Igor Skikevich

Back in 2016, when we were all still allowed to do exotic things like leave the house and meet our friends, I met up with Igor Skikevich. This amazing man manages to overcome any difficulties. He never gets discouraged!
We saw each other at a conference where festival films were discussed. There was this moment when I was about to present and I just couldn’t stop thinking, how did it happen that despite health problems Igor has so much strength and courage? He alone was stronger than all those present in the hall… His inner strength and energy inspired me… I was able to speak publicly… I am someone who is very introverted. It was really scary, but I did it! I was really proud of myself afterwards.

Why did I remember that today? Why did i decide to tell you? I just hated sharing my mistakes and half-formed ideas, I never wanted to show my working out. I still don’t.
The global situation with coronavirus has changed me a lot. All my ideas are half baked at the minute because most things I had planned are on hold. I’m trying to find a way to work in lockdown that won’t involve me deleting everything I do. I’m sure I’ll figure it out, and I’m glad I have this community to chat with while I try.
