"if you know the words, feel free" 2015. directed, photographed and edited by artemus jenkins

this film began making it clear to me, that most of the good stuff comes when you aren't looking for it. this project took place when afropunk was planning their first major concert here in Atlanta and it was brought to my attention, they wanted to do a piece that highlighted the creatives in the city. I had done plenty of those quick Q & A style pieces in the past, so I was looking for an excuse to put a spin on that idea. what came out was a loosely scripted, day in the life style piece centered around who we are as creatives, making life happen with our art. this piece focused the conversation on the fact that although we are all pursuing something different with our passions, our experiences intersect in a number of ways and sharing that information helps us all grow.
