My Daily Routine2011

  • 3.5
It is all in the title. MY DAILY ROUTINE is a playful visual diary of filmmaker David Lowery's days, from waking in the morning to turning in at night, when his racing mind refuses to let him sleep without working over a new creative project or reading until the wee hours. It is also about the frustrations of creative work and the lure of distraction as a self-employed filmmaker and editor-for-hire in a plugged-in world. Narrated by the filmmaker and illustrated in hand-drawn sketches, it plays out like a mock slide-show (complete with the projector hum and click of changing images) by way of a tutorial. "I made MY DAILY ROUTINE at a point where I was just really frustrated with where I was and I wasn't even making things," explains Lowery. "There was a lot of red tape I was trying to cut through with other projects, but I really wanted to make something. This film is what I wound up making." - Sean Axmaker

I love learning how artists work, the daily routine, to see if it reflects anything that I do. Even if I've only watched a few David Lowery films, I am still interested in this aspect of his creative routine. A nice synopsis,

smug and boring.

I noticed that he was sure to identify, rather loudly, his Mac laptop.

I believe this is some sort of communication to other hipsters. Also, he's training for a marathon! Who the F cares?

Cute. This short makes you feel connected to the person. He is giving you his personal moments, piece by piece.
