Come Find Rest

    Pre-production is full steam ahead, and we’re as tenacious as ever.

    We’re at the airport check in, ready to go somewhere we’ve never been, double checking our bags, bravely walking to the unknown- *sigh* you guys get the picture. We’re making a movie.

    There’s a million things happening at once right now, people are in and out of the office, everyone has somewhere to go, something to do, or someone to see. In the midst of all this I’m (ironically) learning so much about taking the initiative to stop and rest. Sometimes what we need most are those small moments of rest, to be still. It’s a yin-yang of work and rest, harmoniously working together to create peace of mind.

    Rest is the last thing I thought I would be learning about now, but it’s this time of high energy and activity that’s opening my eyes to the value of it all. Like a man who’s just found water in the dessert, you never see the value of something until it’s scarce. Still, finding rest isn’t easy, amidst all the stress of work, it can feel overwhelming and impossible, and you have to push through though. Even if it’s taking a moment saying hello to someone, or getting away from the computer and just going for a little walk to clear the head, it makes all the difference.

    Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said “Activity and rest are two vital aspects of life. To find a balance in them is a skill in itself. Wisdom is knowing when to have rest, when to have activity, and how much of each to have. Finding them in each other – activity in rest and rest in activity – is the ultimate freedom.”

    So whether you’re an independent filmmaker or not, be sure to take the time, even if just for a moment, and rest.
