“Who Knows What the Hell We Discussed”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We dive into some really deep stuff about humanity and our egos before talking a little bit about film and film adaptations. There’s lots of good stuff in here — there may be some sifting involved, but ultimately — “do what you gotta do”.
POINT #1: “HUMANITY IS THE FIRST LESSON”
-As artists, we are often allured to approaching our work from a technical standpoint first. The first thing an artist needs to be is a fully alive, compassionate human. When we connect to that our techniques are then informed by a deeper awareness.
POINT #2: “YOUR EGO IS A NUTJOB”
-The ego will tell you you’re no good and that there’s no sense in trying. Then, if you listen to it, it will tell you you’re lazy and will never amount to anything. It’s a losing game when you follow the voice of the ego. Just so you know.
POINT #3: “KNOW THYSELF”
-Knowing yourself isn’t about identifying yourself as this or that, it’s about recognizing how our experiences connect us to all of humanity. The rest is all play.
