Director Statement

Undertaking Moniquea Marion 365 was the biggest creative challenge of my career, forcing myself to create 365 unique character videos. This project was exhausting, exhilarating, and empowering but most importantly taught me that the well of creativity is never dry. By forcing myself to create every day I let go of the preciousness that so often inhibits artists to release their work into the world which was so valuable in the every day process of honing in on my creative voice. It was incredibly rewarding to discover hidden character gems through daily deadlines that otherwise would never have been discovered while expanding my online portfolio to literally hundreds of examples of my creativity. What an incredible journey 2016 has been!
