Art & Life with Will Goldstein

Today we’d like to introduce you to Will Goldstein.

Will, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I grew up with a rare blood disorder that kept me inside a lot, so I’d watch movies to keep myself entertained. I spent a lot of time doing that when I was a little kid, so movies were a part of my life even at a young age. Once I got older and the disorder became dormant, I started taking an active interest in the whole production aspect of moviemaking. This was during the early years of iMovie. My friends and I would make little videos, slap a slo-mo effect on everything, and layer in a dumb song. Everyone thought we were so technologically advanced.

Since then, I’ve never really gotten tired of making movies. I studied Film in college, learned how to do everything the right way, and started producing indie films. I’ve been jumping from one project to the next since I finished school, focusing on stories about misfits, underdogs, or people who challenge injustice and the status quo.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I make movies, music videos, commercials, and so on. I tend to gravitate towards stories about outsiders and the misunderstood. The unsung heroes that don’t get the credit. The “weird” people that aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo. I was always inspired by stories of people that overcame incredible odds to achieve something, but I felt that those stories were always dressed up in sports movies or overly melodramatic dramas. I like to write or find stories that subvert or appropriate the whole ‘overcoming adversity’ concept.

How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
I’m too young to offer any wisdom on this front. But I think if you’re making work that’s honest and moving for yourself, then you’re way ahead of the game. The last thing we need is another Furious Transmorphing Dinosaur Park remake-sequel/prequel. Please don’t do that.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
There are some feature films on Amazon that I’ve produced. Music videos and commercials on YouTube.
