making stuff for a good while now. Chances are you've seen one of my old web
shows, or my short film "TUB", or a painting
I did or maybe you heard about "The Master Cleanse" - my first feature film! Regardless: Hi!
independent artist, I think it's incredibly important to find your
audience and connect with them. But, things have changed a lot.
Facebook now charges money to promote facebook updates, YouTube's
subscriber feed randomly hides videos you make, and Twitter...Well,
there's a lot of noise on Twitter.
how does a person really connect?
My solution was to go back to "the old days" and start an email
I also like
newsletters because they give me some space to talk about stuff! Put
things in context. For example, in
this newsletter I mentioned how my video totally bombed on youtube.
In a tweet, I can't have that level of candor and all nuance is lost.
Connecting with people on twitter has simply become: "HEY YOU! WATCH
And man, is
that boring. And not very personal.
Lastly - I'm
not making an email list to bombard you with emails. If you look at this archive, you'll see I'm very
practical about it. I often email when I have a few things to look at -
instead of one thing. As seen in this sample newsletter.
thanks so much for reading all of this and for your support.
It means a lot.
