It's amazing how getting a frank appraisal from someone you admire about the state of their own life and body of work can snap you out of a funk. Zack Arias's Transform is a personal look inside the life of a successful artist. If you thought that success was all excitement and hundred dollar bills, you're wrong. Often the life of an artist is rife with uncertainty, inadequacy, and feelings of regret. This video is an intense look into those emotions. A rare glimpse at the vulnerability of someone who's struggled and worked to get to where they are.
Shot on a Flip HD camera in and around the city of Atlanta, it shows that the best camera is the one that's with you. The shots are stark and beautiful. The music is haunting and dramatic and the message is clear. RELAX. You're not the only one who feels this way.
It's not about perfection, it's about putting one foot in front of the other.
It's important to realize that everyone's always struggling. They're just doing so at different points along the path. The guy that seems like he's got it all figured out is just a few steps ahead of you, looking at the guy in front of him - wondering how HE does it.
Anyway, watch this. You'll really be glad you did.
