I wanted, want, the Center to support all the arts, but trying to do everything at once proved to be overwhelming for me, so I am turning the focus to Animation and film making. Animation is complete freedom for a writer. The realization of my first love. Taking my writing and letting it go where ever it needs to go, because with animation you can do anything you can imagine.
Animation also involves every form of art from writing, film making, painting a picture, acting, to creating music and sound. If I make a place where animation can happen I have a place that any type of artist can find a place to be and create.
I feel that art is about creating feelings, expressing emotion, telling a story and it can be a stick figure, or a digital extravaganza. I have been moved by both ends of the spectrum it is the quality of the story and it’s execution that makes the difference. By having a place that is not based in profit, but prosperity, that realization will have a home and place where art does not have to compromise.
