Wishcast Weds ! What inspiration do you wish to follow ?

Hello Wishcasters ! Another Wednsday of making wishes come true with Jamie Ridler . Today she asks ," What inspiration do you wish to follow ? " . That one is pretty easy for me . I told you last week that I had been embarking on something different , something daring . That was making films . My style of filmmaking is the late Andy Warhol . I was told once , when I didn't take my films seriously;that my films reminded them of Andy Warhol , I thought , " What ? I didn't know Andy Warhol did films , I thought he was just a artist ? " Well he was an artist and filmmakers are artist . Andy loved to see people as his muse . He loved filming them when they weren't looking , or when they were voicing their opinion . I film in that same manner , and didn't even know it . Last saturday , I went to a art gallery called The Hive . I had been there before but just saw it as a art gallery and nothing more . I then became friends with one of the artist on facebook named Yuki Miyazaki . I asked her if I could interview her and put her in my film I am making , she said yes , but, that she wanted me to meet all the other artist of The Hive , I agreed ,and was very excited! I realized that the art gallery wasn't just that , it was much more , a community of people who just wanted to be their true selves . My camera was my looking glass to a world I didn't know existed , and I wanted to be part of that world.
Everyone was so nice and invited me with open arms . The owner agreed to allow me to do the film on The Hive gallery and after his show , he invited me to his loft party , I got my Andy Warhol footage & very excited to make this film on the unknown and unheard musicians of Los Angeles .

So what inspiration do I wish to follow ? The late , and amazing Andy Warhol ,who inspires me to be the filmmaker I am and not be afraid to show the world the freaky artist and musicians of this world , because my muses are so amazing , I find people fascinating , I like to hear their thoughts , show who they are . My camera is your looking glass....

Thanks for listening and as you wish for yourself , I totally wish for you also.

  9. Thank you so much for the kind comment this morning! I'll have to look into "art journaling" - it sounds very intriqueing. I appreciate your support :)

    I came over here to say that, and noticed that my comment from yesterday wasn't here! We've been having computer problems, so maybe it disappeared into the ethers?? ANYWAY, Andy Warhol was an amazing artist and personality. What a wonderful compliment to be compared to him!

    It sounds like you are ready to take off with your film-making!! As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well!

  10. Really cool! Have fun.
    I´ve been tweaking the sparkles prompts a lot. ;) Have you started on any of the other courses you won? Enjoy. :)

  11. That is quite wonderful! I enjoy watching Warhol films, although I have no desire to ever be in front of the camera. LOL
    This sounds so fun! Go for it! As you wish for yourself, I wish for you too!!

  12. Thanks Wishcasters for all your support & wishing with me . I feel its an exciting time for us all!
