Creating the Impossible

988669_10152882434160652_1893030052_nWelcome to another Tuesday with TED. This week we are watching filmmaker Martin Villeneuve talk about Mars et Avril, the Canadian sci-fi spectacular he made with virtually no money. In this charming talk, he explains the various ways he overcame numerous financial and logistical constraints to produce his unique and inventive vision of the future.

I haven’t watched this film yet, but after seeing this talk, I definitely want to!

How do you feel after watching this? I know it seems counterintuitive, but constraints really do seem to enhance creativity. At least that has been my experience. Has it been yours? Could you use constraints to enhance (rather than limit) your creativity?

Until next time,
Cynthia Patton
