Get Out of That Creative Funk

Every person in any creative endeavor has gotten into that creative funk. The one where you can't seem to think of new ideas, and the old ideas aren't working either, and since when did you feel so rusty in that skill? And in fact, why did you think you could create that in the first place?

Sound familiar?

Each situation is different, but I've found a few strategies that help me fairly consistently to get back up ready to rock! I hope these help spark the ignition in your work and process, or at least give you a ball that you can get rolling and continue creating.

May Gets Off To A Great Start!

Here at UDEN, we continue to find ways to bring Utah's creators of digital entertainment and technology together, whether by sharing knowledge and expertise, networking or advocating for our growing community. Our membership meetings have proven to be really popular and valuable, so we're aiming to hold them quarterly.  The next one?  Funny you should ask, it's happening Wednesday, May 2nd at 6pm, downtown Salt Lake City as part of #HIVEIGNITEWEEK!

Letter from the Chair - March

Happy March!  We hope this note finds you well!  Lots to feel excited about this month: the Lightspark Media Summit starts in SLC today, the 90th Academy Awards is on Sunday and mid-month will be the annual Game Developers Conference as the digital entertainment sector gets into full swing.
