Another great video to show your students…

Flagged up (for me at least) by the excellent @Brainpicker on Twitter (see Maria Popova’s blog too).

From an address to the graduate class of 2012 from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.

An inspirational and self-aware speech by Novelist, Comics writer, Screenwriter for Film and TV including (now) screenwriting work for Doctor Who.

…and as re-posted on Twitter this morning: A version with subtitles via the excellent Universal Subtitle organisation.

Tweet – “@neilhimself‘s great @uarts commencement speech on life as a #creative (with #subtitles) http://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/videos/IOH3jJ6INIof/info/ #MakeGoodArt @wildflowerfaery
