This short video was inspired by a coffee chat with my good friend, Fanny. A actor and writer, she just came back from an intense Television industry conference where she had to pitch her idea for a show. (Great, btw) Although stressful, she also added that it was enormously stimulating to be surround by such creativity.
During the conversation I kept pondering the idea that artists thrive when they’re in cliques or artistic ghettos.
I have always bowed at the alter of creativity and wished that I was a waiter at the Algonquin when Dorothy Parker and the gang had their regular lunch and wit-fest. Or perhaps a butler serving the Bloomsbury crowd while they extracted knives from each other’s backs.
There are many examples of artists living and feeding off of each other’s muse; the Beats, Andy Warhol’s Factory; I’d even add Motown and the Brill building as examples of musicians and artists creating something bigger than what they could have done individually.
