In this week's Academy Originals we asked several filmmakers to tell us what is inspiring them in art, music, and/or film.
David O. Russell, Steve McQueen, Hans Zimmer, and Matthew McConaughey, among others, gave us answers like Kanye West, black-and-white still photography and "The Book of Mormon on Broadway".
Let us know in the comments below what's inspiring you right now.
If you'd like to see more of our series where we ask moviemakers Questions, be sure to check out what the responses were when we asked them their advice to aspiring filmmakers.
And don't miss the video where we asked filmmakers "What Was The First Movie That Made You Cry?"
