This morning, I kicked out an outline of what is probably going to be a pretty groovy ad campaign for a real client, with real resources courtesy of Adam Fox, a new partner in crime.
How did this happen?
Working at the craft. Directing the one act play. Finishing Ghettopreneurs. Finally 😉
And building the right team. Things have only moved along because of Adam Fox, Jeffrey McCracken, Aunt Bobbie, Tywana Wright Sutton, Mrs. Givens, Samora Suber, the Oasis ladies. It is a great and awesome thing to be loved.
Filmmakers are the only artists I know who don’t make things regularly. And I include folks like Tarentino who really haven’t made that many movies.
All the networking in the world can’t stand up to a finished bit of work. Completion is profoundly satisfying even if the results are disappointing or unexpected.
Work begets work. Training creativity like a muscle is what produces excellence.From now on, I commit to reconnecting to my NYC roots and making work happen regularly whether the assignments are walking in the door or not.
I’ve been smiling like a Cheshire cat since I began this journey this summer.
