About : We admire people who can keep the show on the road. The show, of course, could be anything: a marriage, a business, a career, even an outlook or philosophical stance which might fly against the prevailing winds. The show, in a creative and specific sense for this book, is the artist in pursuit of the work they are creating or the work they feel they need to make. What motivates and inspires us? What does it take to bring our ideas to the screen? How do WE keep the show on the road?
