    Creative block, we all get it. We hit walls, slip into ruts and take refuge in comfortable old habits. However, creative leaders break through stale ideas to tease out fresh and fabulous ones. And they make it look effortless.

    Wanna know how they do it? So do we.

    Join moderator Jerry Ketel, Creative Entrepreneur & Champion of Innovation, and a panel of Portland's creative community superstars as they get to the meat of how they make magic happen, even when they're running on nothing but four espressos and a dinner of stale Pop Tarts from the vending machine.

    Learn real world solutions to your real world creative problems:

    • Where do you find inspiration on demand to meet a hard deadline?
    • What do you think makes for an effective brainstorm process?
    • Who plays your "devil's advocate" and how do you know it's time to bring her/him into the process?
    • How do you choose which creative software to use for a project?
    • When you don't know where to start, where do you start?

    PRSA/SEMpdx Present “Connected” Film Screening

    Have you ever faked a restroom trip to check your email? Slept with your laptop? Or become so overwhelmed that you just unplugged from it all? In this funny, eye-opening, and inspiring film, Director Tiffany Shlain takes audiences on an exhilarating rollercoaster ride to discover what it means to be connected in the 21st century. From founding The Webby Awards to being a passionate advocate for The National Day of Unplugging, Shlain’s love/hate relationship with technology serves as the springboard for a thrilling exploration of modern life…and our interconnected future. Equal parts documentary and memoir, the film unfolds during a year in which technology and science literally become a matter of life and death for the director. As Shlain’s father battles brain cancer and she confronts a high-risk pregnancy, her very understanding of connection is challenged. Using a brilliant mix of animation, archival footage, and home movies, Shlain reveals the surprising ties that link us not only to the people we love but also to the world at large. A personal film with universal relevance, Connected explores how, after centuries of declaring our independence, it may be time for us to declare our interdependence instead.
