Enjoy the Ride

Being part of a team is a great thing, especially when you get to collaborate with people from different backgrounds and with unique thought processes.

But somethings you “need to learn is that” it is OK to not be in control of the situation and learn to be a passenger on the ride.

This past weekend, the Wild and Untamed Creative team performed their first official production day and let me tell you, it was a long day.

We had two different projects filmed.

One of which I took lead, and the Second I was support staff

As you can see from this weeks featured photo, you can tell their was definitely a difference in the shoots.

Because I am “hands on” person, it took me a minute to adjust from being lead to support. By having various supporting roles in the project, the creative team and I were able to take a different perspective on the outcome and both shoots went really well.

Reflecting on that day, it dawned on me that: truly working as a cohesive team showed me and my fellow creatives that by aiding each other and being unified, we were able to obtain a phenomenal end result but by being part of the team, we were able to get to the final result.

Sometimes it is OK to not take the lead.

You just have to sit back and…

ENJOY THE RIDE!!!

 

 

Be The šŸ“

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 meansĀ  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.
