Filmed from 2014-2015, CreativeNC is a documentary that sheds light on what it’s like to be a creative in a country fueled by industrial ideals. What is a creative? Does society and our educational system stifle creativity? What’s it like to build a career and find success as a creative in an area that lacks industry? Producer and Director Dev T. Smith answers those questions through the lense of North Carolina through interviews with the state’s standout creatives at various points in their careers. In partnership with the Smithsonian-affiliated NC Museum of History, Dev T. Smith spearheaded an event to debut the film along with panel discussions and about creative/entrepreneurial development. The event concluded with a keynote speech from Karmaloop founder, Greg Selkoe
