J.J. Abrams is currently one of my favorite directors/creative types in the industry, after watching Cloverfield last night I watched a video that I had seen posted on a site that I had no knowledge about called TED, it looks to be an amazing organization. Their mission is to spread ideas, not a bad mission to have.
"We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world."
J.J. gave a talk on what he called the "Mystery Box". Well worth a watch and you can also download by clicking here HD version. It's a great creative recharge, you can tell that J.J. is trying to cram alot into a short amount of time but he shares some great stuff...and wouldn't you know it...he references Star Wars!
More to come.
