happy museum selfie day!

the joy of creating — sundays with bob ross part 5 with @housespecialpdx (!!!) and art director, gee staughton (@dontfretdotorg) #mydaywithbob

such a cool studio visit with one of my favorite production houses! had a blast looking behind the scenes and seeing how the sausage is made and the teeny sets and figurines that the creators labor over. so neat!

have a good sunday people!


the joy of creating — sundays with bob ross part 4 featuring @jonburgerman (!!!!) #mydaywithbob

go check out jon’s stuff. it’s great and his stories are super funny too! it was really neat to meet him and eat breakfast sandwiches at peter pans and chat about exploring the tools on social media platforms creatively.

it was really funny because a woman sitting next to us at the counter sneakily took a picture of us from like the chin down (probably because of jon’s sweatshirt) and we started talkin about her taking our picture (we could see it on her phone) but she pretended not to hear us.

🔊part 4 of 5 love letters to new york films. #mydaywithnewyorkmovies (here l recreated one of my favorite small moments in film: margot tenenbaum’s strained interaction with her mother, ethelene, in the royal tenenbaums (starring @kai_stamps as margot 💃🏼❤️👌🏻📸 and shot outside the real tenenbaum house in harlem.)) i could blab for days about wes anderson stuff and this movie or this scene. but i’m gonna focus on one thing for this: something i find remarkable about his movies is that you could accidentally walk into a new wes anderson movie 30 minutes late and within 30 seconds, you’d know it was a wes anderson movie.

that’s not the end all be all of a filmmaker but it is difficult to maintain a unique, identifiable aesthetic in this day and age considering his body of work and string of profitable films. and it’s something i think about on a lesser scale with my own work.
i’ve had a lot of conversations over the last couple years about… broadening my aesthetic or my style. i’m told i’d be more marketable to brands if my videos were less… niche or my process was quicker. and i’m sure there’s some truth to that and i imagine someday i will spread my wings and start to work in a way that allows me to create more in less time. it’s not like building hand-crafted stop motion videos is a quick and easy process. and i don’t want to look back in 20 years time and see 4 minutes of content…. heh.

but for now, i can’t explain to you how neat it is when someone sees work i did for a brand, out of context, recognizes that it’s mine and forwards it to me. maybe i’m not thinking about the right things a creator should be thinking about, especially if you want to make a million dollars. but to be fair mostly when i’m working i’m just trying to make something fun that i’d want to watch (that’s shot with the limitations i’ve placed on myself for my creative process!!). it’s not like the desire to be unique is my primary focus or anything. but i would be lying if i said uniqueness isn’t somewhere in my mind every day i’m working.

it’s #GivingTuesday and i teamed up with @childrenofpromisenyc to raise awareness for children with incarcerated parents and today donations are matched dollar for dollar by a private foundation (link in @childrenofpromisenyc ’s bio!!)!! this group does such neat work providing a sanctuary and after school programs for these kids. many of these kids have been through real traumatic experiences, like watching a parent get arrested or having to visit that parent in jail. it’s just not fair what these kids have to go through and how much their support system has been torn down around them.

every child in children of promise’s program has access to private and group therapy sessions and also can write letters to their parents and learn to process their feelings through art, all under the guidance of a clinician.

it’s really just a special place and they’re doing such great work for an issue that is so under-addressed. right now, 2 million people are incarcerated in america. that’s awful. mass incarceration does terrible things to people and has tremendous, negative impacts on societies and future generations. and it needs to be addressed... but in the meantime, we have to face the reality that there are very real little humans feeling the brunt of this and please think of them if yoo can.

these images are from my wonderful visit last fall. this little girl, Dimani, wanted to be beyonce so bad and she nailed the pose and these other little goofballs wanted to be kevin hart and the rock on a slide. xx, joel
