Among some friends, this seems to be how we feel about September so far.
Because change is good! Film colliding with television would be fun and smart viewing.
Werner Herzog, John Waters, David Lynch, Brothers Quay, Guy Maddin, Gaspar Noé, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Darren Aronofsky, Pedro Almodóvar, Jim Jarmusch, Wim Wenders, Coen Brothers.
Let’s see what these awesome directors can do if they had 100% control over artistic direction with major network sitcoms and/or dramas, including reality shows.
Would aspects of the shows improve or offer us an alternate view of the character’s lives?
Would John Waters want to work with Honey Boo Boo or would Herzog steer the show into a bleak but still oddly hilarious narrative documentary?
To me the best audition always sucks. I don’t care how well it goes. It’s still a hold up. It’s still someone telling you what to do, or I won’t let you go. Or I won’t give you what you want. You could lose yourself in it creatively and go, “Wow that was kinda fun.” But not really. You still had to get dressed and go there. The resentment to me of being put through it, of getting my clothes on and going and taking the elevator, the train or the bus or the plane or the fuckin’ whatever it is to get to these people so they can judge what you do for two minutes… I hate auditioning so much that I don’t go in on anything.
