My passion for filmmaking, writing, and acting is rooted so incredibly deep within my heart and beyond the realms of my soul. Writing, creating, this is an innate process to our nature as human beings, and though some choose to attain the mastery of these blatant art forms: film, literature, painting, music and more – these means of expression are meant for all on some level in order to grow as individuals.
As an artist, my duty is to walk the, at times, both treacherous and blissful paths of life coherently, and through this perpetual process I shall continuously attain a better understanding of myself and society as whole, thus bringing us together in the form of true entertainment by way of individual experience; because within our uniqueness and individuality is an energetic unity and shared experience stemming from the same ego driven fears, self-righteous demeanors, and existential dilemmas. Our celebrations and tragedies are all shared, and this is why art supersedes time by simply exploiting them, like an introspective journal shared shamelessly, and like the words of a poet. Purposeful art delivers thought-provoking means of expression by shaking the audience and having them in either tears or immense laughter or even both simultaneously; emotionally imperative creations from the conscious-unconscious creative soul have the audience reevaluate their morals and make them too capable of ingeniousness. Blood-trailed creations leave us with this solid reminder: Life is about constantly rediscovering your Higher-Present-Self in the depths of the frequently visiting treacherous abyss over and over and over again, trekking through to the golden light, and endlessly overcoming by simply making peace with what is and what is not – this is courageous fearlessness: taking all of our blisses and sufferings and expelling them upon the tethered canvas. The best art comes from great pain and the best flowers come from sweet rain.
Now that you know how truly well-thought I am as to what I do, let me tell you my accolades: I’m an autodidact (self-taught) artist that has self-produced over 40 films (including 4 features and a lot of long shorts). In these films I write, direct, act, do the cinematography, editing, sound, and in my most recent feature film I even composed the original score; this is something I will now be doing for the rest of my career. I’ve published 13 books varying between philosophy, poetry, comedic essays, academic, and narrative fiction, and I have several more books in the works. I’ve written hundreds of screenplays, quite a few plays, and even starred in off-Broadway productions as well. I’ve recently been writing and producing songs, music videos, and melodies, as it was something I always wanted to do.
I created my company LowWiseZah Studios in order to generate my own original content, both visual and literary, but also with the means of collaborating with other like-minded production companies and to help artists that share the same passionately persistent drive. You will not meet a more determined and creative being than I.
As I’ve always said: I’m famous; my audience just hasn’t found me yet… but they will.
And I may already be famous, but I didn’t yet change this statement/bio, so if that’s the case, omit that… though the saying does ring endless. But just so I don’t forget, let me just say: I am fuckin’ famous (without the materialistic and superficial ties).
With immense love and gratitude,
