This is a replay of episode 26 with Katy Walker and Joel Mejia. Life can sometimes overwhelm us. We get bogged down by all the negative things around us. That's why it was such a pleasure to do an interview with people like Katie and Joel. Their positivity, and inspirational work is something we should all aspire to follow.

---

Katy Walker and Joel Mejia are the co-directors of the Time is Art documentary, a film that follow’s Jennifer Palmer’s journey after her aunt’s death and her exploration of synchronicity. They are also the minds behind Things Are Changing Productions, a creative collective that produces youth media programs, indie films, and music videos. In this episode we explore what you must do to take action, why you should work with limitations, and the benefits of empowering others.

Here are three things you can learn from Katy and Joel:

You should look inward for answers

Looking inward is one of the most empowering things people can do. Many of us go days without taking the time to look within ourselves for answers. We are so busy trying to be productive that we forget to think things through.

Most of the time, the answer we are looking for is already within us. The next time you are stuck looking for answers, pause and look inside yourself. You might be surprised by what you discover.

Limitations make you more creative

Big budget blockbusters have an almost an unlimited amount of money to work with. They are given every resource they may need, which might be the reason so many of them fall flat.

Joel believes the best way to get the most out of an artist is to give that artist some limitations. When you are up against a wall, you are forced to come up with a creative solution, which often lead to the best results.

Most of us believe the more free you are, the easier it is to be creative. The problem is, this gives you t oo many options. The next time you are stuck, give yourself some limitations. You may be surprised by the results.

The benefits of empowering others

Katy and Joel are big believers in empowering other people. They believe apprenticeships are a powerful form of teaching. When someone becomes your apprentice, they are not being forced to learn. They are looking for long term value and a longer term education.

They are also running a series of workshops along with the film. This encourages people to engage and collaborate with others, which leads to a more powerful experience. They want people to connect through the film and the workshops and create long terms connections from it.

Nika Annon interviews transmedia artist and producer, Katy Walker, of the documentary film 'Time is Art'. 'Time is Art' is a film about synchronicity and the rise of global collective consciousness. The film was inspired by acclaimed & visionary author José Argüelles’ studies in ancient indigenous wisdom. It explores the idea that modern humanity is immersed in an erroneous and artificial perception of time that deviates from the natural order of the universe. The documentary shows how society has become disconnected from the natural rhythms of the earth by focusing only on money, consumerism and exploitation while deep down inside, individuals crave the return to a foundation of culture, community, and creation.

075. Katy Walker, Joel Mejia | Time Is Art

Play
Read more

Katy Walker and Joel Mejia are two of the main creative forces behind Time Is Art. A film that explores "an artist's search for inspiration in a money-driven society that shuns creativity, and the human search for meaning in a seemingly meaningless world. A cinematic meditation along the lines of Waking Life and Samsara... A film less concerned with linear storytelling and more open to the cycle patterns, the hidden meanings of symbols and the dreamlike overlapping of people, places and moments."
