Another mockumentary episode from Jen Brister and Amelia Gildea
('Dee'), this time featuring the art of brainstorming.
Brainstorming with a group is a tricky business at the best of
times, requiring a superhuman combination of cleverness and
humility, genius and self-deprecation. You need to be able to come
up with brilliant, creative ideas out of (quite literally) nowhere
and then, mere moments later, still flushed with excitement and
pride and inspiration, calmly accept that yes, your idea was (as
they say) utter pants. There really is an art to executing this
kind of u-turn with aplomb.
Thankfully, in this little video promoting Jen's show in
Edinburgh next month, these two show us just how a fruitful
brainstorming session should be done. No ideas are too rubbish, and
no ideas are good.
