Thank you David Lynch. What an extraordinary gift your Masterclass was for me. Brilliant and inspiring.

I have learned that fishing for ideas has been in my work flow but never had a name for it. I enjoyed David's explanation on creativity and how to stay true to the ideas! Well Done Masterclass by David Lynch. I highly recommended this to anyone in the arts!
I think this class has made me more sensitive to the art of film-making. We often think in terms of arcs, and story structure, screen direction...all the facets of telling a story. But, Mr. Lynch seems to focus more on the ambiguous negative space and the infinite possibilities that lie in that if we are conscious of it and incorporate lucid ideas into our work.
