Tribeca Video: ‘The Bachelor Weekend’ Director John Butler Speaks About Having the Right Producers

Tribeca Video: 'The Bachelor Weekend' Director John Butler Speaks About Having the Right Producers

The Playlist’s Drew Taylor sat down with director John Butler and actors Hugh O’Conor and Peter McDonald to chat about their comedy film “The Bachelor Weekend.” The talk is part of a series of Tribeca Film Festival conversations being hosted at the Apple store in SoHo.

In the vein of “The Hangover” films, “The Bachelor Weekend” follows a group of not-made-for-the-wild men who take a trip to the Irish wilderness before their friend’s wedding. 

In the clip below, Taylor asks the comedy team if they could impart any wisdom for aspiring filmmakers. Director Butler highlighted his lucky in finding producers who were willing to make their film.

“As a first time filmmaker I just think that’s exactly the support you need to find. And I think it’s rare and under-appreciated in the business.”
