Is filmmaker Richard Linklater a vivid, visual thinker? That was the question I asked him. He has some version of photographic memory shares Linklater. His mom thought something weird was going on and he got tested for it as a kid, but that visual thinking did not help him in school he says. It was not until he was in his early 20’s that he discovered films and that is when his visual thinking helped him as a filmmaker. It is a skill you should have as a filmmaker Linklater says.

This is a highlight of our longer interview with Linklater that aired on TV and is available on our YouTube channel.
