Creativity: A new film from Betsy Chasse and Bluedot Productions!
Most often when we think of the creative process, we find ourselves uttering words like play, fun, or imagination – because we like to believe that creativity is all about joy and happiness, but is it?
How does one reach that ecstatic moment in which a new thought is realized- where a new idea is formed? What do we know of how to bring forth from the seemingly nothingness of potentia a life changing or even world changing idea?
Is conflict necessary to have a new thought? Is the creative process filled with moonbeams and sparkle dust or is it the sweat and tears of angst that leads us to the birth of a new idea?
CREATIVITY (The Movie), is a quirky, dramatic and often comical exploration into the creative process. An inspired engagement into the true creative moment – igniting meaning of the journey through the dark night of the soul to the incandescent moment of epiphany.
Join three of our modern worlds most prolific and innovative creatives and Musicians, Brian McWhorter, Mark Applebaum and Mark Gould as they leave the comfort of their respective disciplines, which have guided them to world fame and success and venture into the unknown. They shed their past traditions and previous solutions in order to push them selves farther than they have gone before. Their process, their stories of suffering, laughter, success and failures guide us to our own understanding of how we too can find the creative spark within.
Navigating the exploration is – Amit Goswami (Theoretical physicist) Michael Meade (Storyteller and Mythologist) and Elliot Rasenick (Producer and Artistic Events Creator) bringing their insights and experience revealing the mystical, mythological and scientific processes behind how we coerce the discovery of the new from the depths of the unknown. Together they engage more fully and intelligently into the process that brings about the spark of creativity and its meaning in our own lives.
