This Q&A was conducted by Michelle Higa and Bran Dougherty-Johnson for Motionographer.
These two new films Nerdmask and Open Your Face And Make Words are promos for your new EP of original music, also titled OYFAMW, which in turn was inspired by a collection of short stories that you wrote. What’s the impetus behind all this self-initiated creative work for you?
We wish we had a more exciting answer, but we are pretty simple and this is just what we like to do professionally and personally. As our creative interests span a few areas, they easily incorporate into our lives. Even when we’re not officially working, it’s easy to tote cameras, play instruments, lay down paint, or sketch story or technical ideas while living our lives. The difference between self-initiated projects and commissioned work is really just a technicality for us as we still put in just as much effort and focus into it all. Like any others in similar fields, it can be a bit of a compulsion. Our backgrounds and interests in the fine arts probably have a lot to do with this. The taught practice of continually creating and outputting work was instilled in our younger years by mentors and teachers and is a hard one to shake off.
We work a lot, but we’re all trying to find the balance, aren’t we? Seeing as we are married and share the same interests, it only serves to amplify and mutually encourage both of us to keep creating. Not to be completely corny, but we really are lucky to have found each other as any normal person wouldn’t want to hear about any of this stuff. Laugh!
