Hi my name is Matthew Weiner, you may know me from MAD MEN and THE SOPRANOS, my latest project is a film called ARE YOU HERE, ask me anything!
Matthew Weiner here, I have a film ARE YOU HERE coming out this Friday. I wrote the script 9 years ago so obviously this didn't happen over night, the movie is about a lot of issues that are close to my heart and i knew i couldn't give up on it. ARE YOU HERE is about things that were on my mind: friendship, drugs, medication, family and our relationship with nature-- but the most important thing to me was to explore these four flawed characters and how lucky we are to not be alone.
I am really excited to be here and answer your questions about any of my projects, your projects, the creative process, and the weird state of the world today.
Check out the ARE YOU HERE trailer
Thank you all so much for your thoughtful questions and incredible compliments. I wish I had time to answer all of them. Hopefully next time. Go see ARE YOU HERE this weekend, I would love to hear what you think. And to all you aspiring writers out there, the best advice I ever got was: keep writing, that means you have to find a way to make rejection feed your dreams. And dont forget to live or you will have nothing to write about. Good luck!
