Constraints Will Set You Free

Prompt 1: Make anything you want, of any scale, with an unlimited budget and no time limit.

Prompt 2: Make a 2 minute long video, free of dialog, that conveys the complexity of love. It’s due in 3 weeks.

Sometimes we know exactly what we want to make. The idea is bursting out of us. It’s like something else is making our art, and we are nearly a medium.

But most of the time constraints will ground us and give us something to push against. They take the impossible off the table. They let us get started.
