Back on the WTF with Marc Maron grind, I back-to-back listened to his interviews with Lynn Shelton and Todd Haynes, two independent film directors. Both were cool and I would encourage anyone interested in film to check them out. Lynn Shelton’s films include Humpday (2009), Touchy Feely (2013), and Your Sister’s Sister (2011). Full disclosure, I’ve seen known of her films, but many are on my “To-watch” list and I guarantee you I’m bumping them up after listening to her chat with Maron. I think the thing I liked most about her interview was when she mentioned how her initial pre-pubescent creativity faded (not necessarily faded, rather went into hiding due to self-consciousness) and it took a lot to eventually get back into it with confidence. She wrote poetry, did photography, then started getting into avant-guarde film. And only later in life did she get into directing narrative features. That gives me hope that it’s never to late to start a new venture. I’ve been thinking a lot about what will I do next after I leave Taiwan and how all the things I’d like to do I have no real formal training in. I think it’s nice to know that with true passion, you can pursue anything.
