    [NEW VIDEO ALERT! Here's our latest video essay https://vimeo.com/delvetv/bananas-sardines-sharks] All of history's greatest figures achieved success in almost exactly the same way. But rather than celebrating this part of the creative process we ignore it. This missing chapter in the story of success reveals the secret to doing meaningful work. But in the modern world, full of distraction, do we have what it takes to do great things? The second in a two-part series about creativity. ==== Delve Deeper: Part one of the series: https://vimeo.com/84022735 The series was part inspired by Mastery by Robert Greene http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009U1U2IU/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=B009U1U2IU&linkCode=as2&tag=adammeetsworl-21 You can read more about Leonardo daVinci's difficult years in: "Da Vinci's Ghost: Genius, Obsession and how Leonard Created the World in his Own Image" by Toby Lester http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1439189242/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=1439189242&linkCode=as2&tag=adammeetsworl-21 This series began life as a couple of essays on Medium Difficult https://medium.com/i-m-h-o/a7f8bdabd67b 47 years to success https://medium.com/the-dept-for-dangerous-ideas/8654ee14e4b2 ==== Released under a Creative Commons Licence 3.0 - Remix & share with non-commercial attribution Credits: All paintings and archive in the Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons & Prelinger Archives The Craig Ferguson Show © CBS Music released under a Creative Commons Licence "Lullaby" by _ghost (https://soundcloud.com/ghost-14) "Hungaria" by Latché Swing (http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/latche_swing_(3) "July" by Marcel Pequel (http://www.last.fm/music/Marcel+Pequel) "One" by Marcel Pequel (http://www.last.fm/music/Marcel+Pequel) "Todo se precipita a tu alrededor deprisa" by Ruido Blanco John Coltrane By Gelderen, Hugo van / Anefo [CC-BY-SA-3.0-nl (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/nl/deed.en)], via Wikimedia Commons John Lennon By Roy Kerwood [CC-BY-2.5 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5)], via Wikimedia Commons Sir Alec Guinness By Allan warren → http://www.allanwarren.com [CC-BY-SA-3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0) or GFDL (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html)], via Wikimedia Commons Tim Berners Lee By John S. and James L.

              CHILDREN OF ENLIGHTENMENT is a revolutionary documentary that aims to become the chronicle of a generation - namely, young Japanese people, who are in the process of leading their country into a creative Renaissance. Rejecting - and rejected by - the secure corporate jobs of the past, Japan's youth are asserting their individuality by diving into creative pursuits like art, fashion, and music. CHILDREN OF ENLIGHTENMENT guides its audience into this creative scene, following the youth to the places where they work, play, live, and create. The film explores the new lifestyles and new philosophies with which these young people experiment. Through interviews with older, established artists, CHILDREN OF ENLIGHTENMENT reveals the history of this remarkable movement, and how the Japanese scene has changed over the years. It also explores the issues and difficulties facing the youth movement, and the challenge that the movement poses to society. Shot on the Canon 5D Mark II.

                      The last video of the 'Craycroft Set', Gina dances to 'The Sisters, by Renaissance. It is set in a newly built, vacant Model Home. In the middle of this shoot, the doorbell rang. I knew I had locked the door, so I just signaled Gina to continue, which she did without breaking stride. I went to the door and asked. "yes?". I heard the plea from the other side, "please, we'd like to see the house?". "I'm sorry", I answered, "You will have to contact a realtor, I am not allowed to let anyone in" I told them truthfully, "We are shooting a commercial. Please call the number on the sign and make an appointment." I waited till I heard the pickup truck leave, and returned to the living room, where Gina was very much involved with the music, and had not missed a beat. "You should have let them in", Gina spoke over the music, still not missing a move. "I could have had an audience beside my cameraman!" She winked, and went back to what she was doing. It is a long piece, and she had plenty of time left for this last number of the set and I could see she was getting tired, as her movements were beginning to be strained. Still, she was doing quite well considering this was her debut videotaping, and had not been filmed in motion, since the Super 8 shooting of "Tales", back in '72.

I have enabled my videos for public viewing but I have disabled the 'collections' and downloads, as I have found them on sites I do not care for , not for my work. These videos are not 'porn' nor intended to be viewed as such. If you have an 'art' site, and wish to add any of my stuff to your collections, message me first and I will check out your site and open the work for collection if I find it appropriate. Thank you
