Oh wow - a couple of things here - at the age of 45 I am starting all over again and have taken up photography - Nancy's words inspire me so much - hard work is key I believe..

and re yesterday's post - these are the sort of people (Nancy) who will ensure that your industry will continue to have validity and be meaningful in these tough and scary times!

I love Nancy's candid words. " I am more into real life than movies" when asked what movies inspire her. What a perfect, honest answer. It reminded me of the real estate agent I know who said her coworkers disliked her because she had been living in the same house she bought when she got married over 25 years ago whereas the philosophy in real estate is to buy a new bigger , more expensive home every 5 to 10 years.


Dear Bill,
Congratulations for your blog! Boy, it looks very good and your posts are very interesting (I almost finish reading all of them). Elsa has done a great job with the banner!
What a couple! So talented!
Se puede aguantar tanto arte?
Un fuerte abrazo!

Dear Bill. We are very happy to have this blog with us and to have the opportunity to approach who looked like to us a charming person when we knew you here in Cuba. If Elsita is your fan number one, we want that you know that we are the number 1.1.
Iván and Zhenia.

Elsita :)

Nancy is the real deal, she has a personal and unique voice. Lars and the Real Girl is one of my favorite movies ever. The interview is great, I can't wait to read more tomorrow!


Nancy Oliver is like a breath of fresh air. I agree with her that having to write to a specific formula is very offputting, as is watching a formulaic movie. Thanks for the introduction to this independent and creative spirit. I'll have to check out the movie soon.

I don't know what this says about me, but I love reading about films and how they're made just as much as I love watching them. Thanks for creating a thoughtful space to explore your craft.


Welcome to the blogosphere, Bill. Insightfull post. :) Looking forward to more.

I, too, am a fan of her work. Especially Lars.

I think I heard an interview where she was consulted on the actual making of the film, allowed on-set during the making, and generally respected by the director. It seems having the writer involved in the production all the way can pay off.

I look forward to part two.


I went out of town for a few days and the first thing I did when I got home was check my answering machine, my email, and your blog! Today I rented Lars & the Real Girl for tonight in anticipation of your interview.


Hi there Bill,
I help host a blog for Life Through Art Foundation a non-profit organization that raises money for kids to pursue the arts. I would love to post one of your interviews in the future. I have lots of visual art info but very little for theatrical...Please take a look.
