Why "I Could Have Easily..." Is A Terrible And Dumb Phrase

There's surprisingly a lot of instances where I see athletes say, "I could have easily been like Michael Jordan" or "We could have easily won today." What? If it was so easy, then they would have done it. Not only does it diminish the accomplishments of others, it also creates a false narrative that these things are easy. It allows for excuses. And this sort of thinking carries into creative endeavors. But I have an approach that works to reverse this so anyone can actually do those things.

Find Creative Ways To Make Your Movies For Cheap (Advice To Filmmakers To Make Features & Shorts)

One of the biggest advantages I have is I've trained for years to overcome financial limitations in creative projects.

Ways To Create Movie Credits: From Hard/Cheap To Easy/Costly

Why You Need To Be Timely With Your Responses If You Want Results

You'd be amazed at how many times I see people ask a favor from someone and then try to also dictate that favor on their terms. It doesn't work like that. Whoever is asking the favor needs to comply with the demands of the person being asked. This thinking extends itself into other areas of life and then people wonder why their projects aren't getting done. So, in this episode, I explore this topic both from the perspective of the "client" as well as the "freelancer."

How To Tackle Tough Subjects As An Artist

There's always a lot happening in the world and we feel compelled to say something about it. But what do we say?

Do We Devalue Art Based On How We Talk About It?

Don't Let Perfect Be The Enemy Of Good

Reflecting On The Morality Of TV Characters & What Responsibility Artists Have In Creating Them

There are many objectionable characters on TV, yet we look up to them. I can think of Ross from Friends, E from Entourage, Zack Morris from Saved By The Bell. In fact, there's a whole YouTube series dedicated to how heinous Zack is (Zack Morris Is Trash: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRcB4n4CGcy_r21EedmNUOyVP_puToBfr). And maybe you can think of other examples. But the real point is, what role does an artist have in creating this morality? That's what I explore in this episode, so tune in.

In Five Years (Rebecca Serle) In-Depth Book Discussion

Marisa Serafini (@serafinitv) and I are book lovers and we've decided to do a monthly in-depth book discussion. Our fifth book is In Five Years by Rebecca Serle and next month we'll be chatting about Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years Of Solitude.   What's In Five Years about?    "When Type-A Manhattan lawyer Dannie Kohan is asked this question at the most important interview of her career, she has a meticulously crafted answer at the ready. Later, after nailing her interview and accepting her boyfriend's marriage proposal, Dannie goes to sleep knowing she is right on track to achieve her five-year plan.   But when she wakes up, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. The television news is on in the background, and she can just make out the scrolling date. It’s the same night—December 15—but 2025, five years in the future.   After a very intense, shocking hour, Dannie wakes again, at the brink of midnight, back in 2020. She can’t shake what has happened. It certainly felt much more than merely a dream, but she isn’t the kind of person who believes in visions. That nonsense is only charming coming from free-spirited types, like her lifelong best friend, Bella. Determined to ignore the odd experience, she files it away in the back of her mind.   That is, until four-and-a-half years later, when by chance Dannie meets the very same man from her long-ago vision.  Brimming with joy and heartbreak, In Five Years is an unforgettable love story that reminds us of the power of loyalty, friendship, and the unpredictable nature of destiny."   Official reading guide (from Rebecca Serle's website): https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5a7e0c6e32601e918efdbc04/t/603d8c75be32591be4920cc9/1614646395067/79531_InFiveYears+DesignedRGGUpdatefor+PB.pdf https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5a7e0c6e32601e918efdbc04/t/603d8c75be32591be4920cc9/1614646395067/79531_InFiveYears+DesignedRGGUpdatefor+PB.pdf  Thanks for tuning in.

Always Offer Value, Unconditionally, And Good Things Happen In Unexpected Ways

I've always had the experience that whenever I offer someone more value, I get more in return. And based on books, podcasts, etc, I know I'm not the only one. Except, you can't do it for that reason. The value you offer has to be unconditional. And that's what I discuss in this lesson.

The Difference Between Someone Giving You Their Free Time Vs Freeing Their Time For You

Our time in precious and so who were choose to give our time and energy to is important. How do you decide that?

Life Hack: Maintain A Regular Sleep Schedule

From my experience, many people either don't have regular sleep schedules OR if they do, they have one for week days and one for the weekend. Your body cannot differentiate between the two and you're not at your most optimal if you alternate between the two. That's why my advice is to stick to a regular sleep schedule EVERY DAY.

Dogme 95: A Case Study of How So-Called Rules Force Creativity

Dogme 95 was a filmmaking movement started in 1995 by the Danish directors Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg, who created the "Dogme 95 Manifesto." The rules they made up were used to create films based on the traditional values of story, acting, and theme, and excluding the use of elaborate special effects or technology. It was supposedly an attempt to "take back power for the directors as artists", as opposed to the studio. They were later joined by fellow Danish directors Kristian Levring and Søren Kragh-Jacobsen, forming the Dogme 95 Collective. In this episode, I highlight this movement as a case study of why limitations force creativity, something that applies well beyond just filmmaking. So check out this episode and please share your thoughts down in the comment section or hit me up on social media @PhilSvitek.    For those curious, here are all the Dogme 95 rules:    1. Shooting must be done on location. Props and sets must not be brought in (if a particular prop is necessary for the story, a location must be chosen where this prop is to be found).   2. The sound must never be produced apart from the images or vice versa. (Music must not be used unless it occurs where the scene is being shot.)   3. The camera must be hand-held. Any movement or immobility attainable in the hand is permitted.   4. The film must be in colour. Special lighting is not acceptable. (If there is too little light for exposure the scene must be cut or a single lamp be attached to the camera.)   5. Optical work and filters are forbidden.   6. The film must not contain superficial action. (Murders, weapons, etc. must not occur.)   7. Temporal and geographical alienation are forbidden. (That is to say that the film takes place here and now.)   8. Genre movies are not acceptable.   9. The film format must be Academy 35 mm.   10. The director must not be credited.   And some of the films to have come out of this movement are:    • Dogme #2: The Idiots   • Dogme #3: Mifune's Last Song   • Dogme #4: The King Is Alive   • Dogme #5: Lovers   • Dogme #6: Julien Donkey-Boy   • Dogme #8: Fuckland   • Dogme #12: Italian for Beginners   • Dogme #13: Amerikana   • Dogme #14: Joy Ride   • Dogme #15: Camera   • Dogme #18: Truly Human   • Dogme #28: Open Hearts   Lastly, for more free resources from your 360 creative coach, check out my website at http://philsvitek.com.    RESOURCES/LINKS: -Coach or Consultant Services: https://philsvitek.com/lets-work-together/ -Love Market Film: https://www.amazon.com/Love-Market-Amy-Cassandra-Martinez/dp/B09DFS3FTZ/ref=sr_1_14 -Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/philsvitek -Master Mental Fortitude Book: http://mastermentalfortitude.com http://mastermentalfortitude.com/ -Elan, Elan Book: http://philsvitek.com/elan-elan -In Search of Sunrise Book: http://philsvitek.com/in-search-of-sunrise -A Bogotá Trip Film: https://philsvitek.com/a-bogota-trip/
