Taylor Swift recently directed a project called “All Too Well: The Short Film”, which screened at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. This is her first outing as a non-music video director, but at her eyes, she’s more than ready to make the leap to feature films. “If it was the right thing, it would be such a privilege and such an honor,” she said during an appearance on In Conversation With…, admitting she hasn’t dated the film school, but she understands what it takes to make a movie come to life from the director’s chair. “When I did it myself, I really started learning everything because I had to,” Swift added.
So what kinds of movies can we expect Taylor Swift to direct down the line? Well, she’s made it clear that she’s not trying to break into the Marvel Cinematic Universe or similar action-packed breakout endeavors. “I will always want to tell human stories about human emotion,” Swift revealed, citing acclaimed female directors such as Nora Ephron, Chloe Zhao and Greta Gerwig as some of her biggest influences. “It’s really beautiful that we’re in a place where the idea of a filmmaker doesn’t make you roll your eyes or think with as much skepticism as before,” she explained (via The Hollywood Reporter) .
If Taylor Swift has proven anything, it’s that she’s a multifaceted talent. If and when she tries to get into feature filmmaking, don’t be surprised when she knocks it out of the park.
