Workshop: "Unexcused," Identifying the most common excuses Creatives use which hinder our success.
I’ve done about a million weird gigs. I was a paper boy, a wood workers apprentice, a projectionist at a movie theater. I installed a telecommunications network at a housing project for Indian Monks. I worked at the flag ship Taco John’s in my home town – Cheyenne, Wyoming. I painted two building sized grain silos in the world’s weirdest town – Fairfield, Iowa. I was the head of Security on that movie, Hesher. I got sent to Dubai as an air courrier with one hour notice, same thing with Rome except that time I saw the Pope! I’ve stood at the finish line of marathons and photographed thousands of runners drag their nearly broken bodies across. I’ve shot hundreds of graduations and hundreds of weddings. I’ve spliced fiber optic cable in cold tiny trailers, and mounted giant satellite dishes on the top of radio towers. One time I was hired to pretend that I worked at this architectural design firm so it seemed like they had more employees during a big client meeting. I ended up editing a rap video and answering to the name “Brant”. It’s all in a days work.
I finally stopped taking day rates when I started a production company called Shark Pig. Now I just have one job, but it keeps me busier than ever. Our recent clients include: YouTube, Levi’s, Purina, UGG, Midori, Audi, McDonalds, Pfizer, Lucky Magazine, and Paul Mitchell. Come talk to me about busting through creative blocks. I mean...if you want. It'll be in a rant format."
