Being a filmmaker, as well of a writer, the principal attributes of the written and spoken WORD that attracts me most is their life-like attributes. They have feelings, senses, intentions and they evoke emotion. That would be to name a few of the many. This is why I write from the heart. If you draw from a false place you will not be able to bring life to these beautiful tools. Artists of all shapes and sizes tend to be emotionally and mentally tortured people. Frustrated with their inability to alter the past. Perhaps, even fear of not being able to alter their future. They turn to their alone zone or art of choice to attempt and release the pain within.
Armies of WORDS battle everyday to affect society in an array of ways. From bills that are passed, to deceiving speeches that alter perception of a politician, public figure or even a close friend. Stop the brainwashing of the world through false statements. Has there not been enough damage already done throughout history? Hitler took over Germany simply through a deep understanding of the characteristics of a wounded psyche and heart. As well as the affect of disguised words of encouragement with subtext of genocide. This is just one example, so you know what I'm getting at.
Take a trip with me to a stairwell in a shady part of town. Two friends exchange WORDS and product in the stairwell of a local apartment complex. The man who leaves with the product ends up getting robbed by the client and in an attempt to fight back he is stabbed twice. One of which hit a major artery. He later died in the Intensive Care Unit at a local hospital. False and untruthful statements bring bad upon those who it is dealt out to.
If I recall correctly, they used to tell tales about this old man named Karma. What goes around comes around? This has seemingly disappeared. Perhaps, because the negative energy is passed on by individuals that spread their energy in a aggressive manner. Pushing you to feel like them as fast as possible. Energy vampires, essentially. While positive people tend not to push their values upon others so strongly, but rather through a subtle psychological approach.
The one loophole in this mess of a situation is that as an artist, I discovered that with will power and determination you can achieve a piece that changes the perception of those that matter. The imagination we tap into also allows us to design the reality that only a chosen few reside in, "IT MUST BE OUR OWN!"
When you have found this place it is time to join the army of artists, in the fight against untruthful works going on around the globe. Not even necessarily works of the almighty word. As artists we can make a change. We were the catalyst to change throughout history. It's time to show our faces and our passion once again! It's time for an artistic revolution!
I am working on a program/website that is a coalition of artists of all types who write from the heart. We want to hear your story and how it affects your work today.
- WE WANT YOU!
