The British Marling OA on "ungrateful, careless, signed" roles for women and why women - creators are so important

Explaining OA — the last original series Netflix which will unite a secret with science-fiction elements — to someone who didn't see him is a little similar pulling free thread. You think that you begin with small ("Thus, it about the young woman under the name Prairie who was absent within seven years and then mysteriously comes back"), but then it begins to get confused a little more ("She tells the story which includes events almost of death to group of teenagers and the lonely teacher of high school"). It is too difficult soon to grab ("Allow me to show you this thing called by these five movements!") which is why probably just it is better to test history as it intends to be: in eight strange, radio episodes which take you through life of the Prairie also known as OA.

Brit Marling,

The British Marling who has written, made and played a major role among, has studied it in process in the beginning. "The show thus the extremist and the minimalist at once", was told by her during recent visit of the New York office of the Glamour. "It about everything, and then it also distils to a trifle as a conference of the parental teacher. Thus, how you do space and a conference in the same?" It is cunning, thus, Marling has found the best way to explain that OA to heads of Netflix was, playing "tentpole the moments" personally instead of writing down all this.

That ability to be both an extremist and the minimalist at once, apparently, something, than it always was in life of Marlinga. 33-year-old has begun in the bank world with an internship in Goldman Sachs before to begin to try in Los Angeles her happiness at action. "It became very easy to turn other direction because it is similar to you your live reserve plan at first", she explains vital change. Of course, things didn't consist immediately that it is much better in Los Angeles: The Marling describes roles and listenings for the fighting actresses as "cruel". But those events have forced it to understand whether she wanted the best roles, she had to begin to create own contents. Eventually, after a long journey of "risk and treachery", Marling has written and played a major role in India of the sharp change in price for papers Other Earth and a sound of my Voice in 2011 which has received it noticed. And now? She is a hit show star on popular stream service and finding that her "ambitious and possibly impossible" the project which has paid.

Here, Marling says to us as she has made it. To continue to read.

question: To begin, I have read that you had the offer of work from Goldman Sachs and then have switched off it to pursue action. You can tell me about that vital change?

British Marling: I have studied economy at school. I am a type of the loving meeting in library and fight against these proofs against children which were in economy. Then it became younger year, and all were similar, "Oh, now we interview and we receive these internships, and then you get a job, and it is a type of how it goes". I just followed that wave to the world of banking. And then, when I did work, it wasn't that I thought. Creativity from the point of view of mathematics has turned more into creativity of capture of money and creation of bigger quantity of money from that money. I felt depressed anyway by him, and in this point I, it has appeared, have been completed on something that was two various companies having them the IPO at once. I was at office as, eight days a week, 26 hours a day. I thought, It doesn't feel well. I really give everything hours of the life to this thing which doesn't stir me in the deep way.

Then it became very easy to turn other direction because it is similar to you your live reserve plan at first. You just have to find a thing which you like to do and then to understand how to make it. Thus, I have moved to Los Angeles with some people and wanted to act which I have been really confused to allow at first. Very much it was hard to say to my parents or someone else because they are similar, "Wait that? You have studied economy. It doesn't make any sense!"

question: You left stable work …

BM: "You have a stable work! You - the rational, reasonable person. You receive good marks; You paint in lines. You avoid risky actions!" To suddenly and very significantly move and are similar, "About isn't present, I am going to live dangerously. I am going to place the whole life to the line", there was a cunning change. I think the first thing, I thought when I left to Los Angeles, it was fair: Oh, if I want to act, I have to find various way to go about it because parts for girls so depressing as bank jobs. You have to be really ready to invent, I assume, various way for myself.

question: It brings to me to my following question: What rather bank world is done by you think, is similar or differs from Hollywood?

BM: They have much in common, correctly? [Laughter]. I don't know enough about history of Hollywood, but I feel like probably in the seventieth when Jaws and these movies which have been made for rather small begun creation of such large number of money you can assume that at all on East coast in the bank world which is suddenly turned and, have looked on the Western coast and were similar, "to Wait. It can be a financial product also, and this glamourous?" I think that there is an element of Hollywood which became about business less about telling of stories or what stories have to be told — what stories - we desperately needing in or will conduct culture in the good direction. That camp exists also, and they - a type of his pobezhdeniye for the territory. Of course, I think the company as Netflix which has entered and really places their weight behind modern, original histories, is suddenly similar to new forces in system. Similar to fascinating time now for telling of stories. I don't know about 10 years ago — it looked a little risky. [Laughter].

question: How what there were your first roles and listenings?

BM: Oh, my God, cruel. I remember when I at first have reached Los Angeles, I wasn't even the DISTORTION [Guild of film actors of the USA], thus, you so illegal that nobody wants to have any relation to you. It is similar, you have a plague. You could infect them with the illegality because you weren't even in the commercial car, and you try to be listened for this material. I read earlier how, Behind the scenes, and there will be listenings sent it, you could go to if you weren't in the DISTORTION. I would put on and would go to some listening in the Valley, and will be as, 100 girls, all with their hair curled and short skirts on and undershirts and heels …, and then you have entered to be listened, and it was just the group of men behind a table. I think then that I was a type of similar, It isn't going to work very well for me if I go about it this way.

The idea consists that you as it is supposed, pay the contributions doing these types of parts in movies which are a type of bigger quantity of financial products than something or movies, in which the girl - the ungrateful, careless, signed character. If you pay the contributions there, eventually they will give you a part which has substance in it. The problem consists in if you play enough that roles on the way, you any more not the person who had something new or vital for the offer. I think that it really begins to reduce some part you, to see off myself through things which you really don't want to do. Thus, then I was similar, I find out various route better.

question: Thus, it was a turning point for you to begin to create your own contents?

BM: Yes, it was. And I thought for a long time that I actually wasn't going to work. It is amusing because you look back on life and create the story which makes sense — but, of course, when you are in him, it is chaos, and you are afraid. I continued to go to library in the center and to read books of script writing and scenarios which were big. I have read Silence of lambs as, 200 times. You try to find out how to make it, and I have written many really bad things. Really bad scenarios, you know? [Laughter]. [I would be] to be nervous so to divide them with the friend who actually did movies and they have read them and to be similar [does a face]. Those early deviations are really rigid, especially when all your friends with whom you have gone to school now have lawful jobs, marry, having children, buying the real estate, being adults. And all of you still try to find out how to earn a living, doing a thing, you think that you love, but you still aren't even because you have even not made her sure. It was the long journey of risk and treachery.

question: How you can tell when you have a vital product — when you have a scenario which at last could be something?

BM: I never know, really, my own reaction. I can tell only when you give him to someone, especially someone to whom you trust. You can tell how they look at you after they have read it if it has lit something in them. Or you can tell the movie. I mean, Mike Cahill — who the surprising person, the artist and the director — and I has written to the movie Other Earth together and any of us had no software scriptwriting at this time because we aren't able to afford him. It has been simply written in as, Pages or Word and was similar to the short story on 60 pages. We have given it to some people, and you could tell in their reaction to him that there was something there. It has taken up some question in them, and then which is felt costing attempts to begin to do.

Thus, we have begun to do it without money. I mean, we have just begun to shoot scenes in which only I was independently. Eventually, if you - the train, it leaves the station, people will rush to catch up with you. I think that it is one of things which I have found out. You can't wait for permission to work, you just do; then people are similar, "Oh, look at that person who is simply doing there. Perhaps, I will arrive, join them".

question: What was reaction which you have received to OA?

BM: scenarios had this really unusual force. Even from the very first chapters [cocreator] of Zal Batmanglij and I have written together, you could tell that people will read it and will tell, "I never read something like it before. I never felt something quite as it before". And of course, as soon as we have created the room of very small writers with three great playwrights, five of us cooperated stating in details this story that Zal and I have spent good two years, having become pregnant. By then, when we have reached the end of it and had eight hours of telling of stories with these scenarios, the answer was really interesting. Actors or agents or people whom we would give him [in the order] to bring team round or to throw really, felt that they couldn't suppress him so that has given us a lot of energy and confidence for attempt to establish something that was so ambitious and it is possibly impossible. It is similar to very narrow gate or pass that I think that we have escaped through just advantage of a combination of unearthly talents [actors as] Phillis Smith or Emory Coen or Patrick Gibson, either production design or Crowley of Lol who shot at it. The surprising group of people has come he.

question: I think that OA is best of all tested, knowing very little about it before you enter, but how you even explain it to people? Is much there …

BM: It is very firm. Usually, when you do something by a long format, there is a part where you turn in the document which explains where all this is going to go. But the show thus the extremist and the minimalist is about everything at once, and then it also distils to a trifle how a conference of the parental teacher — therefore how you do space and a conference of the parental teacher in the same? It is cunning, thus, we have found that the best way to speak about it was orally. It was very difficult to write down at the beginning of, thus, once Cindi Hollend who is in Netflix, has entered the room of writers and Zal, and I generally put the four-hour play for her in which we have played all parts and have taken her through eight-hour experience because it was simple to tell him that way easier. It was easier to execute tentpole the moments in real time, than it had to try to write down on the sheet of paper. It is very difficult to make changes in him in a word form because they about moving images, you know?

question: Why TV or flowing for this story instead of telling it through the movie?

BM: I think that we are in this surprising Wild West of telling of stories because OA not of TV. It even really has no relation to TV. It is not the movie. It is similar to the novel in the DNA, perhaps, but it is, of course, not the novel. I think that we are at this fascinating moment of the Internet flowing telling of stories, and someone's assumption that or that it means. It can take any form. It - what is so fascinating in time in which we are; these directors enter and allow history to tell themselves as it wants to be told. I think that stranger Things have made it beautifully. In OA heads have various lengths; some main characters you don't meet till four o'clock century. It really has no precedent in television or the movie, surely. I think that it is interesting that you lift the movie because if there is any comparison, it is, perhaps, in a way which the movie - the proof that difficult starts and become simpler, thus, it wants to lead to this termination. I think that OA is similar to it. It about preparation of this world and all these people to arrive to the moment.

question: reaction has been divided on whether the Prairie is a reliable story-teller. You saw that the answer turns over more anyway?

BM: It is such good question. I feel that Zal would know the answer that because he is inclined to be more included in the world, than, I. I receive parts of a thing. Someone will write about something on Twitter in me or will send me mail. It is interesting because I think that the history asks that you had a belief at the end despite real proofs which could force you to doubt. Then this your business concerning whether you continue in the belief in history and the story-teller or if you don't do. At that time, doing it, I, of course, trusted it.
