Recap: What We Do In The Shadows
After a screening of the delightfully funny vampire mockumentary What We Do In the Shadows the audience engaged in a Q&A session with co-creators/co-directors Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi. Jemaine and Taika both starred in the film as two of the main characters, Vladislav and Viago, who were born out of a short film the filmmakers created 10 years ago when they initially invented these characters.
Watch the full interview for more on how the directors think humor translates across audiences, the extensive editing process they went through and why almost all of the script was pure improv. Special thanks to SVA Theatre.
