Happiness

Happiness (below) is a short film made by Steve Cutts. It’s a masterpiece.

We live in a society where the focus on well being and mindfulness is in the ascendant. It’s the natural corollary to lives lived in the shadow of an exploitative system – where what we buy is, we are told, what defines us. Th film looks at the myths we are sold – about the true path to happiness being just ‘x’ or ‘y’ and hang the consequences. It asks questions.

Perhaps the true path to happiness doesn’t lie in unrestrained consumption, but rather in developing yourself and your own resilience?

Happiness, by Steve Cutts

There is feedback and then …

Some feedback lives with you forever, usually because it betrays zero understanding of the creative process.   Well this marvellous bunch of creatives from Ireland have come up trumps with a series of A3 posters (in aid of charity) – they’ve been creative with appalling feedback.   If you’ve ever been one of these clients, look away now.

On St Patrick’s day I salute these Irish creatives for their wit and chutzpah.   Sláinte agus táinte!
