We’re going to tell you about you some girls that are inspiring us! The first one Is Anise Mariko, it was lovely to meet her so hopefully it helps you to keep creating.
WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU DO IN NY?
I’m Anise Mariko, and I am a Music Video Director in NYC.
HOW DO YOU GET YOUR CREATIVE IDEAS?
My best creative mode is probably when I have a moment to myself, and I’m able to think and remind myself of the values that are most important to me.
HOW’S WORKING IN THE CREATIVE WORLD IN NY? DO YOU LIKE IT?
Working in NYC is so nice- It’s very convenient because there are many young artists and it’s easy to meet people. Everything is accessible, I’ve really loved the past few years working and creating here.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BEST EXPERIENCE IN YOUR CREATIVE WORK?
My best experience creatively was working on “Divine Hammer”, which was actually premiered on Superhero- It was so cool, because I worked with all of my NYC friends on the New York portion of the video- And met new people in Tokyo for the Tokyo portion. I had met the Japanese Creative Director on Instagram, and it was so cool to watch girls from different countries and backgrounds come together to make something beautiful !
HOW CAN BEING CREATIVE COULD HELP THE WORLD’S SITUATION?
Art is the medium that tells the true state of the world through that individual’s eyes. It has the power to tell stories that otherwise wouldn’t be told. For film in particular, someone in the future could very well watch the content being created today and have a better understanding for what it is like to be us, in the current state. Above all, I believe art has the power to create empathy.
