Sundance’s Meet The Artist Interview with Rick Alverson

In a Meet the Artists interview, Rick Alverson talks about “The Comedy” and the forces, both apparent and underlying, propelling the film. Alverson tells Sundance, “The goal of thing was to vacillate between the comedic and the gravely serious.” Currently competing in the 2012 Sundance Film Festival as part of the U.S. Dramatic Competition, “The Comedy” stars Tim Heidecker and features Eric Wareheim, both of the Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!. Alverson refers to these two as anti-comics and further describes how their innate qualities and work outside of the film played a part in it’s direction. Watch full interview here.
