Thick Skin.

Going into a weird, rough, completely outside my spectrum of experience week. I promised myself I'd say "yes" to everything. And now I'm doing a hundred things. Responsible to a cast, crew, director, writers, designers, and countless others. I'm fucking terrified. And beyond excited.

I'm at my best when I'm busy.

This is a brand new project that my department has never attempted. The only expectations we have are those we place on the project. I expect to learn a lot.

I'm tougher than I thought.

Film is fun.

The internet is an abundant resource and I'm so thankful to be in this particular age of creativity and technology. We have so much new technology that makes making films easier than ever. "If you want to, there's no excuse not to be making films yourself."

Here we go...

CLAIRE DANES: Your character, Hannah, is fumbling and struggling and terrified to really commit to her work, even though she is obviously very gifted. It's like she has a confidence that she's not even aware of.

LENA DUNHAM: It's sort of like the naivety of youth. It's interesting how we often can't see the ways in which we are being strong—like, you can't be aware of what you're doing that's tough and brave at the time that you're doing it because if you knew that it was brave, then you'd be scared.
