Alex Karpovsky’s doc feature “Trust Us, This Is All Made Up” has been picked up by B-Side Entertainment, the company said Wednesday. The film explores ong-form improvisation of Second City alumni TJ Jagodowski and David Pasquesi, and had its world premiere at the 2009 SXSW Film Festival. This acquisition brings B-Side’s current 2009 slate to nine films.
Jagodowski and Pasquesi have become living legends in their field, recognized by audiences around the world for their character-driven, hilarious and original performances. “Trust Us” illustrates the beauty of improvisation and the comedic bond between one of the most celebrated improv duos, featuring a live performance recorded at New York’s Barrow Street Theatre.
“Individually, TJ and David are masters of their craft. Together, they take improv to another level,” remarked director Alex Karpovsky in a statement. “It was amazing to get a front row seat to true creative genius at work. I look forward to working with B-Side to share TJ and David’s artistic energy and comedic wit with the world.” [Brian Brooks]
