A Conversation With Brit Marling About Being A Creative

Brit Marling is an inspiration to all independent filmmakers that there really is a place for creativity and success as an indie filmmaker. As one of the creators of Netflix Original, The OA, she’s changing the definition of what it means to tell an innovative story.

In an interview with GoldDerby, Brit talks about creating The OA, sharing what inspired the story, the writing process, casting the characters and more. While they only talk about season one, there are some fun little moments that help clarify things from season two.

What I love about this particular interview is how unplugged it is, it’s just two creatives talking story via Google Chat. It makes them more relatable and also serves as a reminder that with a bit of passion and tenacity, indie filmmakers can make a story that’s heard on a larger platform.

It’s a bit long, but totally worth it, if for no other reason than it being a source of inspiration for you to keep creating.
