Creative Minds explores the profile of those who have the necessity to express themselves through art. This project aims to deliver an insight into an artist life, their struggles in society, their background, the importance of freedom, family and friends support, and the pros and cons of a creative life. It also analyses what defines art and an artist. Creative Minds is a film documentary that contains a lot of in-depth interviews with four artists from three different countries. Creative Minds aims to be an interesting, informative and fun laid-back documentary film, visually attractive, moving fast from one scene to another, with interviews and examples of artists working in their ‘ambience’. It is a low budget, 'art documentary' film. Brett Morgen, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck director, defines well the necessity to create when he describes his perception of Cobain by analysing the artist’s life story: “One thing about Kurt is before he was a musician, and before he was a rock star, he was an artist, and an artist with a capital A. What that means is that he had to create. It wasn't something that he chose to do — it chose him. He had to kind of purge it out of him, and he would work in any medium available to him, whether that was music or audio collage, or painting, or sculpting, or doodling, or journal-writing or sound design.” (NPR, 2015). That is exactly what Creative Minds aims to show to their audience, a mix of passion, creation, struggles and freedom of an artist mind.
