Don’t mention the films sub-plot

When the Indian film director Shekhar Kapur went to Hollywood his agent told him not to mention the films sub-plot.

Here is a fascinating TED talk from the film director Shekhar Kapur about creativity and how he went about directing the film Elizabeth.

Illustrated with scenes from his film he talks about the creative process, starting with the preparation, then putting himself into a self imposed panic by tearing up the script on the first day of filming to free his mind and allow inspiration to flow in.
