Where do Ideas Come From?

Charts my own creative anxieties as I was trying to put together my film submission for TIFF Instagram X. It's a journey that takes us down a YouTube wormhole of Bresson, Lynch, and Tarkovsky (Nathan: "I find myself searching and watching videos a lot during that kind of state"), to frantic Google searches, to his footage of a girl in a car, trying to block out her anxious thoughts. The perfect visual summation of what it feels like when you're searching for that One Great Idea.

Screened at: Stuttgarter Filmwinter, TIFF x Instagram Shorts Festival.
