Tony Dyson was the special-effects designer who created the wildly popular robot, R2D2, for the Star Wars films. He died last Friday at the age of 68. He created many other robots and special effects for movies and loved his work.

 

When asked to define creativity, he said:

 

“The ability to know to play, to think outside the box, and to apply logic but also imagination.”

 

When asked by the same young man how to make himself more creative, Dyson said:

 

“Definitely play more. Have a playful attitude. See the joy in everything you come across and enjoy life by the moment.”
