John Ibbitson

Star

John Ibbitson was born in Toronto and has received numerous awards for his talents in the dramatic arts and extended media, specifically for film and video production.
Despite being dyslexic, John built a successful academic career at York University in Toronto, where he graduated in 2005 with a BFA.

John is an emerging filmmaker with a bulk of accomplishments under his belt. He has written, directed and solely produced four shorts: The View From Here (2010), Behind Closed Doors (2005), For My Father (2004), and Lost and Found (2002). His films have screened at several festivals throughout Canada and the US. After working with and observing professional crews, John is finally ready to develop his own voice as a emerging Canadian writer and director.

What is unique that's not in your bio?
I share the same name with a famous Canadian journalist. I guess if we have the same name it's not that unique.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
I'm really proud of the success that my latest film, The View From Here, has achieved. Last year, it won the Programmers' Excellence in Storytelling Award at the Birmingham Shout Film Festival of Alabama.
How do you define cool?
I would define it as a feeling of appreciation or desire for something that makes you happy. For me, those things are: friends, film, fashion, my job, and gummy candy,
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Spending way too much time on the internet conducting searches for things that I would like to exist, and being delighted to find out that they already do.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
I love reading about fashion trends and being ahead of the curve on discovering my own. I also like that the site gives me the opportunity to be a trendsetter.
What is your favorite trend?
Right now, my favorite trend is definitely androgynous and punk-inspired fashion pieces.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
The topic itself has to pique interest, so it helps if you have an eye for what's up and coming, but a punchy title, buzz words, and some good pictures also garner a lot of attention.
How do you reset to be creative?
I've never thought of it as resetting. I think I am innately a creative person who usually has several ideas on the go. I don't really think you can force creativity, it's something that comes naturally. That being said, being a keen observer of the people and environment around you may help inspire your imagination. I find my best ideas come to me at the most inconvenient times, like when I'm walking home from work. My advice: always keep a notepad on hand, then you can quickly jot down your thoughts when creativity strikes.
What inspires or excites you?
Change! (Especially of the social kind.)
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Awesomeness would be a world with less hate, discrimination, and poverty. It's up to the current generation to make this a trend for future ones to follow and improve upon.
