Being a creative means it is always great being part of a team; it helps lighten the load of responsibility and true creativity emerges from collaboration.
At Wild and Untamed, our Creative Team has started a trend by using the catch phrase
“BE THE CHICKEN.”
Now, what does that mean?
We all know the joke, “Why did the Chicken cross the road?” and the normal response would be, “To get to the other side.”
But did you ever think about the struggle of the chicken?
Crossing the road means to step out of his or her comfort zone.
As creatives, we need to be the chicken and to CROSS THE ROAD!!! We need to step out of our comfort zone and create and do new things and not be afraid to accomplish them. We need to use our creativity to constantly push the barrier and try things out and see if they work.
For my team, this picture really shows us how to push beyond our barriers.
We tried an innovative idea with our lights by creating new and different silhouette effects and by making the conscious decision to step out, we fell in love with the end result.
We incorporated this new method especially with our photos! We even went the extra mile to contact Visual Media Church and make an attempt to collaborate with them. Which as matter a fact was a major success by the looks on the screen!
It always helps to cross that road when you aren’t the only one crossing it.
so “BE THE CHICKEN”…
But that doesn’t mean be the ONLY chicken.
