The title ‘THE PRECIPICE’ may not make sense to most but it makes a world of meaning to us here at VMM. The title is inspired by a quote taken from one of my all time favorite films, ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’ (2008) with Keanu Reeves, where Klaatu had the conversation with the Professor about the ability of human beings to change and the professor’s answer was like a light bulb moment for me.
“Professor Barnhardt: Well that’s where we are. You say we’re on the brink of destruction and you’re right. But it’s only on the brink that people find the will to change. Only at the precipice do we evolve. This is our moment”.
VMM has gotten to its precipice and has evolved into a formidable magazine that seeks to inspire the creative mind.
VMM is more than just a magazine. It is a creative book of ideas, of visual empowerment, motivation and inspiration, giving support to emerging talent all over the world and at the same time paying homage to some of the most creative and talented businesses out there that have not been heard of even though they are at the peak of their game. We are a platform that seeks to discover, collaborate, inspire, promote, motivate and much more. We are here to voice our talent, promote talent and inspire talent. We are here to celebrate each other’s creative abilities no matter how small or subtle it might seem. We are about talent and featuring talent. We are passionate about the emerging market and discovering individuals whose creative prowess defies all.
So as we embrace our uniqueness, stand on our objectives and steer forward to the future, we hope that you enjoy this issue as much as we did creating it. Thank you to everyone who is featured in here. Thank you to my team who go the extra mile even when they don’t need to (Eddy this is for you. I love and appreciate your passion, dedication and support in every way).
