Bringing together three of our worlds most unique artists, a famous quantum physicist/philosopher, and a world renown story teller; I LIVE FOR ART explores this most vital aspect; creativity straight from the trenches from which is arises. Told in an original blend of character driven documentary fused with vital philosophical and mythical context, this film gives its viewers a visceral experience from its existential loathing to ecstatic elation; from personal struggle to social victory. While any person can be creative, it is the courageous, those willing to entertain uncertainty and are willing to struggle against their own innate feelings of inadequacy who accomplish their victory. To think a thought that they had previously never thought before. Join three of our modern worlds most prolific and innovative creatives and Musicians, Brian McWhorter, Mark Applebaum and Mark Gould as they leave the comfort of their respective disciplines, which have guided them to world fame and success and venture into the unknown.
