I came across this trailer for the indie documentary called 1000 Journals. I was very intrigued. The concept was that Someguy, a San Francisco artist, sent out 1000 journals in the summer of 2000 to people with no stipulations or rules. In 2003 one journal made it back. What happened to the other 999? That is what the movie is about. It is about our creativity or lack thereof. I often struggle with how creative I am. I feel that I need to have this amazing artistic flair or I can't consider myself valid as a creative person. Sometimes creativity just flows, its how you cook a meal or how you write out a list. People are afraid to be creative, including me at times. We are afraid to be judged and how people will perceive what we create. I like the films concept and I can't wait to see it.
