Hi, I'm Simeon Hendrix, and this is Steady Focused. We talk photography, we talk filmmaking, we talk lighting, lenses, cameras, movement, layouts, audio, editing ... we talk about how to identify weak points, overcome struggles, how to succeed and how to live a fulfilled life. The most important rule - work hard, love yourself and have fun!
Honestly guys, Steady Focused is just as much for me to have you all as my accountability partners as I publicly continue to examine areas I can improve on, as much as it is about me teaching and sharing knowledge I've picked up along the way. They say the best way to learn, is to teach.
I am your host, your teacher, your friend, your student. For the past 4.5 years I've had the honor to work (and still work) at Hoegger Communications, a fast paced, award winning creative advertising agency based in Wichita Falls, Texas. I'm fortunate to have worked through the ranks from graphic design, to filmmaking and photography. I also push hard as a solo artist through documentaries, short films and photography shoots. Prior to #TeamHoegger I worked freelance for several years mostly focused on design (t-shirts, logos, posters, etc.), though I was drawn to release several documentaries.
My 20's were all about rock and roll. I toured around the country as the front man for an aggressive, hardcore, metal band called DOWN-STARES. It was music that melted faces but also had people in the front row in tears from the powerfully emotional journey we would embark on during our shows. Passionate heartfelt music. We shared the stage with and stood eye level with many of our heroes. During that time, in addition to writing lyrics and hyping crowds, I was cutting my teeth as a multimedia artist, creating flyers, t-shirts, posters, documentaries and music videos.
I'm very excited about this new adventure, Steady Focused. I've had the idea of launching a new show on my heart for quite some time now. I know we are all learn a lot. It's going to be an amazing journey!
