My Conversational Partner:
Peter Macklin is a talented actor and writer based out of New York City (the adjective is my addition – he’s pretty humble). As a screenwriter, playwright, and stage actor, he is in the middle of the changing world of art that is being driven by technology. And his work often focuses on how we communicate and identify in this time of flux. He gave me a great perspective on the good and bad that can come with an increasingly connected art community.
We had a few recording snafus, so the first 2-3 minutes of our conversation got cut off. You’ll pick up our conversation right away, though. Heck, it’s almost like you just wandered over and joined us at a real pub!
Pay Attention To:
- How different platforms are creating different expectations for creating and engaging with art.
- Why technology makes collaborating easier – but also less personal
- The fact that auditioning for roles can feel like being “swiped left” on Tinder
- Talent is just table stakes at the highest level of art (and any industry) – and how you compete
- Peter’s exploration of IPAs (and how D. Fish attempt at being open-minded about hops)
- The power of opera!
