Meet Megan Reneau an artist in Calgary, AB.
As an artist, I think I always knew that the film industry was something I felt passionate about. Where things really changed is when I met the passionate people in the industry who love what they do, outside of their pay check, or status. The ones that help you grow, give you a chance and don’t safe guard their resources. The reason I say this is because it is a hard truth. I am more of a” build each other up so we all succeed and get better” kind of person. Plus I am wise enough to know that it is more about you fitting the role and what you have to offer to it, versus just your skills set. They all go hand in hand. Every artist makes their art differently with the same resources. Why make things more difficult? We are all trying to create pieces of art. When you have a team work together, the works speaks for itself. That essence is what keeps my soul in this industry.
It is a never ending progression and in my opinion one of the most rewarding adventure you can go on. Because in the end, it is not about the size of the job you get. It’s about doing what you love with gratitude. When I am old and sore from injuries, I will still be smiling because I chose to live.
