If you haven’t heard his name yet, you’ll probably hear about him when one of the most popular movies, Thor: Ragnarok, releases. His talk on TED confirms once again: Taika Waititi is one of a kind.
This talk is so inspirational because Waititi is simply his own, humorous self. Among many profound things, he shared:
“I come from a background where people have said you have to have one single job and stick with it. Well, I don’t believe that. In this day and age I think people have things they want to express and you need to have a wide range of tools […] film happened to be an amalgam of all the things I was interested in.”
He’s not set on being a filmmaker for the rest of his life, film is simply something he happens to use right now.
To all artists who tend to worry a bit, be inspired by his talk, take away from it what applies to you, and have fun being creative!
