From the GATW Archives: Sundance 2010 Video Interview: Actors John C. Reilly, Crispin Glover, and writer/directors Jeremy Konner and Derek Waters (DRUNK HISTORY)


A few days before taking off for Sundance, I received an email letting me know that John C. Reilly, Crispin Glover and the brilliant minds behind the DRUNK HISTORY shorts were available for interviews. So I put in a request not thinking much of it (after getting so many rejection emails, there’s only so much whiskey my liver can take), but a few days later, we were confirmed to interview the crew. This will probably go down in GATW history as one of the most fun interviews we’ve ever done.

It was so cool being able to speak to Reilly (MAGNOLIA is my favorite film) and Glover (who star in DRUNK HISTORY: TESLA AND EDISON), but it was Jeremy Konner and Derek Waters who I was thrilled to grab an interview with. These two boys are the crazy brains behind DRUNK HISTORY. If you don’t know much about the DRUNK HISTORY shorts, YouTube them - you will not be disappointed.

Check out the video interview after the jump. A few things though, it’s very long (clocking in at twenty minutes) and the audio’s pretty irritating. We shot in a hallway at a hotel, so we could only monitor so much background noise. I hope you enjoy watching this interview as much as I enjoyed doing it.

Also, I wanna note that Jeremy and Derek one the Sundance award for Best Short Film. Well deserved!
