MovieTravelPoster:Discipline of Creative Practice

I keep trying to think about what makes a “story”… One of my favorite all time movies is Cinema Paradiso and I’ve been thinking about this for 2 days.. and my own process…I found a good YouTUbe video that had many of the fav clips in it…and the ones that kept standing out for me were the images of Toto as a boy…so amazing…and I Thought – well, how can I make a travel poster out of this… of course, Italy would be fabulous… but there has to be something more… and this thought made me hit on something I’ve been thinking about lately – as a teacher, trying to get students to go deeper… not that my poster is deep – lol – but the project sent me on a path of thinking about this in a different way… and I think herein lies the beauty/power of these activities – they stand us on our heads – take us out of our comfort zones – either thru the creativity part or the tech part – or both… but then is the opportunity – if we come along for the ride…some new thought that we hadn’t had before…I am profoundly grateful to have had the chanceĀ  to play my way into this new discovery…

Here’s the poster – while not significant – either as a visual work – or for its message – but for what it represents to me, the ability as Jim said in a comment to another participant – to take part – to create…the discipline of the creative act…to have had an idea come to you – amazing in and of itself
