It's a desire to be heard.
And a commitmentto a three-act structure
that has a 20-minute setup,
about an hour and a halfof conflict,
and a big,triumphant resolution.
So let's start at the beginning,gang.
When did your bandfirst form?
Um, it was about two weeksago --
Yeah, it was abouttwo and a half,
three weeks ago,I'd say --
I hadn't seenmy friend Kyle,
and I hate living on a farmso I started writing songs.
That's good, that's good!
Lost a close friend.
Put loneliness into lyrics.
Yeah, and Stan came to meand I said,
"Well,I can play the drums --"
But -- But he'd already asked meto play the drums.
So, yeah, I said,"Okay, I'll play guitar."
Inner conflict overdirection of band, good.
Oh, and then Kennylearned to play bass
watching YouTube videos ofJohn Lennon with the Dalai Lama.
Oh, oh, yeah, no, no,we don't want to go there.
Talking about the Dalai Lama
doesn't go over wellwith the Chinese.
The -- the --the what?
Look, for this movieto really make money,
we need to be sure it clearsthe Chinese censors, you know?
We wantthose Chinese viewers!
-Aw, seriously?-Oh, it's okay.
There's plenty of other thingsto talk about with your story.
How about --What kind of things
were you intowhen you were younger?
Well, I always likedWinnie the Pooh!
Oh, no, no, no, no no no,that's definitely off limits.
Winnie the Poohis illegal in China
becausesome Chinese students said
he looked likethe Chinese President.
Aw, come on.That's ridiculous.
Hey, you want to move awayfrom your family, right?
You want to be successfulon your own, right?
Alright, well,you know what they say --
You got to lower your idealsof freedom
if you want to suck onthe warm teat of China.
