Experiencing Interruptions?

b l o c k e d .

Many people, especially those in a creative field suffer from insecurities when starting a new project. We often don't know where to start, and even question whether or not we have the skills necessary to create the image we see in our heads. These doubts haunt our minds until we are able to work up the courage and motivation needed to start our next undertaking. This experimental film focuses on visual representations of these anxieties that hinder the creative process.

Director Statement

In "b l o c k e d .", I wanted to create visuals that embodied the feelings associated with a creative barrier. When trying to think of ideas for both films and other artistic projects, I, like many others, feel as if an impassible obstacle has been placed between them and their ability to think creatively. While making this film, I used the feelings of hopelessness that were previously holding me back to drive me forward instead and create something I could be proud of.
