Over the weekend at the Apple store in SoHo, Indiewire’s Nigel M. Smith spoke with the funny guys behind “Intramural,” a sports comedy film playing at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. The conversation is part of the “Meet the Filmmaker Series,” for this year’s Tribeca films.
The fifth time is the charm for Caleb Fuller (Jake Lacy) who is finally about to graduate high school. Before he does, though, he tries to reassemble his old football team. Directed by Andrew Disney, “Intramural” also stars Nikki Reed, Kate McKinnon, Beck Bennett and Nick Kocher.
Smith got the opportunity to sit down with Disney, along with writer Bradley Jackson and actors Lacy, Kocher, and McElhaney. In the follow clips we see McElhaney explain how he received offset injury.
“I broke my toe,” McElhaney admitted. “I was playing a drinking game offset.”
We also see an audience member ask Lacy what it was like working with “Saturday Night Live” standout Kate McKinnon on the film.
“As a performer, to me at least, one of her greatest attributes is that she’s incredibly smart and funny, and goes for it every time,” Lacy said. Jackson went on to say how he looked on in awe as McKinnon improvised her scenes, highlighting a moment when she spontaneously made out with an extra–who reciprocated.
The last clip shows Smith asking the “Intramural” team what is the best way to get into the industry.
