In this episode, I interview Said Abusaud over Skype about fighting creative boredom and getting skilled in multiple different creative disciplines, inspirations for short films, and thinking about your work conceptually.
*Skype connection was really sketchy, so this episode has been heavily edited to maintain audio quality. 3 cheers for Said being extra patient and answering questions multiple times! I had to severely edit this episode so that everything would make sense and not sound glitchy, so bear with me when it still does sound a little funky.
THINGS WE TALKED ABOUT:
Creative versatility and why it’s great to dabble in multiple different mediums
Creating a visual gallery collective of amazing artists in the Dallas area: Afterglow Gallery
The meaning behind art and the conceptual intentions put behind releasing artwork
Being extremely particular in who you work with
Inspirations for short films Said has made
Why you should release artwork whether or not you think it’s good because you never know who might be affected by it
How Said gets a lot of creative inspiration from dreams
Said’s obsession with Twin Peaks!
Here are some press pieces about Said and his project Afterglow Gallery:
