My school thought booking a bunch of kids into jail would inspire folks to do the right thing. Given how many people I know in prison, I don't think it worked. I've never been, but it isn't because of that moment. How can I record music and make films in jail? No bueno.
I once filmed a sunrise in China and made an Altmanesqe film within view of the Hollywood sign. Spontaneous is the best, and if it happens under headphones, then even better.
