I think its important to keep your personal life to yourself as much as you can. It protects your sanity and you need to have boundaries. And it helps that enchantment of watching an actor. If you know someones favourite colour or what they like to do on a Sunday, you wont fall for the character as much.
But short films are not inferior, just different. I think the short gives a freedom to film-makers. Whats appealing is that you dont have as much responsibility for storytelling and plot. They can be more like a portrait, or a poem.

Those old Appalachian singers use a falsetto sometimes. They can change their voices to sound high or low or really scratchy. When youre singing, usually youre trying to express some kind of pain or joy. I think that voice allows me to do a lot more of that.
