Watch OLD SCHOOL NEW SCHOOL, A personal question about how someone can realize his full creative potential leads an independent filmmaker across the United States in search of answers. His journey takes him into the lives and homes of some of today's most accomplished and illuminating artists questioning artistic individuality, risk, and the definition of success.

Revealing conversations with actor Brian Cox, jazz legend McCoy Tyner, and many more working artists of all disciplines are woven together in this compelling exploration of the value and often surprisingly personal process of creativity.

Very inspiring thoughts about creating, sharing your unique self. And thanks for taking the risk to make the film. I found it both entertaining as well as a great exercise in re-imagining success. Well done!

I started to watch your documentary and I think it´s humble to say it talks about realizing creative potencial. I believe it talks about something much deeper and important that is "how we live in this world and how we develop our profession (in this case filmaking but it applies to any category)". It has a philosophical approach and I must say is one of the very few things I enjoyed watching, from different productions I´ve been invited to in these last few days.

Nothing too earth-shattering. A few mediocre artists and a few good ones. Awkward narration. Some useful tidbits.

I went to a little circus recently. While they were setting up some balancing obstacles my girlfriend said "cats! it's going to be an act with cats!" She was very excited. "They don't have cats in the circus" I told her (and of course they didn't in this circus) but now I'm happy to see that I am wrong! Great film!!!
