Synopsis

The movie is a sequel to Vaske’s “Why Are We Creative”, but while the first film concentrates on the promoters and sponsors of creativity, this new film unveils the true killers of creativity. It’s an exploration of the toxic circumstances that act as beta blockers to ideas in all the various creative disciplines.  

The movie will follow director Hermann Vaske and his sidekick Michael Madsen on their mission to unmask and identify the idea killers. Together they analyze what screws up creativity in order to identify the villains, from self-censorship to anxiety, from distraction to bureaucracy. The assassins of creativity are many and they are lurking everywhere.  And oddly, our reasons for not being creative are often very creative indeed… 

As Vaske says: “In an age of uncertainty, where only creativity can help to solve the problems of the world, limply encouraging creativity is not enough. Only when we know where the enemy stands will we be able to avoid the beta blockers of creativity.”
