the last creative tuesday

2020 has been a rough year for many. I don’t want to complaint, but I do need to follow my hearth. Next year I want things to change and find back my passion for filmmaking.

How it Started

On November the 6th, I decided to upload every Tuesday. Later this series was named ‘Creative Tuesday’. It’s idea was simple: share a tutorial video about filmmaking techniques or video editing.

At the time I graduated from film school and had already worked on many projects for various clients. There was a ton of information and experience in my mind that I wanted to share with the world.

Exhaustion

Today I feel exhausted. I honestly don’t know what tutorial to make anymore. I mean, I can continue with producing tutorials for many years, but making tutorials that I feel passionate about has faded.

In the past couple of months I’ve been thinking a lot about this and trying to figure out what’s wrong with me. And I believe that I’m not exhausted with making YouTube videos, but with having a schedule of ‘needing’ to make tutorials.

Tutorial Videos

When I start to work on a new Creative Tuesday tutorial video, I think of different tips and tricks that I could share. At this point, I have shared everything I know. And this is what makes me feel so bad.

I’m at a ceiling and it’s time to break through that ceiling. It’s time that I go out and learn new things by experimenting, failing, challenging myself and most import; not limiting myself.

heading into 2021

In 2021 I want to work on various of video projects like short films or film experiments. Projects that don’t always succeed, projects that don’t always have an educational value. I want to show the creative process behind these projects and hopefully inspire those who chose to watch.

I wish you all happy Holidays, stay safe, but most importantly; Stay Creative!

    I’ve greatly enjoyed you guys over the years and have learned a lot from you. But I totally get how something can turn into a grind, especially during this hectic year! I’m glad you’re going to change things up and recharge those batteries. An artist needs to do that in order to keep one’s passions.

    I look forward to seeing what 2021 has in store from Cinecom and I wish you and the rest of the guys a very merry holiday and a well deserved time off.

    Cheers,

  7. You guys rock! I work for a TV station editing commercials. I want to put out the best product every time I edit, but sometimes the grind gets to me and it’s all I can do to just get it done and out the door! That isn’t conducive to creativity. So, I understand the need to take a breath and reevaluate your situation and come up with a new way to stay creative and fresh. Keep up the good work whether it’s weekly or monthly or whatever you need.

  9. Jordy,

    I think that it’s excellent (and frankly, necessary) to evaluate one’s needs and wants regularly. I’m happy for you that you’re listening to yourself and making changes based upon that little voice inside. I’ve spent several years watching your videos, and I greatly appreciate what you’ve given so freely to the community that you’ve created here.

    Happy Holidays and my best wishes for a fulfilling 2021!!
