INDIES BEHIND THE CAMERA AT SNL
SNL this weekend featured a short film directed by Noah Baumbach and starring the show’s guest host, Paul Rudd, whose very funny Role Models is in theaters now. Costarring Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, upcoming in Greg Mottola’s Adventureland, the film, says Karina Longworth at Spout, is “a cute bit of bromance,” but it’s also a kind of a small-screen mumblecore/indie film reunion. Joe Swanberg, whose in-post feature, Alexander the Last, was produced by Baumbach, was the d.p.; fellow Alexander producer Anish Savjani (Wendy and Lucy) produced; Swanberg and writer/director/actress Amy Seimetz operated the camera; and Guatemalan Handshake director Todd Rohal lit it.
