With the first three episodes of SEXKITTENS in the can, I'm looking forward to shooting the next batch next Wednesday. My plan was originally to tape them over the weekend, but I have to help my sister move and our first guest star will also be indisposed. Since next Wednesday is a holiday in these parts, the plan is to make the most of things.
Which is an obvious segue to this: I desperately want to make the most of not only the videos I post to youtube, but also this website. To make the most of anything, I think we can all agree that we need to know what we're talking about. In this case, the heart of it is Horbawrong Studios.

For too long now, I've been driven to produce inventive creative works, but languished behind uninspired vlogs. While I certainly never gave up on inventive creativity, it definitely became a hard-to-find commodity.
After careful consideration, I came up with core values of Horbawrong Studios--the foundation for which everything else should be built upon. In the spirit of brevity, the creed for Horbawrong Studios is to "Create. Engage. Inspire." Be it a story, a video, a series, a comic, or anything else, I want this to be the heart through which my creativity beats.
I know that to fully embrace this creed, especially on this website, I have a lot of work ahead of me. I know this, and that's why I'm not rushing anything. As negatively as I might have painted the vlogs, there was something very good that came out of it: the community. One of the major tasks that lay before me is to find inventive ways to re-engage this community. No doubt that not all of my ideas will be winners, but I promise that I'll do my best.
Obviously, this aspect of the website will be an evolving one. As many ideas that I throw out there, I'll need feedback to refine them and be sure that I'm heading in the right direction. I know that one area that I want to go--and that I feel is so far lacking in our community--is a free and open brainstorming forum. My thought on this is to inspire and encourage brainstorming for the sake of of brainstorming, where ideas are free to be shared without fear of embarrassment or theft.
I'll be getting into all of this more at a later time, but for now, answer me this: what aspects of your life--a creative venue or otherwise--do you think would benefit from an open, collaborative brainstorming session?
