We ran into some technical issues with the video, so this episode is audio only!
It’s time once again for a discussion on what we’re reading/watching/playing to help charge our creative batteries. Also: Jerzy and Rob check in with one another to see what big ideas they’re engaging with in their work.
And old saw we haven’t used on the Lean Into Art Cast in some time is “limitations breed creativity.” What we typically mean by this is that limiting one’s choices in a creative endeavor removes ambiguity and often provides a starting point. It can also present interesting creative problems to solve.
But what about the tools or platform you choose? Don’t they introduce constraints as well? Can these constraints enhance the work, or are they a roadblock we have to work around? When do we abandon the tool or platform altogether?
Join us for a discussion on the unforeseen influence in the tools you use.
The Lean Into Art Cast hits a milestone! This time Jerzy and Rob use the opportunity to explore the many pieces, players, and values that go into making a big thing and how each of those pieces evolve over time.
Do you have a creative kit that you never leave home without? If so, what kinds of tools go in that container? How does examining the stuff you plan on making, transportation, location, and ergonomics figure in? What kind of bag/backpack/sling do you choose, and how do you organize the tools within?
Join Jerzy and Rob for an exploration of assembling your creative travel kit.
Rob and Jerzy are back from seeing some superhero movies and have story structure on the mind. Join us for a discussion on some resources we’ve been reading concerning story structure and the hero’s journey, followed by an improvisational exercise where we’ll try to hang up a story outline on that structure live.
