Spy Kids Kaizen - your limits are what empowers your creativity

Awhile back, I found this great video of how Robert Rodreguiz, director of the Spy Kids films and many others, used creative ideas to solve complex filming problems.  His limited technical budget included using skateboards, thinking backwards, and a treadmill from a local academy.  This is a great video about implementing improvement ideas and making them work under constraints.  Take particular note of the fantastic quote about how limits can force your imagination to go places it has never been before at the 3:17-3:36 minute mark.  Creativity over capital!

What movie have you improved today?
