way it will be done.
In truth, this is why this space was created, Manikk Realm.
It’s a home, a place for my mind and yours to meet and talk.
On a journey. Searching for something. Sharing what's found.
