Interview with Julia Stiles "Blue"
and "Paloma" on WIGS 3/15/13
FBC PUBLICITY: The WIGS Conference Call
March 15, 2013/9:30 PDT
Moderator: Welcome to The WIGS Conference Call. At this time
all participants are in listen-only mode. Later, we will
conduct a question and answer session. I would like to
remind you that this conference is being recorded. I would
now like to turn the conference over to Ms. Michelle Marron.
Also, this conference is on behalf of Blue.
Michelle: Hi, everybody; thank you again for taking part in
the conference call this morning with Julia on behalf of
Series Blue and Paloma on WIGS the number one channel for
scripted drama on YouTube. As you know, Season II of Blue,
which stars Julia as a single mother trying to protect her
son from the consequences of a secret career as an upscale
escort, premiered first thing this morning. New episodes are
going to be made available on the channel the next three
In addition to Blue, Julia will be able to answer questions
about Paloma, which is a new four episode series that she
wrote and directed, which will premiere later this spring.
It stars Grace Gummer as a young woman dealing with the
unpredictability of a relationship both in romance and the
workplace. All episodes for the series can be found at
Before we turn it over to Julia, the Moderator (Donna) is
going to explain how you guys can get in to the queue to ask
your questions, and then weíll jump right in.
Moderator: We do have a question that is coming from the line
of Jamie Ruby from Scifivision.com.
Jamie: Thanks for doing the call.
Julia: Yeah, my pleasure. Thank you for joining me.
Jamie: So what made you decide to do a web series in the
Julia: You know what, it was as simple as wanting to work
with Rodrigo Garcia, and I really love the way he wrote. He
approached me about doing Blue I guess a little over more
than a year ago. At first I was a little bit reluctant about
the idea of a web series only because I didnít know what to
expect, and I didnít know really how the programming on
YouTube would develop, but I was intrigued also by the idea
because I thought this is kind of the wave of the future and
the way that people watch shows more and more, you know on
their devices and on the computer.
But what really sold me was the first scene of the first
episode in Season 1. It was just such a great premise and
setup for a show, which is that this girl leading a double
life is going to be constantly dealing with how to manage
that and how to control it and that the two worlds are going
to collide. In Season 1 she is with a client and as things
get hot and heavy she realizes that he recognizes her from
high school. I just thought that the idea that sheís trying
to keep something so secretiveóa character thatís living
with a huge secret to me that was worth exploring. Then I
sort of looked at the idea of doing a web series
differently, which is that I do get a lot of creative
freedom that you sometimes donít get when thereís a lot more
money involved or if youíre working with a movie studio or a
Jamie: Definitely. Can you really quick though tell us a bit
too about Paloma since we donít really know much about that?
Julia: Sure. Itís four episodes and itís basically a
rumination on love and how delicate love is. Itís a year in
a couplesí relationship and how like the presence of a third
person can destroy that relationship even if thereís no
infidelity or foul play. Itís just like the idea of this
girl being attracted to somebody else and a lot of suspicion
and jealousy arises. But itís about a young woman who works
in an art gallery, and she has a very flirtatious
relationship with her boss that could help advance her
career, and that ends up confusing her and also just
destroying this loving relationship that she had with her
Jamie: Great. Canít wait and Iím loving Blue so far.
Julia: Thank you.
Moderator: We do have a question coming from the line of
Karen Benardello from Yahoo Voices.
Karen: Julia, I just wanted to ask youóyou mentioned earlier
about having differences on the set of Blue because it is a
web seriesóhow do you feel that the overall filming practice
for Blue and Paloma as well since theyíre both web series do
they differ at all from the films on the other network
television shows that you have done either creatively or
Julia: Well, I think that the way that viewers watch them is
different but day to day I felt like I was on a set of a TV
show. The turnaround is faster so whereas in movies and with
television shows the amount of time it takes to get
something developed and financed and the setup and shot and
out in theatres or on TV is so long. I mean it can be years,
and the exciting thing about what weíre doing with WIGS is
that we can accomplish so much more so quickly. I wrote Paloma in September and itís already finished, and we shot
Blue in November and December and itís already being aired.
In terms of technically itís really not that different. We
use very professional crews and good production value and
the cameras are pretty sophisticated, but creatively itís
different. Itís just much more contained so really when we
were making Blue it was really about my collaboration with
Rodrigo and when I was making Paloma I would look to Jon
Avnet, our producer and the creator of the channel, for
guidance. He gave me so much freedom to just go with my
vision, and thatís really different from I think when youíre
working on a studio film. You have a lot of executives with
opinions and usually valid opinions but because thereís so
much more money at stake I think theyíre a lot more people
to answer to. We didnít really have that with Blue or Paloma.
Karen: Okay. Thank you.
Moderator: Our next question will come from the line of Reg
Seeton from Thedeadbolt.com.
Reg: Hi, Julia; thanks for taking the time today.
Julia: Hi, sure. The Deadbolt that sounds very New York; Iíll
have to check it out.
Reg: Cool. How do you look at Blue; where Blue is at in her
life in relation to what many women confront about the
Julia: Well, in some ways itís really normal, in some ways
itís really extraordinary. Her work as a call girl is very
extraordinary and not the norm, obviously, but her
relationship with her son isóI think sheís confronting his
adolescence in a way that is probably pretty normal for most
mothers and sons. Heís starting to be interested in girls
and sheís got to deal with answering all those questions
about sex, and sheís also uncomfortable with it.
Also, sheís a young mother so it gets a little confusing
between the two of them like what is the parent/child
relationship, and sometimes they act like siblings, and who
is actually parenting whom. Then another interesting thing
that we approach in Season II is that because he started
acting out in school they both have to go to therapy. I
think probably a lot of mothers donít like the idea of their
son having to be in therapy because the first person the
therapist is going to look to blame is the mother, but also
a mother like Blue who has such a web of lies that sheís
tangled in the last place that she wants to be is in a
therapistís office being asked questions about her past so
it gets interesting.
Reg: And since you wrote and directed Paloma what place is it
coming from in terms of what you know and what you wanted to
Julia: Well, itís funny because when Rodrigo was talking to
me about a second season of Blue we were discussing story
ideas. I said, ďWould you guys be open to the idea of me
directing something?Ē and they said, ďYeah. Absolutely. Go
write it.Ē And I thought should I write something really
political and intellectual and meaningful, and instead IóI
mean I think the story is meaningful but I decided to write
something that I would want to watch, and I also wrote it
very specifically for the channel. I donít know. I guess
itís as simple as I wrote something that I would want to
watch. It was very much on my mind like questioning the idea
of love and romantic love and how delicate that can be, and
then a lot of it was just from my imagination. I knew that I
had the opportunity to direct and so I just let my
imagination kind of run wild.
Reg: Well, great job with everything and good luck in the
Julia: Thank you.
Moderator: Our next question will come from the line of David
Martindale from Hearst Newspapers.
David: Hi, Julia. Pardon my voice; I had tongue surgery less
than two months ago; Iím making a recovery. Iím very
self-conscious about it.
Julia: Oh, Iím very sorry to hear that.
David: Itís okay; Iím getting better.
Julia: Oh, well, I wouldnít have noticed but I hope you
David: Thank you. Technology has changed so much the way that
we watch television and film the way itís delivered to
viewers. I was curious how you watch your television and
film. Do you watch it on your computer? Do you watch it on
your phone? Do you find different ways to watch it, and has
the making of this show, your involvement in it affected the
way that you watch your film and television?
Julia: Well, Iím still trying to figure that out; meaning
where and how to watch things. I actually cancelled my cable
a few months ago because I thoughtówell, first of all I was
traveling but I also thought like there are so many channels
and so many things out there that I just felt like there was
a lot of white noise. I thought I can just watch everything
on the Internet, but I still like the bigger screen so I
donít thinkóI donít know. Iím still trying to figure it out,
and I still go to the movies. I like to sit in a dark
theatre, and I enjoy the projection of film.
But as technology gets better and better I do think if you
can really focus your attention on your computer screen
thenóthatís really the big challenge to me but luckily what
weíve been able to do with WIGS and Blue in particular is
like you can watch one episode at a time or you can watch a
bunch of episodes. If you watch them all the way through the
story of Ö actually about the length of a movie, but weíve
made sure that in telling the story that it holds for the
hour and a half that is the first season.
David: All right. It is funny how screens are getting bigger
and smaller but conventional sized ones seem to be
disappearing I think. You know theyíre really huge or
theyíre really small. Anyway, thank you so much.
Julia: Thank you.
Moderator: Our next question will come from the line of Gerry
Miller from MNN.
Gerry: Hi, Julia. I found something online that shows you got
involved in this kind of thing before. You did a spoof that
was very cute on being a fashion designer for an
environmental line; it was all a joke. Do you know what Iím
Julia:Yeah. Yeah. The Julia Stiles Styles yeah.
Gerry: What prompted that?
Julia: Actually, itís funny that you mentioned that because
the same guy that I did that video with we made a movie
called Itís a Disaster thatís available on-demand now and
will be out in theatres in April. Also, America Ferrerra and
David Cross are in it. What prompted that is they were
friends of mine and we had been hanging out in L.A. while I
was doing a play there, and I liked their comic work. They
had done a movie called The Seamstress that I saw and a
bunch of different videos, and oddly enough making spoofs
about Google. We were just talking one day and they had
ideas for these videos, and I thought why not itíd be fun.
Gerry: Are you actually eco conscious? The reason I ask is
MNN is like we Ö so even though that was a spoof do you do
anything thatís eco conscious in your life?
Julia: Yeah even simple things like trying to limit my use of
plastic bags. If I can get rid of the number of plastic bags
itís like a personal challenge for me not to use plastic or
reuse Ö. I always get made when I go to the grocery store
and I forgot my little canvas bag.
Gerry: Yeah. The trick is to put them all back in the car.
Julia: Oh, but I donít have a car see so I already have Ö.
Gerry: How do you get around L.A.?
Julia: No. I live in New York.
Gerry: Oh, you live in New York okay. Were all the shows shot
Julia: No. The show is shot in L.A.
Gerry: So you came out here for that.
Julia: Yeah. We shot it in like less than two months so I
just come out for a short period of time.
Gerry: Ah, okay. I got you. Thanks.
Moderator: Our next question will come from the line of Traci
Grant from Thestarscoop.com.
Traci: Hi, Julia; how are you?
Julia: Hi, good; how are you?
Traci: Good. I was hoping you could talk a little bit just
about your reaction, what was going through your head when
you found out Blue would be able to come back and that you
guys would get to do more episodes? I know the viewers are
really excited about it when we found out that series was
coming back. How were you feeling about it and what were you
Julia: Oh I was really excited. It was really fun to talk to
Rodrigo about story ideas, but then also one thing thatís
really, really lovely about the WIG channel is itís like the
first time I felt like Iím part of a community. A lot of
times when you work on a movie or a TV show you get very,
very close to the people that youíre working with, and then
you may or may not keep in touch with them. But particularly
because I got to work on Blue twice and then work on Paloma
with the same crew and the same production office I feel
like Iíve developed a real wonderful closeness with Rodrigo
Garcia and Jon Avnet. They were wonderful mentors to me but
also even just seeing the same crew members every day is
really comforting and nice.
Traci: Definitely. Is there anything that you can share with
us about some of the upcoming episodes? Any spoilers or
things to get people excited?
Julia: Well, if you can imagine that Blue has to go to
therapy I think thatís such aówhen Rodrigo suggested that we
have Blue and her son see a therapist I thought that was
really interesting because obviously most people choose to
go to therapy, but because Blue is forced to go there the
idea that somebody who is leading a double life and trying
to keep so many secrets that she would be asked lots of
questions about her past I think is a perfect setup for
Traci: Okay. Thank you so much for your time today; I
Julia: Thank you.
Moderator: Our next question will come from the line of
Stephanie Webber from Ology Media.
Stephanie: Hi, Julia; thank you so much. Congratulations on
Silver Linings Playbook. You were great in it.
Julia: Oh, thank you so much. Iím glad you liked it.
Stephanie: Well, a lot of my questions have been asked but
obviously WIGSóI liked how you said itís a community and
itís definitely about like women empowerment, and a lot of
roles that you seem to choose anything from even Ten Things
I Hate about You theyíre definitely empowering. How do you
go about choosing certain roles?
Julia: Itís interesting you say that because I donít think
that Blue is very empowered but how do I choose? You know
the platform doesnít really matter to me whether itís stage
or theatre or even a web series. I just am more interested
in like if itís a story that I would want to watch and if
itís a character that I feel like I can contribute something
to then thatís really what gets me. I mean it starts with
good writing but I also like toóIíve learned more and more
that especially with film and TV it has a lot to do with who
the director is and if I like the directorís vision.
Stephanie: And obviously you started out a lot with acting
but now that youíre directing Paloma what was that
experience like and has that always been kind of a goal of
yours? Would you like to direct more in the future whether
it be YouTube, TV, or film?
Julia: Yes. I had directed a short film many years ago that Ö
is in and I got hooked. I think the biggest trick is finding
ways to practice, and I thought it was too big of a leap to
jump in to like a feature and plus itís very hard to get
feature films made. But when I started working with Jon and
Rodrigo I thought this is a great platform and a great
opportunity to try my hand at directing again.
I think yeah I just saw an opportunity there, and also itís
a question of having a story that youíre interested in
exploring for a good amount of time because directing is a
real time commitment. But yeah I think itís one of the most
joyous things that Iíve experience while I was making Paloma
was watching something that was in your imagination when
youíre sitting alone at a computer come to life, and then
kind of take on a life of its own.
Stephanie: I just have to ask, I saw that you were casted as
the lead in Bell Jar and it was funny how it was referenced
in Ten Things I Hate about You and Silver Linings Playbook.
Was that just coincidence or have you always been a fan of
Julia: Well, the interesting thing is thatís sort of a
hangover on IMDb. We havenít actually made a movie about The
Bell Jar. I had been trying to set it up as a movie for a
long time, and it wasnít really the right timing. Who knows?
You never know - it could become something in the future,
but yes I love that book, and I think that itís perfect for
being visualized whether on film or maybe like a short
series on TV.
Stephanie: Well, thank you so much and good luck. Iím excited
to see the rest of Blue next season.
Julia: Thank you.
Moderator: Our next question will come from the line of Jerry
Nunn with Windy City Times.
Jerry: Hi, Julia. I was wondering if you could talk about
working with Jennifer Beals because I love her and have met
her and sheís awesome.
Julia: Yeah sheís great. We didnít actually work together but
I did meet her while we were on the set. Sheís really,
really lovely but sheís in a different series on the WIGS
channel called Lauren that should come out after Blue I
think. Yeah I mean who doesnít like Jennifer Beals?
Jerry: Right. Also, I work for LGBT Publication; was there
any kind of characters or angles to the story, things like
that that you thought about?
Julia: For Blue having to do with Ö?
Jerry: Yeah the one that you had written or you know that.
Julia: Iím not sure I know what you mean.
Jerry: If there were any characters or anything for viewer
that are gay or Ö?
Julia: A few of the scenes in Paloma thereís a lot of
discussion about sex and particularly sex with women, like
she and her boyfriend are discussing the idea of a
Jerry: Okay. All right. Cool. Iíll have to check that out.
Awesome. Thanks so much.
Moderator: The next question will come from the line of Tim
Nydell from Rockbottom.
Tim: Hey, whatís up, Julia? How you doing today?
Julia: Hi, good; how are you?
Tim: Iím doing great. I want to know more about Paloma. What
else can you tell us about that and when can viewers see it?
Julia: I think theyíll be able to see it after Blue is
finished airing. I think that might be the spring. Iím not
really sure. What more can I tell you? Grace Gummer is in
it. Garret Dillahunt plays her boss. Rhys Coiro plays her
boyfriend. Forgive me if Iím repetitive because I have been
talking about it all day long.
Itís about a year in a coupleís relationships, and how the
presence of a third person can kind of destroy that
relationship. Itís rumination on love and how delicate love
can be. Grace Gummer plays a girl who works in an art
gallery and she has a very flirtatious relationship with her
boss, which could be beneficial to her career, and so not
only is that confusing but it also disrupts her romantic
relationship with her boyfriend. One of the lines in it is I
donít think that people really commit to anything anymore so
it was also just my exploration of the idea of how we have
such growing Attention Deficit Disorder and not even just in
terms of technology but that even like enters the way that
we socialize and it can disrupt your romantic life; even
like the idea of is monogamy even possible.
Moderator: Our next question comes from the line of Jane
Gassociationer from Midlife Bloggers.
Jane: Hi, Julia; thanks for doing this. I have two questions.
The first one is I found Julia Stiles Blog is that really
Julia: It was really me but right now I havenít updated it in
forever, and I have to get on that. I sort of let it go for
a second, but I shouldóit was really me but itís now beenóI
donít know. I havenít checked it in a while itís a little
Jane: Itís wonderful.
Julia: Oh thank you.
Jane: My other question was you talked that you didnít think
Blue is very empowered, and one of the things that struck me
and it struck me particularly in the scene with her mother
is how full of rage she is and really kind of shutdown. Can
you talk about that a bit?
Julia: Thatís very well put. Sheís got a lot of issues. I
think one of the things thatóitís hard not to judge it when
Iím playing her but when you look from the outside you can
so easily psychoanalyze Blue but I feel like itís
unfortunately a very typical phenomena where she is very
confused sexually, is kind of damaged, and she idolizes her
father who is less than worthy of it and demonizes her
mother unfortunately. So that first scene sheís really
letting out all of her rage out on her mother.
Jane: Okay. Great.
Julia: I mean Ö person because sheóoh, okay. Sorry.
Jane: No go ahead.
Julia: Oh no. Itís just we pick up Season II right where we
left off with Blue and at the end of Season I she is
revisiting this very confused sexual relationship with an
older man who probably abused her when she was younger, and
right on the heels of that sheís traumatized but also as
soon as you see her breakdown we see her having lunch with
her mother, and itís like she takes it all out on her
mother. Itís almost like sheís a child still.
Jane: Okay. That makes sense. I didnít follow that from the
last scene to the beginning of the second season so that
really makes sense where all that anger was coming from.
Thank you. Good luck.
Julia: Thank you.
Moderator: Our next question will come from the line of Simon
Applebaum from Tomorrow will be Televised.
Simon: In your dealings with Jon and Rodrigo what is
everybody involved with WIGS ultimately would like to see
this network do? Do they see it ultimately graduating to a
television network? Do they see it being a major force with
YouTube, particularly with smart TVs now being the way
people are watching web content, and also, on a second level
opening up opportunities acting, writing, directing for
women and women of color?
Julia: Jon and Rodrigo can answer that better than I could,
but I think itís still a work in progress, and so ideally
they would like to be able to maintain the creative control
over the work that we do and just have it seen by as many
people as possible. We donít really know what that means,
traditional TV, or just a bigger platform on YouTube, but
itís still sort of a work in progress. A perfect example,
theyíre creating more opportunities for women to write and
direct because they created an opportunity to give me the
opportunity to do that.
Simon: By the way, Julia, now that FOX is involved with WIGS
in terms of helping market and promote and develop the
channel has anybody from FOX approached you about maybe
turning Blue or Paloma in to a series for FOX or FX or any
of the other FOX owned networks?
Julia: Again, thatís a better question for Jon. Nobody has
approached me just because itís still really new. We just
launched it today. Weíre seeing where it goes, and I know
that thereís the potential for FOX to do that. They already
started airing some of the ads for Blue on some of their
programming on TV. Theyíre really getting behind us in terms
of the marketing of it all and weíll see where it goes.
Simon: Okay. Thanks very much, Julia. Good luck with both
Julia: Thank you.
Moderator: Our next question will come from the line of Jamie
Ruby from Scifivision.com.
Jamie: Hi, again. I apologize if this has been asked. I
forgot to plug in my computer and it disconnected me. Is it
hard for you to get in to the mindset of Blue?
Julia: Itís hard for me toóI wouldnít say hard because I just
do it because I know thatís my job, but I feel like it
definitely is difficult like day to day. When we were
shooting I was in sort of a darker place, and that was the
first time I had experienced that as an actress because the
reality of some of the things that she experiences are
pretty uncomfortable. As much as itís really intriguing to
play a character that is covering up so many lies and kind
of lying to herself itís not the most comfortable feeling
every day. Itís pretty disturbing from the things that sheís
Also itís hard for me like now that Iím out of it and Iíve
step out of the experience of shooting and being in that
character I could easily psychoanalyze her but I didnít want
to be judgmental while we were shooting. Thatís the most
difficult thing. Like I wouldnít stop and say, ďWell, why is
she doing this?Ē because that would be sort of paralyzing.
Jamie: Right. Thatís sort of the other thing I was going to
ask. Is it difficult to step back out of that, like did it
take a while or did you just kind of brush it off fast?
Julia: No I was ready to brush it off. I was ready to let the
Jamie: Okay. Great. Thank you.
Moderator: Our next question comes from the line of Kelly
Bryant from Okmagazine.com.
Kelly Hi, Julia. I wanted to know if you could talk a little
bit about the casting of Grace Gummer in Paloma.
Julia: Sure. I had seen her in a play in New York called The
Columnist with John Lithgow, and I was really struck by her
presence. I was struck by the fact that she had to play a
variety of different ages. She played even like a teenager,
and I thought that she really pulled that off well and
thatís a difficult thing to do. Her physicality was really
remarkable on stage, and I was just really impressed. I
think also with theatre actors or actors who have a lot of
experience in theatre have a whole other skillset, and so
she just was delightful and kind of alike a beacon of light.
I thought of her for the part and luckily she responded to
the material, and we were able to work it out.
Kelly Great. Thank you.
Moderator: Our next question will come from the line of Jamie
Ruby from scifivision.com.
Jamie: Again, hi. Is there anything in particular that youíve
learned about yourself since you started working on Blue?
Julia: It sounds counterintuitive but I learned that Iím a
lot more modest than I even thought I was. Intellectually I
could say to Rodrigoówhen we were coming up with story ideas
I said, ďWe have to be realistic about this girlís job and
some of the experiences she has with her clients have to be
dangerous otherwise weíre just not being realistic.Ē And so
he wrote scenes where the clients are not so nice to her,
and then we would get to the set and Iíd be like, ďOh, shit.
Well, I signed up for this.Ē Yeah I think that was the
Jamie: Okay. Can you describe your character in three words?
Julia: Blue, okay. Confused, secretive, and childish at
Jamie: Okay. Thank you.
Moderator: We have a question coming from the line of Gerry
Miller from MNN.
Gerry: Hi, Julia, again. I have a question about all the
other cast members in Blue. How you got them to participate.
Were they all really open to doing a web series in the first
place like Kathleen Quilan and William Peterson or did they
jump right on board?
Julia: That was largely I think to Rodrigoís credit. They all
seemed really excited to be there, and I was certainly
impressed with the cast that we got. There was noóyeah it
was great to have people show up on set who really wanted to
be there because they loved the material, and nobody was
getting rich from this. It was interesting to act with a
different person every day. I donít know but I think I
largely credit Rodrigo with the casting decisions.
Gerry: Okay. Because itís a new medium and you didnít get the
sense that they were reluctant to try anything like that
because it was different from what they were used to?
Julia: No. By the time they got to set I think, yeah,
everyone was sort of excited and intrigued at the
possibility of making good scripted content for the web.
Also on set it didnít feel likeówe have a professional crew,
and we have advanced cameras, and the actual logistics of
making the show are not that much different from being on
stage on any TV show. But they also would come in for like a
day here and there so I think they were down for the
Gerry: And you making so many more episodes the second season
than the first was that intentional or thereís so much more
story to tell or what was the thought there?
Julia: I think it was yeah there was more story to tell, more
ground to cover. The episodes are short so I think itís also
the nature of the Internet is that thereís so much content
out there that in order to compete you really have to make a
lot. It was a lot. Ö yeah it was double what we did the
second time but I think that we did it because we could.
Gerry: Okay. Thank you.
Michelle: Okay. I think weíre about to wrap up the conference
call unless there is one more question.
Moderator: We do have another question.
Michelle: Okay. This will be the final question though. Thank
Moderator: And that will come from the line of Jane
Gassociationer from Midlife Bloggers.
Jane: Hi, Julia, again. I was also struck by the kind of
intimacy that watching Blue on the small screen give. I
wondered as an actress are you doing anything different? Do
you have to think of anything, does that affect you or is it
all done in the editing and directing?
Julia: Itís largely driven by the director. Rodrigo would
constantly tell usólike the reason that weíre all here and
the reason that this kind of thing is exciting in terms of
the creative freedom that weíre given is that his style is
really to emphasize the moments in between dialog. He would
always tell us to slow down and just to let moments play
out, and we didnít have to rush. Like a lot of times with
traditional television theyíre competing to keep your
attention in between ads so thereís a lot more explicitly
said in dialog. Rodrigo was really emphasizing that we could
treat this almost like a movie where you can let moments
In terms of while I was acting I was tryingóI didnít really
treat it any differently in terms of like the screen size,
but when I directed Paloma I remember thinking I was aware
of like I donít want to be too subtle because I think that
people are watching this on smaller screens. Also, itís a
very intimate experience to be watching something at your
computer but you never know like somebody could be watching
it from their computer at work or they could be watching it
from their computer with another group of people or on an
airplane or something. Itís hard to predict and you canít
control where somebody is going to be watching what you make
so you kind of just have to try and tell the best story that
you can and hope it translates.
Jane: Okay. Thank you.
Julia: I mean people could be checking their email while
theyíre watching so you know.
Jane: I donít think so. Itís pretty riveting.
Julia: Oh, thank you. Thank you so much.
Michelle: Okay. Thank you all so much for participating in
our conference call today. I will be sending you all an
email with a reminder of how you can receive an audio
