Proud Stories: Kar Logan (He/Him)
Q: What kind of performance artist are you?
I am an actor, writer, producer and filmmaker.
Q: When did you first know that you wanted to be a full-time artist?
I first knew as a kid I wanted to create; writer, draw, preform, all of that. But it wasn't until 2012 that I moved to NYC and took pursuing my dreams on full-time.
Q: How are you keeping yourself inspired to create during this unprecedented time?
Honestly, there's inspiration all around you if you're really paying attention. Being inside has given me so much time to catch up on shows and movies or writings, and that puts a spark under me to keep creating.
Q: What is the biggest obstacle you’ve had to overcome as an artist and how did you overcome it?
One of my biggest obstacles was actually myself. It's so easy to get lost in what others are doing because you're comparing their journeys to yours, and that would often have me frustrated but mainly confused. I had to basically remind myself of all that I've done and created, why I did it, and where I'm REALLY headed in the grand scheme of things. It helped me put a pep back in my step and focus.
Q: What are you most proud of in your career thus far?
The series I've written and produced making it to major streaming platforms is definitely something I'm proud of. Working really hard and actually seeing your grind be rewarded is one thing, but also having the opportunity to bring people up with you is something I revel in.
Q: Is there anything you are working on now that can be shared and supported?
My latest project that I filmed is superhero comedy/drama about three girls who discover they're dating the same vigilante. It's entitled "Damsels" and is entering the festival circuit now, but you can always keep up with updates on Twitter and Instagram - @damselsws. My goal with the show was to flip a trope on its head and place the "damsels in distress" in the front seat, making them the real heroes.
