‘Avatar’ & Creative Constraints: My Interview on NPR

The upcoming Hollywood blockbuster “Avatar” cost upwards of $500 million. But that price tag doesn’t guarantee a good movie. Filmmakers don’t need limitless resources to make something great. At least, that’s what Kirk Mastin believes. In fact, Kirk thinks limitations help make movies better. Kirk is a filmmaker and photojournalist who teaches digital storytelling. He writes about creativity and limitations at his Website, Lo–Fi High Style. Kirk told KUOW’s Jeannie Yandel about three movies that show how to view obstacles as an opportunity for more creativity.
