Time and Creativity

I discovered this short film through a post on facebook by June Maffin. This film answers the question asked by Kreativ magazine:

Our clients want us to do more work in less time? How can we make them understand that for new effective ideas we need more time?

They went to the "world's most talented people," a classroom of children, and gave them this drawing to complete—

When they were given 10 seconds, the drawings were like this—

And when they were given 10 minutes they looked like this—



The lesson here is important for all of us who work with children. We need to give them more time. Teachers know it but feel helpless in the face of all the material they are required to present during the course of the day, week, and year. I don't have a solution but hope that you will share this short film. Increased awareness is a start.

O. Thank you. So wonderful. Remind us in this time hurry and multi-tasking, that wonder awaits with time + focus + love.

Beautiful, and thanks for sharing. As an ex-teacher, and now a book-artist, this truly resonated.

Lovely! But what a shame about the images that come up after the film ends - a man with a rifle and a sexualised woman!!

Sorry to hear that Sal. I didn't see it when I viewed it.
