Create: Making Connections

6 Comments

I was on the hook to make a film for Blurb, normal procedure, but I found the topic to be a good one so I thought I would expand here on my own channel. Think about this making connections in the modern world utilizing both Stone Age and Space Age techniques. We all search for place and meaning in our lives but sometimes finding our peers can be a challenge. So, how would I accomplish this? Have a look, have a listen.

  1. Hi Daniel,
    Thank you for your insights on this topic, very inspiring. This post came at the right time in my mailbox (absolutely a nice, welcome coincidence) during certain reflection processes of this freelancer on the topic ‘and-how-do-I-move-forward-from-here-…’
    Greetings from Antwerp to you in your van (or wherever you are currently.)

      Margo,
      back at home now, after 12,000 miles. That is a natural question, how to go, where to go? No simple answer but defining who you are, what you believe and where you want to be is a good start.

  2. Hi Dan,

    This was very refreshing! Two of my favorite things: Getting Christmas cards and postcards that are hand written. I do get the former, but the latter are a lost art, which is a shame. Communication has become so impersonal that when there is a death in someone’s family, people send them text message condolences. We need a little more old school in the communication world.

    Just my opinion.

      Paul,
      Yes, taking the time is one of the things that we have convinced ourselves we no longer have. We have the time. But the tech was built by people who REALLY know what they are doing and what they are doing to us. It works.

  3. I really liked this one. Glad to hear you acknowledge that social media, like instagram, which I use to maintain contact with local artists for the most part, can be used wisely, which I think I am doing. Thanks for the heads up on Discord, never heard of it. Looks interesting. I have a stack of blank postcards that I have been meaning to use by printing photos and sending them to friends and family, as well as my zine mailing list. I needed that kick in the pants. Guess I’m back, even if you did piss me off by trashing one of my favorite cameras.
