I once attending film school – or video and TV production school to be precise. I met many people just like me – searching for a creative breakthrough. I was trying to determine how easy access video production and editing tools (aka Apple products) could kick start a career change.
Zapher Iqbal was probably trying to do something similar, but he had a way with him that was both intoxicating and bewildering at the same time. All you need to know about him is contained on his business card:
Around the same time, I was whispering I Am An Artist, You Are An Artist, We Are All Of Us Artists, so maybe I was similarly unadulterated, but I doubt it.
Why do I unsquirrel this here, now? I don’t know. I searched for Zapher online, hopeful that he had made it to IMDB versus being a director of a transport company in the Midlands.
I wish there were more Zaphers in the world. Here’s to the linguistic semiotician in us all.
