4 Lessons In Creativity From John Cleese

4 Lessons In Creativity From John Cleese | Film Futures | Scoop.it
Zan says:

Who'd have thought that John Cleese would be so successful as an educator and speaker on creativity? Well, actually it's not that much of a stretch of the imagination. As an actor and writer he understands the creative process. As a performer he knows how to engage an audience and take them on a journey, as any good educator should do.

Having just finished another round of education, I'm happy to find elements of what I've learned showing up in disparate places. It confirms that the experience wasn't complete crap. Not that I suspected it was.

Over the years, I've had to learn and relearn a good number of important lessons. A biggie, that creativity is not the sole domain of artists. Well actually, I pretty much figured that one out hanging out with "artists" in film school in the early 1990s. That didn't go over so well, funnily enough. Still, sometimes you need to be reminded that creativity isn't a special gene but rather a state of mind. Creativity is in all of us. We just need to give our minds the temporal and emotional space to let it do its thing.

Another important lesson from my recent studies echoes a point Cleese raises. Defer making a decision as long as you can. I'm talking about creative decisions here. This practice might not serve you so well in other situations. Give your mind (or unconscious, as Cleese terms it) time to mull over the situation and come up with options. Deciding too quickly can leave great ideas on the table or lead you down the wrong path.

The Story of a Transmedia Revolution (Part 2)

The Story of a Transmedia Revolution (Part 2) | Film Futures | Scoop.it

While part one deals mostly with books and discusses iPad Author, it's part two that struck a chord for me. Peter Usagi's lament that storytelling is becoming a lost art is particularly intriguing to me. Over the years, we have become gored on stories created by others (media industries) that we do not regularly practice our own storytelling muscles. Peter believes that tools available today make it possible for everyone to become a storyteller, and a transmedia one, at that. This appeals to my sense that everyone can be a creator but I wonder how many will make the time and effort to do so.

 

For my creator friends, I ask "how will you invite your audiences to tell stories with you and for each other?"

So, we can take what we have – knowledge, tools, experience, creativity, communities – and transform it into an optimized version of a ‘matrix’ for processes and methodologies in order to create new forms of transmedia storytelling.
