WHY DAD MMXI

WHY DAD MMXI was inspired by an unsuccessful grant application of mine. I'd been super excited to make a project that required major funding and was crestfallen to find out that my fellow taxpayers and artist peers didn't feel the same way. I felt like a part of me had died, and I moped around pathetically for weeks. While visiting my Father's house during this time I noticed some marked similarities in our moping/coping behaviours. My Father's art practice has been a sensitive topic in the past few years, and making this video allowed us to have an honest talk about what exactly his creative output and challenges are. I realized that most of the reasons why he would stop making art are totally the reasons why I would throw in the towel at any moment. Conversely, or rather most importantly, we discovered that the reasons to keep producing are shared too.
