It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day, but it’s important to stop and ask: what’s the end goal? Knowing where you are trying to go is step one in getting there and so we’ve asked some folks we admire to tell us their end goal and where they want to be by the end of their careers.

Elpiniki Georgiou | Makeup & Special Effects Artist

As an artist my main goal is to grow and explore as many aspects of myself as possible. I like experimenting with several mediums and develop them to the point I am satisfied with. Now I’m mostly focused on embroidery, which helped me a lot during lockdown and it kept me busy as there were no film productions happening at the time. It started as a hobby but seeing it develop into a small business made me really happy and pleased with myself. Now, as a Makeup & Special FX Artist in the film industry I would say that I have a goal which needs time and opportunities in order to be achieved. I would really love to be part of short, feature and blockbuster films and work with people that will help me develop as an artist and boost my passion even more. I want to gain as much experience as possible next to outstanding makeup artists and get to really know what it takes to be a part of a big production. Read more>>

Roni Feldman | Painter

Happy and at peace. Many years ago, a friend of mine obtained some letters from a very famous writer. They were written just a few months before they passed away at a ripe old age. In these letters, the author bemoaned how they couldn’t get a novel turned in to a movie and how they still had to hustle for every achievement and smidgeon of recognition. I learned from this that accolades and fame are fickle and never satiating as there is always a higher peak to be climbed. I will always keep climbing, but that’s because I enjoy the climb. I love coming up with new ideas and the almost meditative act of bringing them to fruition. I love seeing others make my paintings a part of their lives. At the end of my career, I hope to feel that I lived freely, bravely, kindly, and wisely. Regardless of the amount of outward success I achieve, I will make art I believe in, that continually pushes its boundaries to better evoke the qualities, ideas, and experiences I want to share with the world.
