Topic: David Guerrero presents: “You have to go through a lot of crap to get to good ideas.”
A science fiction writer called Theodore Sturgeon was interviewed by a journalist who said: "isn't 90% of sci-fi crap?" to which Sturgeon replied "well, 90% of everything is crap." This became known as Sturgeon's Law. And it left me thinking that if you look on the bright side, then at least 10% of the ideas you come up with are not-crap. So why don't we, as creative professionals, find ways to increase that percentage. This was the basis of an agency presentation, and until one day a publisher said she would take a punt on it. And so, here it is: The "you have to go through a lot of crap to get to good ideas" book. This session will consist of insights from the research and highlights from the 80-page pocketbook which is getting its exclusive US preview at the LIAson sessions on October 2.
