From Jane Campion, renowned Kiwi screen writer and director:
“Inspiration is always a visitor into a relaxed space inside of you. It comes when you’re not trying.
Creativity is quite insecure and shy of itself, and it needs a lot of love and acceptance around it. If you come up with an idea and you go, “That’s not an idea – that’s hopeless!” – then straight away the little creatures will run off again. So it’s a good idea to be unjudging of anything that arrives, just suspending unbelief, and let things be.”
