"Creativity isn't magic" / Kirby Ferguson's Everything Is A Remix [film]



Everything is a Remix is a great 4-part series produced by Kirby Ferguson, a New York-based filmmaker, about the nature of creativity. The final installment is due this fall. The beauty to me, by the way, is discovering (and appreciating) the magic of the non-magic.


Part 1: The Song Remains The Same / Remixing is a folk art but the techniques are the same ones used at any level of creation: copy, transform, and combine. You could even say that everything is a remix.


Part 2: Remix Inc. / An exploration of the remix techniques involved in producing films. Part Two of a four-part series.


Part 3: The Elements Of Creativity / Creativity isn't magic. Part three of this four-part series explores how innovations truly happen.
