I’d never heard someone else say that they really loved something but disliked talking about it with others and it made me happy to see that because this is exactly how I feel about film…I hate showing up early to classes because then I have to sit through people talking a lot of bs about movies…
homegherl (and shaun white) over here tumbling my thought process every time i step into that classroom. spot on.
i just can’t imagine making movies if all you think about is movies. you have to glean from life. it shouldn’t matter that you ‘once saw this actor in obscure film title who’s dad’s uncle’s brother-in-law did a short with the same guy who did obscure film title where interesting anecdote happened’
which is more or less, the fifteen minutes before class starts and about five minutes after (depending on the how long it takes the teacher to start - which is an entirely different rant on film school agony).
can i maybe print this out, post it in the comm building and see what kind of doodoo hits the fan?
