Video: Joss Whedon

This weekend Joss Whedon talks at the Sydney Opera House and I thought it would be a good reason to show a short clip giving us an insight in his writing world. He talks about his writing habits and his preference for characters who grow and learn.

“Sitcoms didn’t resonate with me as much because, you know, wacky situation after wacky situation… I start to get a little twitchy. What have we learned?” … “We don’t have to hug, we don’t have to share but we have change. We have to figure out something or forget something, we have to make a mistake. If we’re not doing that, then, honestly, why are we here?”

  1. Nice teaser to Joss Whedon’s world. His comments on change and mistakes resonate strongly with me in my character explorations. Should be a great show at the Opera House.
