It’s always interesting and useful to hear other people’s perspectives on inspiration – even more so when it’s from some of the world’s leading creative artists, writers, directors and visionaries.
So when we came across the short film ‘Inspiring Creativity’ we were spellbound. Presented by the coffee company illy, the short film was created by Liberatum, and directed by Pablo Ganguli and Tomas Auksas.
It features 20 artists and cultural figures from art, fashion, film, design, technology and music. It offers an insider’s perspective on inspiration. It asks what inspires creative thinking and behaviours for nurturing inspiration, while provoking thoughts on how culture, society, and technology continue to affect creativity.
The film features Diana Picasso, Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer, Inez van Lamsweerde, Vinoodh Matadin, Academy Award nominee James Franco, Joan Smalls, Johan Lindeberg, Jonas Mekas, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Nico Muhly, Karen Elson, Karim Rashid, Klaus Biesenbach, Academy Award nominee Lee Daniels, Lola Montes Schnabel, Marilyn Minter, Mark Romanek, Tracey Emin, Moby, Paul Schrader, and TED founder Richard Saul Wurman.
