The Urge

Awhile back I wrote a piece about the struggle to create content versus creating good content. The urge to create content never goes away for me. I do have other things I'm focusing on right now with grad school, a new job search and something I can't talk about right now. (Teaser!) But lately, I keep thinking about shooting something...anything. I just keep hearing the opening line from "Can't Fight This Feeling" from REO Speedwagon in my head.

It never fades. I'm writing, but not enough. And even when I'm writing, that doesn't quell the desire to get behind the lens and tell a story. It's a bit different this time around. It''s not about getting a reel together. It's not about submitting to festivals. I just want to tell a story. I just want to create good content. That's it.

Ideally, I'd like to shoot something once a month or once every two months. Churning out short film after short film. That should quench that thirst.

Yeah. That'll do it.

Here's the REO Speedwagon music video: Pretty sure that's Tony Sudol on piano. (inside joke)
