Good Morning

A couple of years ago, I happened across Andrew Price’s excellent seminar.  Although Andrew is a graphic artist, the seven points he makes have application for all creatives whether they are screenwriters, playwrights, novelists, filmmakers or whatever. Okay –

WATCH: Andrew Price’s seminar on the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Artists by clicking this link 

For myself, point 2 ‘Volume: not perfection’ has helped me over this last year as I have sought not to get bogged down in seeking perfection in one script at the expense of others I that otherwise could be creating or producing.

Again, the skinny of his 20+ min talk can be found at the bottom but I would really recommend clicking link above and watching it as I think there is something in it for every creative amongst us.

ATTENTION: Those doing the 6 week Write4Production course , I will send out your tasks for the week tomorrow.

(There are still 2 places left and if want to become more productive in getting work made, leave names beneath this post)

TAKEAWAY: The few notes I made while watching the session are here
