The creative process is messy and elusive, right? It doesn't have to be. This book will take you from wild inspiration to polished masterpiece using a three-part proven-effective formula that's helped hundreds of artists from Grammy nominated musicians to world class choreographers.
Do you feel frustrated or hopeless because you know there's great work inside of you, but you can't seem to get it out of your head and onto the stage?
How would it feel to have a creative formula that served as a barometer to know when you're working for or against yourself in the studio? How would it feel to know that you exist in a category that's all your own and are free from competing with other performers?
This powerful and easily accessible book will hold your hand through the dark tunnel of your creative path and show you the way out. Holly Shaw, who has mentored hundreds of artists, from composers, to choreographers and directors, shares the fruits of her creative research and examples from her 30 plus years in film, television, and theatre to help you streamline your process and clarify your work so it pops with "you-ness"!
Most of the books out there are Band-Aid solutions and assign you random exercises, or they're so dense and philosophical that they sap your energy and desire to actually do the work! The Creative Formula not only clearly illustrates a simple, empowering method, but it also guides you step-by-step through the entire creative process from start to finish.
