Meet the finalists: Bevan Cullinan

Please sum up your music video concept with a single line, and a single picture.

Life is about how many hits you can take and still keep moving forward, and failure is a required experience that must be accepted as part of an authentically fearless process.

Can you tell us where the inspiration for your idea came from?

I attach images to experiences that I collect over months. Slowly they start connecting with each other and form a visual narrative. It is the same with any art form like writing, music, theatre, art and filmmaking.

What drew you towards Chambers as a collaborator?

I’ve always enjoyed Jacques’s music when he was with Shadowclub. When he started this solo project, the tone of his music had a sophistication that spoke to me. I started seeing the images attach themselves to the music

Jameson’s family motto is ’Sine Metu’ and it means ‘Without Fear’. How would you define “fearless authenticity” as an artist?

To be authentic is to create from source. Being fearless is to allow yourself not to question the process. Creating something can’t happen without the thumbprints and heart murmurs of whoever is creating it. You have to let yourself pour into something which other people can see and experience, fearlessly. There is no space for doubt. Fear creates doubt.
