Furthermore, it looks at how culture and technology continue to affect creativity. The film shows James Franco paint the actors he’s working with — a way in which he builds on creativity from a single project — Joan Smalls speak on the supportive network her family has provided, while Hann Zimmer talks about how money has never been the motivation behind his music, “because money is not inspiring.
