Writer Director Tina Gordon Chism on the Creative Process

At a time when it’s so easy and convenient to whip out a smart device to jot down an idea or take notes, it’s refreshing to see that the good ol’ notebook hasn’t gone completely out of style.  In this Creative Spark segment, writer and director Tina Gordon Chism (Drumline, ATL, Peeples) talks about her passion for the “slow burn” of fleshing out the details of her stories and characters in longhand. Sneak a peak of Chism on a reconnaissance mission for her forthcoming HBO comedy Crushed, about an African-American family turned winemakers in Napa. Also find out why a simple hoodie is key to her creative process.
