“Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.”
—Pietro Aretino
When the weather outside is frightful, it’s the perfect time to retreat inside and cultivate your creativity. For centuries artists have used the quiet of winter to turn inward and let their passions fuel their projects. But we don’t want to sound like a cheesy motivational poster—sometimes inspirational just doesn’t cut it and our creativity needs a kick in the pants.

That’s why we’ve created this video of our favorite winter stock footage—featuring some of our most popular time lapses, slow motion clips, and aerial drone footage—matched with some hilarious but terrible life advice. While we can’t recommend following these tips to the letter, a little humor and beauty can be just what the doctor ordered to get the creative juices flowing.
