The B&E Podcast #107
“Your Convictions As An Artist Define You in the Industry”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
There’s so much to be learned from seeing work that leaves you wanting so much more — not in a good way. We get into some terrific practical and philosophical wanderings about the choices we make as artists and the consequences that come with it.
POINT #1: “SAY SOMETHING HONEST”
-You can tell as fantastical a tale in your work as you want, but it doesn’t mean getting away with not saying something meaningful and truthful about our humanity.
POINT #2: “STAND FOR SOMETHING”
-There are times when we may feel pressured to do something in our work or for our careers that goes against what we think is right. Pick your battles, think about what you are trading off, but what are we if we don’t have some convictions about what we create?
POINT #3: “BE MINDFUL OF YOUR CAREER”
– Artistic industry can be a fickle creature and sometimes we get opportunities to strike while the iron is hot — we’re in demand and have an audience. It’s a terrific place to be in and making good choices can mean the difference between a long career and one that fizzles very quickly.
