Creativity

Thoughts on Creativity:

Much of my work explores the topic of creativity and how it has shaped my filmmaking process. Exploring the interconnectivity of one’s ideas, and even fleshing out what ideas are, is vital to creativity, and I broke down the creative process into 10 “Acts” (see below for the short film).

Creativity is leaping on hunches and stepping away to gain a new perspective, taking notes and sharing them, inviting other viewpoints and people, and so much more. Creative constraints can even end up stimulating productivity, and the second film (also below), explores those obstacles and how to overcome them, stimulating ingenuity and making one’s project that much better. Creativity has been fueling human innovation since the dawn of time, and honing in on our creative thinking skills is honing in on humanity: evolving society towards the future and a more connected human experience.
