As of late I find myself overwhelmed with desires to make videos challenging; injustice, the modern organized and corporate religion, atheist christians, apathy, and other various random topics of the human condition. I’m searching for the confidence, courage, and energy to tackle some of these things over the next several months or years.
If you ever have an idea that would make a great script, an issue that could be exposed or battled through a visual arts piece, or a clever message that could ignite and inspire people cross-culturally, multi generational, and personally.
Some of my inspiration comes from:
I believe as a society of artists and social media, we can impact our immediate communities, our neighborhood, workplace, town, city, country, world… Don’t let the truth go Unspoken.
The more I look around and get frustrated with the injustices of the world the more I search for hope and answers for those in need. I am finding that from very young, caring, and energetic people to established organizations there are answers. I’m trying to figure out where I fit in all of this.
I’m starting to wonder if the next project I work on is the act of introducing these all stars to the megaphone of what artists can do to deliver their message. Artists have a unique ability to engage the heart. I want to establish a new generation of artist that link arms and; create awareness, strike fear into suppressors, hope and opportunity for victims, and take ground by partnering with all these amazing organizations and individuals out there that have huge hope for change.
Why Bad Things Happen - Creating art while under attack
We are doing a series to follow up “Jesus Dilemma” called “Why Bad Things Happen”. Lately I have been studying 4-5 books on the subject to get a bigger picture than my own life. Instead, a lot has been going on that has been pretty trying; My wife got invisiline and we don’t have the money for that, she had a crown done as well, the car was vandalized and had to get fixed, my daughter first injured her gums and damaged her teeth, now she has pneumonia and is having an allergic reaction to the medicine. I know this is nothing in comparison to what many people go through but it’s hard nonetheless. I know God is good and He is here with us, I just know from experience, being in the moment, it can be pretty tough.
Does this ever happen to you? When you work on a certain subject, you feel like you are all of a sudden under attack?
