I hate to state the bleeding obvious, but much of my inspiration grows from other people's work. I must admit to being rather lame when it comes to innovation; any style I've developed is largely through absorption of work of greater artistes than myself. It should therefore come as no surprise that a rekindled love afair with 'watching' film has come at the same time as a reignited passion for making video.
But what came first? Was is the time watching spurring me to film and edit? Or is my time editing craving me to watch more? Do I watch a film and see into the mind of the creators, or do I ask myself how I would have achieved the same? Honestly? I'm merely a student. I couldn't possibly achieve the mastery of film that I see so readily available. I'm happy to sit back and be inspired. Happy in the knowledge that I am inspired.
So what about you? Are you inspired. Do you aspire to be great? Or do you feel inspired? Me? I'm merely expired.
