One of my all time favorite comedians, Joe Mande, released his comedy mixtape today.  The milk bit is one of my all time favorite comedy bits.

My standard joke — actually, I’m fairly serious — is that there are potentially more talented writers and directors than I working in shoe stores and Burger Kings across the nation; the difference is I was willing to put in the nine years of effort and they weren’t. More to the point, it took Thomas Edison a thousand attempts before he got that damn light bulb to turn on. Imagine if he’d gotten discouraged enough to quit after only nine hundred and ninety nine tries. The message here is simple, and John F. Kennedy said it best: ‘We choose to go to the moon not because it is easy, but because it is hard.’ Rough translation? If you have a dream, get up off your ass and start putting one foot in front of the other.

Do yourself an immense favor, and take an hour to listen to the great Bill Murray share his lessons learned on a life well lived.  He is an inspiration.

Just keep grinding, until the talent, the hard work, the effort to learn, and the good luck all come together at one time. And when they do, well, then you’re alright.

I have been following the cinephilearchive for a while now, and been wanting to post a link.  This one feels like a pretty good one because of the treasure trove of videos linked to below.  But follow these guys.  They post great stuff on filmmaking daily!

cinephilearchive:

“I grew up on horror movies and monster movies, but I’ve never actually made a scary movie” notes Tim Burton as he explores his quirky, macabre works (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), friendship with Johnny Depp and a lifelong fascination with animation.

BAFTA's (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Guru Program is an online educational resource for filmmakers that features new and archived lectures and other materials culled from the organizations current presentations and extensive calalog of lectures series and masterclasses. For its Guru Program, BAFTA has a new website where content includes long-form lectures and interviews featuring notable artists such as Martin Scorsese, Joel and Ethan Coen, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Meryl Streep, and Tilda Swinton, among others. BAFTA will continually add to these, incorporating the academy’s public events and presentations that will be streamed live to reach wider audeinces.

On the 30th of September 2011, in front of a sell-out theatre at the BFI in London, Charlie Kaufman delivered the final lecture in BAFTA’s 2011 Screenwriters’ Lecture Series. Director/Editor Eliot Rausch extracted five minutes from Kaufman’s speech, and cut over a video titled What I have to Offer.
