Stuck on a creative project? Struggling to come up with the right phrase or a “this works!” layout?

Try this.

Turn on the TV. Find a movie. Now turn off the volume.

Shaking your head and saying “huh?” Maybe. But give it a few minutes.

Without audio, you’re forced to supply the sound yourself….or at least imagine what the sound might be.

You’ll find yourself creating dialogue, thinking about what music is playing…..even adding sound effects. You’re stretching…..and coming up with the creative elements missing in a silent film (or video since this also works on your computer or mobile device).

So next time you’re stuck, turn off the sound. It works.
