Is Creativity A Skill?
some points to think about are
Can we develop it?
Although some people may be more skilled then others, Do we all have the potential to improve it?
How can we learn how to be creative.
Does knowledge of culture/art, help us be more creative?
I Think a knowledge of culture and art can help us be more creative, because the more you can have to draw inspiration from. you can take different aspects from your sources and put them together to create something new. They may also inspire people to create something based around their products.
Does a knowledge of creative "tools" help us be more creative?
A knowledge of creative tool does help us be more creative because they allow us to create ideas that are not available, for example green screen someone into a computer generated background, or creating explosions look bigger and adding in sound if the sound you filmed is unusable
Does media technology inhibit creativity? Are we more "free" without media technology?
I think it enables us to do more with less cost and less props/actors/locations. It allows for more freedom because it can permit us to do more and create new things
How creative are media producers?
Media producers are somewhat creative because although they come up with interesting and new ideas, the people who produce the ideas that the producers come up with are more creative because they take the ideas and make them a physical thing, they also tell the media producer what ideas he can and can't use.
