There’s been a bit of buzz this past week about muliti-hyphenate screenwriter/director/film producer/actor/musician Mark Duplass and his keynote address at South by Southwest (SXSW), which is a large film, interactive, and music festival held in Austin, Texas. He talked about avoiding a theatrical release early in your career and just shooting cheaply, even with camera phones. Haven’t come across his entire speech yet but it reminded me a bit of Patton Oswalt’s speech at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in 2012 where he talks about the Hollywood gatekeepers disappearing and shooting with your cell phone. Both are very inspiring.
