The Great Abyss: Artist Shares the Sole Reason Why He Creates

This is a must-watch video. Composer, filmmaker, and artist Salomon Ligthelm opens his heart and soul in this beautiful short film called The Great Abyss. In it, he shares the sole reason why he creates. For anyone in a creative field or for those looking from the outside in, this film gives you an honest look at how an artist thinks and feels.

“His most authentic work comes from a place of surrender and service to others. Reject the voice inside that says ‘you are what you do' and give in to The Great Abyss. Find why you create.”
