Go behind the scenes to learn from Sundance Advisors in our Conversations from the Labs series. This collection of videos will deepen your understanding of all the creative disciplines that are supported through our Labs including Feature Film Directing and Writing, TV Writing, Emerging Media, Documentary, Producing, Film Music, and Theater.
In this video from our New Frontier Lab, four leading digital and new media artists discuss their creative practices and share their advice for effective co-creation across disciplines. With Ruthie Doyle, Director of Emerging Media, as moderator, Melissa Painter, Sarah Ellis, Kat Cizek, and Nick Fortugno discuss their approach to collaboration, prototyping, iteration, and team building. They stress the importance of establishing fluency early in the co-creation process, and the need to check language constantly. They reflect on the importance of active listening and flexibility and encourage creators to reach across fields and backgrounds to assemble their own "Star Wars bar" when building teams.
Other conversations in the series include those with editor Dylan Tichenor, actor/director Ed Harris, writer/director Karyn Kusama, writer/director/producer Kasi Lemmons, cinematographer Stephen Goldblatt, and more.
