I don’t think that scheduling is uncreative. I think that structure is required for creativity.

A lot of people forget how important it is to be creative. We get caught up in getting ahead and in day-to-day minutiae. But creativity is a fundamental mode of expression, as is being tenacious and standing by your own convictions and passions, even if it’s not the ‘popular’ choice.

Films are not mathematics – that’s the first thing you need to understand. At least, that’s how I feel. They are not words on paper. Films are made with people, with teams and with individual bundles of creativity coming together to fulfill the vision of an individual who is the director of the film.

One of the changes I’m driving within Nokia is to adopt what we call ‘the challenger mindset.’ Let’s understand that we have to fight, we have to fight our way through the difficulties, we have to listen to consumers, we have to both deliver what they need and also have some creativity and insight and deliver what the don’t yet know they need.

Action set pieces are my absolute favorite thing to write. I’m pretty much always in the mood to do them, but music certainly helps the process. I usually brainstorm out the dynamics and choreography of a fight to music beforehand – it gives me the little sparks of imagination when I get to the gaps in my own creativity.

I think after ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still,’ I really stopped thinking strategically about my career. I just did. At that point, it became crystal clear to me that you can strategise your career all you want, but it’s so difficult to get a movie made, and creativity shouldn’t be subjected to that kind of strategic thinking.

I always believed that my work should be unfinished in the sense that I encourage people to add their creativity to it, either conceptually or physically. Back in the 1960s, I was calling for ‘Unfinished Music,’ number one, and number two, with my artwork – I was taking unfinished work into the gallery. And that’s how I was looking at it.

Certainly, light fiction exists and encompasses mysteries or second-class romance novels, books that are read on the beach, whose only aim is to entertain. These books are not concerned with style or creativity – instead they are successful because they are repetitive and follow a template that readers enjoy.
– Umberto Eco
The biggest thing I’m seeing – and I have to be careful what I say here – is that people are tired of the old guard and the familiar brands. They’re looking for more individuality and creativity, and that’s coming out of this whole new wave of younger brands: Thom Browne, Michael Bastian, Robert Geller, myself.
