I came across this video of JJ Abrams giving a talk at TED and I just had to share it. For those that don’t know JJ Abrams is the genius behind, Alias, Lost, Mission Impossible III and the recently released Cloverfield. Consistent throughout all his work is that there is always an element of mystery. In his talk, he addresses why this element is so pervasive in his work and where that inspiration came from. It’s a great talk.
