Taika Waititi, one of my all time favourite directors, has a creative mind like no other.
He has an unusual take on life, and his films often portray humour in the mundane. Characters are usually wacky, crazy, far out versions of real people, but played in a deadpan way
This video, Taika Waititi: Mastering Happy Sad Cinema, explains exactly what goes on in the mind of the innovative genius.
If you’re not familiar with Waititi’s films, I strongly suggest you check them out. They’re unique and often heartwarming, making the audience feel ok with their flaws and can bring inspiration to any member of the audience no matter where they’re at in life.
