From Nothing, Something profiles creative thinkers across a variety of disciplines to find the common techniques, habits and neuroses that lead to breakthrough ideas. This is an inspiring, intimate, often funny look at the creative process — straight from the brains of some of culture’s most unique and accomplished talents. The film draws a line from a-to-b, charting the journey of an idea from “fanciful notion” to “real world actuality.”

Featuring interviews with: Grammy-Nominated Singer-Songwriter Sara Quin of Tegan & Sara, Oscar-Nominated Screenwriter/Novelist Tom Perrotta (Election, Little Children, The Leftovers), Hollywood creature designer Neville Page (Avatar, Star Trek, Prometheus), Top Chefs Mary Sue Milliken & Susan Feniger, Architect Preston Scott Cohen, Pulitzer-Winning Cartoonist Steve Breen, among many others.
