Filmtastic Fridays: Inspiring Advice for Landscape Architecture Graduates

Filmtastic Fridays: Inspiring Advice for Landscape Architecture Graduates

Congratulations Class of 2014 Graduates! We wish you all the best in your future endeavors, and while you might be flooded up to your eyes in well-meaning advice already, here’s even more advice in the form of an inspiring (short!) film to help send you on your way. In his most famous quote about creative work, American public radio personality and This American Life host Ira Glass talks about the secret of creative success and that initial “gap” and struggle almost all beginners face. Oh, and here’s one more tip: in case you don’t already listen to the This American Life podcast, give it a try–it’ll probably be one of the most rewarding things you can listen to while you crank out those AutoCAD drawings.
