Six Questions with Matt Cohen

What motivates you?

Being able to research and understand something in great detail and then relaying that info to people in a fun and easily digestible way.

What do you do for a living and what do you love about it?

I work in advertising as a senior copywriter and marketing strategist. My field is incredibly rewarding because I get to spend my days coming up with creative ways to solve business challenges.

Six Questions with Madison Thomas

What motivates you?

For me, like most artists I think, motivation can sometimes be a difficult thing to find. We don’t have clear markers of success and progress like a lot of professions do. From within I think it comes from a place of wanting to share unique stories through film that might not be told otherwise. Externally I find motivation from my communities, friends and my students. When I see my colleagues making cool films and art it motivates me to do the same. My students motivate me with their energy and willingness to learn which motivates me to be the best role model I can be for them but as an artist and as a person.
