I just realized that I have full control over my art, well specifically my next video, which I’m editing at the moment.
If I don’t want this scene here. Poof. Gone.
If I want to shoot a new scene here. Grab the camera. Call up my friends.
And it’s not like I’m new to this, we’ve been shooting our own vids since Love Samosa.
Obviously each vid I learn something new.
I keep striving. Keep pushing.
I can’t even watch tv the same anymore. I notice the color correction, the lighting. I try to figure out what lens they’re using.
Did you see that no cut scene for like 10 minutes in True Detective? Gees. I don’t watch tv, I watch how they make tv.
This is how I was when I first started making music.
The thing now is I’m in full control. And it’s kinda scary and awesome.
Most of you reading this probably can’t relate to being in full control. Yes you.
If you’re brown and you probably are, you’ve been told what to do all your life by your parents.
Same with me. Heck I still can feel my heart race when some old person tells me some shit.
I’ve cussed out aunties for talking to me like a kid. I cussed out my best friend’s mom one time. Who does that?
I just hate being told what to do. I really hate it.
And now I have to figure out for myself what to do.
And so do you.
Any place worth going wont show up on a map right?
