What Inspires Me to Do My Job?

In terms of hard work, the motivating factor is working with concept-driven material tasked with making something meaningful, exciting, or more beautiful. And, it is the excitement of getting involved in different editing responsibilities, shaping out the project development and successful delivery.

My former colleagues and friends have amazing things to say about different aspects of film production. I’ve found it incredibly helpful to bounce ideas off other people, employ their thoughts and try new things when I want to find creative solutions to all sorts of aesthetic problems.

What Are My Strengths?

My greatest strength would be to keep the flow and pace of the narrative to create tension, an excellent sense of timing and to deepen the sense of conflict between or within characters. I am enthusiastic about my job and working with footage that has good exposure, contrast and color allow to have some degree of flexibility and creative freedom to quickly choose when editing between two shots.

Background and History

Stylistically, I find my passion for abstract and surrealist art that explores the value of the unconscious and dreams, and fantasy, the inner landscape of the human psyche, and symbolism. Some of my favorite artists are El Greco, Dalí, Amedeo Modigliani, Paul Klee and Pablo Picasso. Below are a few examples of accomplishments that were achieved through great effort and frequent alternations of inspiration.

Wonder is one of my favourite obscure words of all time. It is such a peaceful, fresh and meaningful word. It captures our intuitive understanding of the philosophical term, and the significance, the essence of this whole flow of information and knowledge as a whole.

SOCRATES: “May I ask then whether you will answer in turn and have your words put to the proof? For I certainly think that I and you and every man do really believe, that to do is a greater evil than to suffer injustice: and not to be punished than to be punished.
POLUS: And I should say neither I, nor any man: would you yourself, for example, suffer rather than do injustice?
SOCRATES: Yes, and you, too; I or any man would.
POLUS: Quite the reverse; neither you, nor I, nor any man.
SOCRATES: But will you answer?
POLUS: To be sure, I will; for I am curious to hear what you can have to say” (Plato p. 203).
