I am watching a lot of borderline art-house films, with slow pacing, beautiful photography, and interesting soundscapes. It is refreshing that so many of them stray from the cookie-cutter mould of Hollywood-ese. They come closer to touching something true and human … they represent an ethos that I want to embody in my own work.
The gaze, perspective, voice which I am working on perfecting – which I will always be working to perfect, is bearing fruit right now which I am enjoying, and which others seem to be finding some value in as well.
I am writing a lot of poetry, going through, I suppose, a kind of prose recharge. An experiential, experimental phase. I am sure at some point I will slip out of film watching mode and be more about music again for a while. I want to film myself talking about this kind of thing to; a professional sounding and looking television show … that is what I am thinking.
Fuel appears and burns up and through my active mind every moment of the day. Excitement is easy, and work is easy – when you maintain an energetic attitude to it all. I try to do that.
