There are times when I hit a creative road block, and that usually happens when I “plan” to be creative. Whether it be in production meetings with my team while concepting a new series for the channel, storyboarding for a client, or simply getting inspired. It was after this unexpected shoot that brought me to a conclusion that creativity is found in the act of “doing”. Ray Bradbury once said,

“Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things”  

It was after  midnight when Karla and I wrapped our shoot for for a client HERE, we were exhausted but exhilarated by the final outcome. Forthcoming dreams, ambitions, and conversations of creative concepts started to unfold.We somehow got into a conversation of the film “Young And Dangerous”,  a Hong Kong film (series) based on a group of childhood friends that grew up together, one of Allen’s all time favorites.  Next thing you know we were in a car en route to CHINATOWN. I have yet to visit China, but i’ve been completely inspired by their culture, rich colors, and bright lights. Hoping and wishing that one day i’ll be able to visit China!

    I love Young and Dangerous. I’ve seen it a hundred times. Definitely formed the Asian-American generation of the 90s. haha love that you referenced to it.
    BTW, your Chinatown looks so cool! The Chinatown in Toronto is just an urban derelicte and has absolutely no character.
