I think the biggest misconception of all is that queer people are in the closet because we are too scared to be out and went looking for a place to hide. That’s not how we got there. The closet was being built around us before we even experienced sexual attraction: with bricks of hetero- and cisnormativity and bi-erasure, held together by the mortar of prejudice and stereotype, and reinforced with severe homo-, bi- and transphobia.

WHERE THE REST OF IT THO?????? THIS SHIT IS FLAME!!!!

aw c’mon, this is painful, don’t tease us like that :< SHOW US THE REST!

The filmmaker is Joshua Umia, a 17-year-old Nigerian student. Here’s an interview with him and here’s an article about his process (he films on a Blackberry).

You can watch more of his work on his YouTube channel, Filmic Star Production. This includes the video above, Akenzua Flash vs Zoom – the clip here’s actually as long as it gets, there’s no extra scenes removed for the Tumblr version. However, the YouTube channel does have a ton of his work that’s in this vein, so you could probably piece it all together if you want.

Support this boy!

The dopest part is there is NO DIALOGUE but its SO FLAME tho. Prooooops!

I think y’all overlooked the fact that he films on a fucking blackberry like y’all don’t understand how proud I am to be African, we can create something amazing with so little resources. I’m subscribing to him.

Just reading this back gives me chills.

One reason that people have artist’s block is that they do not respect the law of dormancy in nature. Trees don’t produce fruit all year long, constantly. They have a point where they go dormant. And when you are in a dormant period creatively, if you can arrange your life to do the technical tasks that don’t take creativity, you are essentially preparing for the spring when it will all blossom again.

Marshall Vandruff, one of the best teachers I have ever had, on artist’s block. Said during a webinar done on Visualarium to advertise his upcoming online course on animal anatomy (source links to webinar)  (via pale-afternoon)

This is actually really important to know – like, the number of times I mentally beat myself up for not producing 2000 words a day like “good” writer friends (remembering also that said writer friends don’t also have normal jobs that take portions of their time and creative energy) when actually it’s totally normal and fine not to be in a constant state of massive creative output.  You just have to trust that even if the ideas aren’t flowing right this very second doesn’t mean they won’t start flowing again soon.
