Media Education


Inspiration is Just Around the Corner

In the world of filmmaking (and all creative endeavors), inspiration and new ideas present themselves to us in many different ways. A plastic bag blowing down the street, a story from your grandpa, a cactus growing perilously from a cliff.

Yet other times, we have to dig deep in ourselves and work hard to come up with a new great idea. Why is this phenomenon so different for each person? This short video from filmmaker Andrew Norton explores these questions and features the voices of David Lynch, Robert Krulwich, Chuck Close, Lulu Miller, and others.
