“Seriously Creative in a Commercial World” with Ryan Scott Oliver

In a class designed for anyone who makes art of any kind (and also for the actors who are thinking about it), composer-librettist Ryan Scott Oliver discusses what it means to be creative: from the idea (What are you making?), the cause (Why are you making this? After years and maybe boredom, why are you still making this?), to planning and structuring your process, going about the process itself (Experience. Imagination. Above all, research!), and then what to do with the material once you’ve completed an initial draft (getting feedback, organizing presentations, revising/rewriting) and of course, at last, pitching and selling your projects in our commercial world. RSO will also discuss his own process and his own career with a Q&A throughout. This comprehensive seminar is designed for serious creatives and anyone who is interested in being seriously creative.
