Sundance Video: Mark Duplass Talks Humpday

Sundance Video: Mark Duplass Talks Humpday

Mark Duplass is revealed in Sundance hit Humpday (which should land one of four possible buyers at any minuteUPDATE was acquired by Magnolia) as more than the digital writer-director with his brother Jay of Puffy Chair and Baghead but a gifted improvisational actor. He and Humpday co-star Josh Leonard (who starred in The Blair Witch Project) collaborated closely Mike-Leigh-style with writer-director Lynn Shelton. The results are hilarious–but also cut close to the bone. It took skill to pull this off. Here’s my review.

Here’s Duplass’s debate with vet indie filmmaker Jeff Lipsky about digital vs. film. This encapsulates the generational divide pretty well.

Here’s my short flipcam interview with Duplass:
