Anna Paquin Interview
By E.C. Gladstone

EG: You still interested in Law?

AP: Yep.

EG: Do you have a favorite book?

AP: Hmm. I want to read more books by Tim O’Brien. I really like the way he writes. That’s probably my favorite book of the moment, The Things They Carried. Its about Vietnam, and Tim O’Brien was a soldier in the war…somewhat fictional, somewhat fact based sort of memories, stories, from his time in the war, and in a way that it was so kind of like impossible for those guys like to come back and just to fit back into their old lives because no one really had any idea what they’d been through and how traumatic it was and that it was just this huge big thing that they didn’t really have any way of dealing with. It’s a really good book. I would definitely recommend it.

EG: Photography–did you ever think that you’d do something with that seriously?

AP: I think if anyone wanted to do a display of my photographs I would be so beyond flattered. I really like it. I’ve become more aware of what directors actually have to do, I think it sounds scary as anything. Because there’s so much stuff that they have to hold together and they are responsible for everything, every single department is accountable to that one person. And that one person has so much stress and so much pressure…

EG: Ever considered being a cinematographer or a documentarian.

AP: That could be very interesting actually, I’ve thought about that. I was thinking about, you know, maybe applying to film school or something. But I don’t really want to just go to film school I want to specifically learn how to become a cinematographer, and I don’t think you can actually do that. I don’t really want to just go to a different school and learn a whole bunch of technical terms about stuff that I don’t want to learn about.

EG: You probably know most of them already.

AP: I probably know a lot. I specifically would want to know about lighting, and what kind of things create different sort of looks, effects, moods, what to use, camera lenses, that kind of stuff. And all I’d really need to do is go to a really friendly cinematographer on a film I’m working on and get them to explain it to me, you know what I mean?

EG: You ever tried to do that?

Ap: I sometimes ask questions, yeah, I don’t know if I would want to go to years and years of film school just to get to a point where I can specialize, because I highly doubt I am going to end up being a cinematographer…

EG: It’s probably the only solid skill you get in film school. The rest of it is more about creativity and theory…

AP; I just don’t have the patience to do through the theory stuff when I know I’m not going to want to use it.
