Off Camera is a website, magazine, television show, and podcast.
Off Camera is hosted by photographer/director Sam Jones, who created the show out of his passion for the long form conversational interview, and as a way to share his conversations with a myriad of artists, actors, musicians, directors, skateboarders, photographers, and writers that pique his interest.
When Olivia Wilde told her mom she wanted to be an actress, her mom didn’t say, “Oh that’s cute, honey,” nor did she start dialing agents. She carefully explained the steps involved. Young Olivia’s takeaway? Actors study and work hard. Through more recent experience (specifically, Drinking Buddies, Meadowland, motherhood) she’s learned to become more present, open and confident. Both are valuable lessons – one’ll help you get to be an actor; the other will help you be a really good one. The second member of the Sudeikis/Wilde clan to grace Off Camera joins us to talk about what’s become most important to her as an artist, the characters we relate to versus the ones Hollywood usually shows us, and why she could make “the shittiest movie ever” and still have it be called an important film.
