Indiewire Interviews Joss Whedon at SXSW '12. Indiewire's Nigel M. Smith has a brief but informative sit-down with the Jossir at this year's SXSW festival to discuss "The Cabin in the Woods," "The Avengers," "Much Ado About Nothing" as well as the creation of his microstudio company Bellwether Pictures.

"If you're not building a textured human and putting them through some kind of pain, I'm not sure what the purpose of the narrative is going to be." Is now one of my favourite Joss quotes.

Might have to frame it above my writing desk.
I really like "But then there came a time where I was like, no, I want to understand something through writing this that I might have not understood before. I want people to come away with something to think about. For them to be engaged emotionally, but also intellectually.".

I love how he talks about how the writer should get a deeper understanding as well as the audience they're making it for.
