We were lucky to catch a screener of the animated film, Cheatin’ and also talk to the film’s director, Bill Plympton. Be sure to catch the film in select theaters and on Vimeo!
Usvsfilm: Your hard work really shows in Cheatin’. It’s very unique and it’s like a one of a kind story. I’m sure the script is structured differently from other films, so what was your process of getting it ready like and set for production?
We were luck to catch a screening of the film 5 to 7 from IFC Films and talk to the film’s director, Victor Levin, and lead actress, Berenice Marlohe. Be sure to check out the film in theaters now! Mild Spoilers
Usvsfilm: I love all the long takes and hearing the dialogue fill in the scenery throughout the film. Can you talk about some of the inspirations you had maybe in real life or movie-wise that created the whole environment in 5 to 7?
We were lucky to catch the film, Walter, and talk to director Anna Mastro and lead Andrew J. West. Be sure to check out the film in theaters now and on VOD.
Usvsfilm: What was it like adapting a short film to a feature length? Were there any obvious things that you wanted to change, or things that you wanted to add on from the short film?
