Sadly, designer and director Hillman Curtis passed away on 18 April. While I wasn’t overly familiar with his name, I knew his work. In fact, he directed one of my favourite films of 2010, David Byrne’s Ride, Rise, Roar. If you haven’t seen it, I urge you to as Curtis successfully captured the meeting of many creative minds in this highly engaging music/dance documentary.
In the video below, Curtis talks about his work process and creative beliefs, citing limitations and constant reinvention as being central to his creativity.
