Looking for short videos that are intrinsically about creativity
November 9, 2014 11:44 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking to compile a collection of short, entertaining, inspiring, high-energy videos about creativity, the creative process, and innovation by their very nature. Classic showing, not telling.

Eepybird's Post-It experiment is a perfect example. It's under 8 minutes, highly entertaining, but reflects the iterative, collaborative, and incremental nature of creating something brand new. The videos would be played for large groups in a workplace setting at the start of ideation and/or problem-solving sessions, so should be mostly SFW, but it's OK if they get a little weird or include a little mild profanity.

I come back to this thing, from Ira Glass, a lot.

The Pachobel Rant is the first thing I thought of. Audio, rather than visua, though.
The Motherhood Rap is another one.
I'm sure I found these via MeFi but I'm not sure who posted them.
