“Grant me serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

With all the craziness that is currently going on in our world, many of us are dealing with huge and overpowering problems that are way beyond our control. As a consequence, anxiety, doubts and fears inevitably swirl around in our minds and it can all feel a little bit overwhelming.

That’s why it is important to accept that there are some things that are outside of our influence and simply focus on the things that we can control.

It is with this in mind that the Tinderflint team came up with a plan to use the current situation as an opportunity to flex our creative muscles.

We decided to create our own brief for the Tinderflint family.

The creative execution, style, format – all up for grabs. Whatever they wanted to create, it had to be personal to them, their experience, their understanding, their message, safe in the knowledge that the rest of the Tinderflint family were there to support them with it – Our directors, photographers, animators, art directors, producers, editors whoever wanted to take on the challenge.  There was nothing to tie their hands………….aside from the limitations of a global pandemic.

It’s not a competition, but an opportunity to keep making and thinking creatively. We understood that people may not have access to high spec equipment, but that in itself is a creative challenge that many greeted enthusiastically.

We wanted to afford our amazing friends and colleagues the chance for a little creative self-indulgence and so we did.

From this The Isolation Shorts was born.

We will be sharing Isolation Shorts, showcasing the talent and creativity of one of the Tinderflint Family. Thanks to everyone who has taken part so far and we look forward to sharing more brilliant work over the coming weeks.

Take care, stay safe and together we’ll get through this.

Love from Tinderflint
