Directed by Tim Cawley

United States 2012 79 mins.

Profiling creative thinkers across several disparate disciplines, Cawley forges a portrait of the creative mind and the various ways we come to make something, whether functional, beautiful, or both. Finding similarities among creatives like Maria Bamford (comedy), Preston Scott Cohen (architecture), Jason Rohrer (video games), and Keith Young (choreography), among many others, From Nothing, Something is an intimate, loving, and often humorous view into some of the most inventive minds working today.
