- Who are you and what do you do?
Jeremy Simmons. I create stuff: Music, fiction, screenplays, art, bacon sandwiches.
- What are you working on at the moment?
A radioplay for the BBC Radioplay competition 2012.
- Who inspires you?
- Name an artist who has inspired you.
- Name a place that has inspired you.
- Name some "thing" that has inspired you.
- What drives you to do what you do?
I love creating things, expressing ideas, creating and telling stories. More than loving it, I feel more like I have to, or I'll go mad (in the bad way).
- What values do you wish your creativity to express?I wouldn't know how to distill that into any kind of simple answer. Humanity? The melancholy of the human condition?
- What role does community play in what you do?
Not a lot, to be honest. I don't feel that where I live is any more my community than New York or Seoul or the Australian outback. I've never really felt a warm and fuzzy “hometown love.” Although, Cincinnati chili is pretty sublime.
- What is next for what you do?
More. Try and make the next thing better than the last.
