Interview with Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy

posted by Jason Kottke   Dec 19, 2006

Interview with Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy about For Your Consideration and filmmaking in general. Interestingly, they don’t write any dialogue for their films (it’s all ad-libbed) but only do three takes per scene to get it right. “It’s the dialogue aspect of this process where you realize how great, how talented this troupe really is, because they’re able to improvise some amazingly, brilliantly funny lines.”
