Met Nabil Elderkin at the Creative Mornings, Los Angeles. He is the director of stunning, cinematic music videos for the likes of Bon Iver, Jon Legend, Kanye West, Antony and The Johnsons, and many others.
Some ways he’s finding inspiration? Driving around LA, texting notes on his phone as ideas pop in, digging through his archives of past ideas and unrealized treatments, living life and being open to whatever comes, and exploring Vimeo. He recognizes so much talent and experimental filmmakers on Vimeo, it’s a great way for him to discover budding filmmakers. Platforms like Vimeo level the playing field… make art and upload it, the chances are, someone out there will be watching it. Nabil reinforces the idea that if you make good work and are passionate about what you do, things can happen.
Thanks Nabil for posing here for me.
