The above video is from Chris Staley from his time as Penn State Laureate from 2012 to 2013. Staley did a series of short talks and this one tackles creativity, trying to disabuse his audience of the notion that some people are creative and some simply are not.
Staley is an optimist in this video. It’s his opinion that what holds many people back is fear. He compares creativity to young children being excited to draw a house or a dog, but those same children several years later saying that they cannot. At some point as you grow up you convince yourself you don’t have talent. Staley expands on this idea as he works in the studio.
The video is by Cody Goddard with additional footage shot by Ryan Bergman.
