“Working with Structure Leads to Creative Freedom”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
On another free-for-all Not So Serious Sunday, we go from Seinfeld to creating empathy to the value and misconceptions of structure. As well as sandwiches… and how sandwiches pertain to creativity. Not the most poetic metaphor but it works! Have a listen!
POINT #1: “TAKE INSPIRATION, DON’T TAKE THE IDEA”
-Learn what you like from the works you enjoy most, but don’t try to recreate it. Make the next great thing!
POINT #2: “EMPATHY & COMPASSION”
-If you don’t illicit these feelings from your audience, no one will really care or will connect with your work. That doesn’t mean that you can’t take on dark themes or ideas — it will, in fact, take it to a deeper level.
POINT #3: “MAKE ALLIES WITH STRUCTURE”
-Don’t think you’re above certain structures within your creative medium. Structure permeates every natural part of our existence as well as in our creations. The word may imply containment or even imprisonment but it will actually free you to create the next great thing.
