Heroes, Mentors, Coaches

Divine and inspired, heroes with humanity are all around fiction and reality. Mentors assist with guidance and may serve as a GPS when trusted. Coaches can help you through when you’re willing to produce. Self-soothing techniques, including self talk, are used by some producers like athletes. You can be your own coach and bounce off…

A World Away.

“Downward and dense in a critical crusade. No tears or blood are shed unless it’s done to yourself. It’s almost as if someone wanted us to destroy each other… From the looks of it, they’ve had a high measure of success. We could all be upward and uplifting, rising above natural challenges. Moving forward despite…

Trust Fall.

To be committed to caring… Would you do a trust fall with yourself? Would others do a trust fall with you? If you would do a trust fall with yourself, why not give someone else the opportunity to trust you? Those are simple questions with a simple lineation, right? Yet trust is so necessary that…

Experimental Narration

Experimental film is the first medium to show up in searches regarding experimental narration. This is despite the fact that we as a species have had several millennia of practice writing books. By the numbers, people consume more content on YouTube than we do read books. And yet by reading and doing the research for…

Training Wheels.

It’s no secret that systems make things easier. There’s plenty in our history’s canvas that lets us take a deeper look and prevent the same catastrophes. How could this have happened? We’ve lost our entire crop, and that blasted smoke keeps coming down from the new refinery! We could’ve done without electricity, this wasn’t worth…

The End of an Era.

“In the end, Kwan and Yvon both disappeared in the chaos. No one knows what happened to them – it’s almost as if they vanished from known existence. There’s no mistaking it – their battle wages on. People still fight for both sides of the coin, and all they have to do now is pick…

To Be Cause.

“To live or not to live my own story in a masquerade party, to enjoy the ball or to get enthralled on a hitch…” What a load of bully. I didn’t need to see things like this on the way here. Why did the teacher have to assign such a stupid reading? Does he even…

Narrative.

Narrative is older than any human alive today, and perhaps through thought, its’ existence transcends humanity’s existence. Older than humanity, who got the credit for defining storytelling? Narration takes many different forms, and its’ abstraction is where many disciplines meet up in expressions alongside projects that produce revenue and those that don’t. An exercise I…

Surrogate Empathy

While attending one of my local colleges I received the privilege of seeing a military veteran express himself about his tours. While I wasn’t there in his tours, myself and others could feel his sorrow and rawness. Through his experience that he chose to share, we the audience got to see things from a single…

Faith

Do we as humans collectively have more faith in the truth, or an ideal? A behavioral analysis of the masses might reveal it. Things supposedly indicative of the truth could reveal it, if it doesn’t get jaded by our bias in study first. Some definitions of the truth have been undermined by the language we’ve…
