As storytellers, we strive to create pieces of art that resonate deeply with our audiences and move them to see aspects of the world or themselves in a new light, but we all know that getting there can be challenging. We must overcome obstacles in the industry and within ourselves to find our voices in the stories that we want to tell. Sometimes, we clear the hurdles and other times we fail, but it is in how we approach our missteps that dictates our growth. Many would argue that failure is, in fact, a necessary part of the creative process.
In their webinar, Brave Storytelling, filmmakers Heather Rae, Kimberly Peirce, Tyger Williams, Justin Chon, and Rudy Valdez reflect on their own creative paths and give insight into failures that they’ve experienced and grown from.
