Scorsese's 2014 NYU Commencement Speech
Protect your voice. Be resilient. Fall and get back up. Look to the greats of the past to keep the spirit alive. Marty can speak endlessly about the films of Elia Kazan or Satyajit Ray but here he speaks about something we can all relate to as we try to stay connected to creating in a relentlessly hard and changing world. It's not sentimental but it is truthful. It's also humble. I've looked to this man for inspiration for a large part of my life and here he is, giving more to his art and the artist.
In a slump? Need a lift? Look no further. Carve out 32 minutes in your day. You'll be a better artist for it.
