Hitchcock on Creativity

"Nothing has changed since Red Riding Hood," says the master of horror. Interesting. So if people are frightened of the same thing they were as children, does that mean they'll respond to the same charm they did as kids too?

The first two or three minutes of this are genius, and pertain directly to the creative process Kiran and I try to teach but, alas, cannot. In particular, the conversation about cliches right around the 2-minute mark.
