Don’t Collect Dust

Don’t Collect Dust

That is my advice to you, the video producer.  The ailing creator.

If you have a camera, don’t let it collect dust.  If you don’t have a job to shoot with it, create something.  A web series.  Some shots you can sell on Pond5 for stock video. Just something fun with your friends.

If you really want to be a video person, you won’t get anywhere without experience under your belt.  And you don’t need a job necessarily to get that experience.  “Don’t collect dust” is something I’ve said to many videographers I’ve talked to that own a camera.  Even if it’s a consumer camera, you have to start somewhere.

The idea spreads to all creatives.  If you’re a writer, write something.  Even if you’re not sharing it, do it.  See how you feel about it and determine if this is something you are passionate about that you could do every day for the rest of your life.  That’s how you know that is the thing you want to do.

If you have the podcast bug and you lost your cohosts to life and circumstances, you will find a way.

In Jurassic Park, “nature finds a way”, and so does your creative ventures.
