David Lynch Teaches Creativity and Film: A New Online Course
How many of us became David Lynch fans while first watching one of his films? And how many of those fans also left filled with the desire to make a film themselves? Though the long-circulating term "Lynchian" puts a name to Lynch's distinctively stimulating and disturbing cinematic style, it increasingly seems that no filmmaker, no matter how skilled, can quite pull off that style but Lynch himself. But even if you can never be the man who directed the likes of Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, and Mulholland Drive (and co-created the similarly inimitable television series Twin Peaks), you can still learn a great deal about filmmaking from him that you can't learn from anyone else.
Now online education company MasterClass has made some of his knowledge easily accessible in the form of their new course "David Lynch Teaches Creativity and Film." In Lynch's world — unlike Hollywood in general — you can't make a film without creativity. But of what does creativity consist? "Ideas are everything," says Lynch in the trailer for his MasterClass above. "We're nothing without an idea. So I go where the ideas lead." He has long liked to make an analogy with fishing: you put a piece of bait on a hook, cast your line out into the world, and wait for an idea to bite. Different idea-fishing methods work for different people, and Lynch has spoken of his success with drinking a milkshake at Bob's Big Boy every day for seven years, and even more so with decade after decade of twice-daily meditation.
