Mark Duplass on finding your voice.

“You have something unique to offer. And it usually lies in those weird conversations you’re having with your friends, your loved ones, your siblings, between midnight and three in the morning when everybody’s loopy and or drunk or stoned and you are laughing uncontrollably because you share this unique sense of humor about something that one of your friends did or you did. And at the risk of saying you should make a self indulgent film for your first movie, you should absolutely make a self-indulgent film for your first movie, because that’s like your special stuff… and when you tap into that… you’re going to find — it might be two weeks later, it might be two months later, it might be two years of doing this — that you have something unique to offer. And this is going to be the start of your career. “

— Mark Duplass from his South by Southwest Keynote, 2015
