We asked AFF Alum Jordan Jones how he balances filmmaking with every day life. His new project is called FLUIDIC. Find more information on their kickstarter page.
Q. How do you manage your life in a way that allows you to create art and maintain your other responsibilities outside of work?
A. Focus. You can get lost in the things that inspire you to be an artist, instead of actually working on your art. I can sit down to work and spend most of my time looking at other people’s work. The work that I was supposed to get done now requires more time, time that gets taken away from something else at home. No balance. You must stay focused on what you want to create. Try to limit checking your email. Don’t let social media take up your creative time. Stop googling. I constantly ask myself, “Do you want to watch movies or make movies?” If I can focus on my creative work, which allows me to fulfill my responsibilities at home, then I am able to focus on my creative work. Its a creative balance.
The Kickstarter campaign was a success and Fluidic was made.
