W/ JOEL P WEST
"Everyone needs to keep the lights on. But you don't have to buy expensive lights."
Joel P West is a musician & composer. He’s scored indie film’s like Short Term 12 & Band of Robbers, as well as an episode for the upcoming season of Netflix's Chef's Table.
I first met Joel while working on my second feature-length documentary Design Disruptors. I was instantly stuck by his ability to communicate music and the creative process.
“If I’m going to work on a project it’s going to become an intimate part of my life for a long time. I have to really care about it or it’s going to be a problem."
In our conversation we talk about gaining confidence, enjoying the process & when to turn projects down.
