My friend asked if I could help her create content for a competition. I was hesitant at first but the more I thought about it, the more reason it gave me to take up filming again after such a long hiatus:
What is success? I believe it's a lack of agitation, discontent and irritation in your being in a world that profits from your self doubt – Loving yourself is a rebellious act. Not only do you need to learn how to distinguish yourself from primal drives and cultural influences, you'll need to detach and unidentify yourself from it.
I don't know if it's the vain bastard within me – But I really enjoy watching myself design, I hope you do too – Follow my page HelloMaza
I discovered this cosy spot that peeks over Chinatown on a Friday night and I couldn't help to notice how attached a girl was to her phone – I can't express in words how it irritated me, so I hope it translates through the visuals.
I have always wanted to film and edit a design tutorial – No reason. I grew up on watching tutorials, I guess it's my way of giving back...
I like to believe that as a society, we've been preprogrammed to cut curiosity, weirdness and creativity during the coming of age – But why? The world at night can be so much fun when the ingredient of curiosity is added to the mix.
My film style is starting to become more distinguishable – I've become obsessed with toying the depth of field and synchronisation. I also decided to invest in a tripod... the lack of stabilisation gave me a headache.
I did something spontaneous today – I bought a camera. I don't know why, I guess I felt like learning something new since all my creative and expressive outlets have been abused. This is my journey home, it's literally a bumpy ride without a stabiliser.
