My father-in-law was here last weekend. I played him a song I was planning on filming, and asked him to tell me what he saw. I know what I saw but some places I was left blank. He shared a couple of things after but added, “I don’t know how you come up with the concepts for your videos!”
For me, the creative process comes when I hear a song. I always say, “If I can see it, I can do it!” … Mark always says, “If I can see it, I can shoot it!” Yup, that’s how it goes.
With the song I asked my father-in-law to visualize, I realized that the block (emotionally, mentally, physically, etc) I was having was for a reason. I went through the scope of Christmas songs again, searching for the one. …. And it came! That feeling is just so different! When I first heard this new song (will share which one soon), I still had to search for the right storyboard idea. But it came! It came! It came! It’s one of those MOMENTS of AH-HA! And it feels just so awesomely great!!!!
… Now for the approval of Mark and then coordinate the timing and all that! YAAAAY!!! *Wish me luck!*
