Recently I’ve visited NYC and sat with the great folks of pond5 for a conversation about inspiration and challenges in the world of content creation.
Among other things I was asked where do I draw inspiration from?
Here’s part of my answer:
The first place I draw inspiration from is the TV. It’s amazing to see how much talent and creativity has emerged in Israel. The high standard of the ads and promos are just exceptional, and I enjoy analysing them. Sometimes, in order to really take in and get inspired I mute the TV leaving me only with the visuals.
I also think that music for me is the most influential when it comes to getting inspired. I have iTunes up and running 24/7 on all my gear, and my recent playlist includes Metric, Athlete, Jake Bugg, Madness, Broods, Mojave 3 and Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
Last but not least my first drawing teacher, Moshe Melamed, who had an immense input on molding my conceptual visual world. He died at an early age, and I find myself thinking of him often. Greatly missed!
