Hear Kevin Smith’s Three Tips For Wannabe Filmmakers

In the clip below, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Chasing Amy, Clerks and Dogma director Kevin Smith gives three pieces of rather awesome advice to Canadian filmmaker and video producer Gavin Michael Booth. Open Culture summed it up in three main points. Their summary lacks the swearing that makes Smith’s talk a must-listen (and see when he does talks in your city.)

1 – “You have to have a reasonable amount of unreasonability.”

2 – “You have to know… what hills you’re willing to die on.”

3 – “You have to learn how to kill your babies.” He means this symbolically. Just letting you know.
