I always find it difficult to be creative when I'm trying to be creative. Every time I have sit down to create a new video (or any other project for that matter) I always have the hardest time thinking of anything. I have tried a few different "creative exercises" including the one where you just make a list of 100 things. I liked making the list, and it had some unique ideas, but I didn't get to 100 because quite honestly I got bored of it.
That's another problem of mine. I get bored quite easily.
So what is one to do when creativity is unattainable?
Obviously, it should come as no surprise to anyone that I have pushed several ideas into fruition. Most recently, ideas that make little to no sense. Flying into the mouth of the sun? A heavy metal song about steak? Along with a acid-trip style music video? Yeah, I'm not entirely sure anyone would call this "creative" or "artistic," or perhaps those would be the best ways to describe it.
I have come to terms with my "creatively challenged" nature and have decided to do the best thing I can for myself: make whatever comes to mind. It's pretty simple. If I have an idea, no matter how absolutely ridiculous it may seem, I'll make it. While before I may have written it off because I knew it would come off as being abstract or obscure (or just plain weird) I will now be making anything that comes to mind.
I hope you all enjoy the absolute train wrecks that my mind creates.
