One of the greatest pleasures and saviors of working in the arts is losing yourself in the work. In Ep. 2 of Willful, filmmaker Maureen Judge describes
• what moves her the most about documentaries.
• how she chooses her subjects.
• how she sets out to capture those transformative moments in people's lives. "I look for subjects who are living the broader shifts and changes in society."
To wit: Her latest TVO doc, My Millennial Life, formed in her mind after she read news articles about youth unemployment in Spain and Greece. "It really resonated for me as a parent of Millennials."
Willful is the web series that tracks how creative entrepreneurs work, thrive and survive. We interview one artist a week, then post five three-minute snack films from that interview on YouTube every day.
