The Creative Class

A collection of conversations on the creative industries.

In partnership with WeTransfer, TheCreativeClass.tv is a Present Plus original film series and platform that explores creative thinking with some of the most innovative practitioners working today.

Filmed in their own surroundings, each subject shares their thoughts on their practice, their process and how technology is changing the way they work.

We have been lucky enough to produce three seasons of the series so far. The multi-award-winning first two series features the likes of Damon Albarn, Penny Martin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tom Dixon and Nancy Tilbury. For series three, we journeyed with WeTransfer creative director and world-renowned DJ Gilles Peterson to Cuba to sit down with five people shaping the creative landscape of this fascinating and rapidly-changing country.

“A huge part of the success of the series was the curation of the Class itself and the dynamic of each season's talent. Building a well oiled template for each episode and channel meant we could be free with the content itself, allowing each creative ownership of their own story. ”
