Be Innovative in What You Create

    I love how different groups in the film community come together to celebrate being creative. Especially when it’s to celebrate science fiction and fantasy creations.

    In this video from Tested, Frank Ippolito interviews Simon Lee at Monsterpalooza. Not only is the work amazing, but it was inspired by one of my favourite shows, Stranger Things, so I knew I had to share this with the world.

    Simon’s work is incredible, but what he had to say was a great reminder to me as a creative and I think you’ll be encouraged too. At one point Lee talks about how he had to flip the work upside-down. It was a great little reminder to never have a fixed view on what you create.

    In other words, it was a reminder to hold my stories in an open hand, because then it has the potential to grow into something more. Originally, Lee was only creating the Demogorgon, but as he worked, a whole network of intricate images popped into his head. The final product is pretty incredible too.

    Check out the vid and let it be a source of inspiration to your own art.
