it all started back in April of 2014 with this little video:
Well this little video somehow found Kimbra – and her Artistic Director, Thom Kerr contacted me the same day wanting to ‘talk ideas’.
How exSIGNting!? because, I HAVE IDEAS!
Within minutes, I was sent the track.
I spent a day playing it on repeat in the car and came up with this mostly whilst sitting at the traffic lights (some of it whilst not at the traffic lights):
add into the pot – an awesome team of directors, designers and animators – we came up with this AMAAASIGN spectaular:
surreal – it all happened so fast and now i’m lying in bed watching my work in a music video of someone whom i admire
stoked – to see sign language hitting the spotlight!
excited – about projects to come!
and now for some things i’ve learnt (and things that came up):
collaboration – collaboration is the funnest way to create anything; everyone has their own unique ingredient to add and the end result is always surprising. I remember when I was younger, feeling the need to do everything on my own and say that it was all MY work – but who was I kidding?! I was just a result of everyone before me and those around me!
inspiration – draw upon the expressions from those around you and those who came before you; and ‘giving credit where credit is due’ proves great results because people feel more inclined to contribute when they feel acknowledged, and its a lot more fun.
respect – nobody is more important than anybody else in a creative team, or in the world for that matter.
Thanks for coming with me on this ride into the unknown,
the future is bright and sparkly,
i can feel it!
