"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
Production still from "Trenton Doyle Hancock: 'The Former and the Ladder or Ascension and a Cinchin''" (2013)
"I guess I could've been a little bit more reckless when I was cutting it out; but, part of me was like, 'No, if you cut it in a way that it maintains its integrity, then I can use this again in some other work.'"
