Editorial Reviews

Includes the first two episodes of the series.

How do they happen - art, ideas, inventions, solutions, music, poetry? The Creative Sprit, a four part series, is an inspiring and entertaining look at creativity. Each episode blends animation, cartoons, humorous sketches, original music and vivid on-location shooting to capture this emerging spirit of innovation and creativity. Through observation of creative people and places, we discover that creative solutions to problems begin with basic human qualities: passion, persistence, vision, caring and trust in oneself and others. Creativity is not the exclusive domain of genius ... it belongs to all of us.

With: Marlee Matlin, Patty Duke, Bernadette Peters, James Earl Jones, Ally Sheedy, Wile E. Coyote, Jane Curtin and more.

Episode One: Inside Creativity
The first episode takes us inside the creative mind to explore what creativity really is and what causes it. Original animation helps us discover the secrets of intuition. Jazz great Benny Golson composes the score for the series and discusses the nature and power of creative collaboration. Animator Chuck Jones (creator of Bugs Bunny and the Roadrunner cartoons), a master calligrapher in Kyoto, a professor at Stanford's Business School, a designer and a pediatric neurosurgeon all demonstrated and share their creative "secrets."

Episode Two: Creative Beginnings
This episode looks at how adult creativity is formed by our childhood experiences. It poses the questions, "Are we crushing or liberating the creativity of our children?" New teaching techniques which encourage creativity are examined. Creativity in the home is explored and suggestions for avoiding "Creativity Killers" are depicted through humorous animation.
