On Tuesday, Oct. 3, Fort Worth-based Musicbed released its feature-length documentary film “MAKE,” which explores the motivation behind leading a creative life.

The film features award-winning director Reed Morano — known for his work on The Handmaid’s Tale, Meadowland — indie pop duo Sylvan Esso and renowned graphic designer Aaron Draplin.

According to a news release, “MAKE” aims to go more in depth and get more personal about how an artist’s identity than the other, many, documentaries have tackled creativity.

“In the creative industry, the thing that motivates us directly affects what we’re going to create,” said Daniel McCarthy, the film’s executive producer and the founder and CEO of Musicbed in the release. “Instead of asking ‘what’, we as artists need to be asking ‘why’. Our hope is that MAKE will force creatives to question their motives and find a more freeing and healthier vision of what it means to be an artist.”

“I can be a director and a leader, and someone trying to help a brand. I can come out here to my studio and paint a painting that no one sees. For me, it all has value.” – Eliot Rausch, filmmaker

“It’s much more interesting to talk about the grey area of things than it is to talk about what you’ve decided is right.” – Amelia Meath, Sylvan Esso

“My dad told me when I was very young, ‘No one is going to give you the power. You have to take the power.” – Reed Morano, A.S.C.

“If no one ever looked, I’d still be making cool s*** with my buddies. You know what I mean? That’s as honest as I can be. Before anyone was interested, that’s what I was doing. I had a great life.” – Aaron Draplin, graphic designer
