About this series ....
So much of our culture seems intent on trying to divide us, and people (especially young people) are becoming more isolated and discouraged as a result. As a film maker I see this as an opportunity to explore our similarities, which for me centers on consciousness (our internal processing of experience), creativity, and the struggle to find our true path in life.
I'm reaching out to experienced self made artists who have an interest in sharing the stories of their "inner voyage" and the challenges of living a creative life. As patterns emerge among a variety of artists and performers, it's my hope that viewers might gain some sense of comfort and connection from these conversations.
About Paul Gilbert:
From platinum album sales and number one chart success as a founding member of MR. BIG, to frightening the guitar community with new levels of ferocious picking technique with shred-pioneers RACER X, to exploring punk, pop, classical, blues, jazz, and progressive instrumental styles in his solo career, Paul Gilbert has recorded a massive amount of stunning guitar music, all while circling the globe to play sold-out arenas from Japan to Jakarta.
Filmed and Produced by Sam Forencich
