Interview with ‘Cow Boy’ co-creator Nate Cosby

The Beat conducted an interview with Nate Cosby, the rustler who co-created Cow Boy with Chris Eliopoulos. We’d reckon we include this excerpt from the interview:

“There were a lot of quiet moments in Cow Boy with little or no dialogue. They reminded me of Spaghetti Westerns from the sixties. Were they an influence?

Definitely. Sergio Leone was a huge influence, as was Unforgiven and Deadwood. Lots of Westerns feature people that are frustrated. They don’t have much to say, because they don’t think words mean much. So when they DO speak, it matters. To me, that can be really similar to being a kid. You have all these thoughts, but you don’t know what they mean, and you don’t know what to do about them. But rather than being a loud brat, Boyd’s internalized all his confusion and unhappiness…and lets his actions do most of the talking.”

Nate also talks about his experience editing Jim Henson’s The Storyteller, his intern experience, and what to expect from Cow Boy 2.
