Meet the 2015 Sundance Filmmakers #20: Andrew Bujalski Learned a New Language to Make the ‘Commercial’ Comedy ‘Results’
By Ana Souza | Indiewire
Andrew Bujalski is no stranger to the Sundance Film Festival, having premiered his fourth feature “Computer Chess” there in 2013, where it nabbed the Alfred Sloan Feature Film Prize. This time, however, Bujalski returns to the Festival with a slew of name actors in his much-anticipated “Results”, which will debut in the Festival’s U.S. Competition section. Featuring the likes of Cobie Smulders, Guy Pearce, Kevin Corrigan, Giovanni Ribisi, and Anthony Michael Hall, the film explores the intricate lives of personal trainers and promises a bittersweet look at the culture of self-improvement.
What’s your film about in 140 characters or less?
A couple of good-looking personal trainers are having trouble falling in love. Maybe a depressed pothead can help them?
Now what’s it REALLY about?
Self-improvement (does it exist?). Austin TX. The disaster of falling in love. Dogs, cats. Guitars, drums. “It’s not about the money, brother.” Bulging biceps! Yoga pants. Two road trips, one to New York, one to the Brooklyn-of-the-desert. Loneliness. Habits of single men. A young woman at high speed. Training (for what)? Service providers and their clients. Romantic comedy. Stammering. A red water bottle. Pull ups (a true measure of strength). Divorce. New love. Occasional sex.
Tell us briefly about yourself.
The Boston Globe describes me as “unerringly polite and somewhat disheveled.”
What was the biggest challenge in completing this film?
I know the movie is plenty idiosyncratic and personal…but it was also intended to be at least kinda sorta semi- quasi-…”commercial”…& that for me felt like learning a new language.
What do you want Sundance audiences to take away from your film?
I hope people have fun with it, and if they’re fans of these actors (Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders, Kevin Corrigan, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Michael Hall, Brooklyn Decker, Constance Zimmer, & many more!) I hope these performances pack some surprises for them.
Are there any films that inspired you?
Too many to name. But if you’re asking if my movie is intended specifically as homage to Rocky II, yes, sure, I guess it is.
Hoping to shoot another movie this year. Long term, hoping someday to take a warm bath / long nap.
What cameras did you shoot on?
Arri Alexa, in part thanks to an excellent grant from Film Independent!
Did you crowdfund? If so, via what platform? If not, why?
It’s inspiring & humbling when crowdfunding works, but not doing it–if you have financiers crazy enough to just write the checks themselves–is lovely.
Allure Exclusive: The First Look at Brooklyn Decker’s Short Hair
Brooklyn Decker is the latest celebrity to part with her long, tumbling waves and join Kate Mara, Emma Stone, and Halle Berry in the clan of the lob. “I get bored very easily and wanted to chop it off,” says the actress. “And Sienna Miller’s cropped cut made my decision very easy.” We got the first look at Decker’s awesome new cut and spoke with the team behind it.
“I made the first ten-inch chop to prepare for Brooklyn’s color, and everyone was very excited,” says colorist Rona O’Connor of the Lukaro Salon in Beverly Hills. She lightened Decker’s base tone to a golden blonde, added threads of ivory and strawberry for dimension, and faded the ends to a pale champagne for a sun-kissed look. Then Rona’s husband (and Lukaro co-owner), Luke O’Connor, stepped in to create the bob.
The first step was to tackle thickness. “She has so much hair, and that’s not a problem when it’s long—the more the better. But for her new bob, my challenge was to it thin out so it didn’t expand into what I call the sphinx look: flat on top and wide at the bottom,” says Luke. He started by lightening the bulk of hair underneath with thinning shears. “They’re measured by the percentage of hair they cut out of each section,” he says. “For example, I have 10, 20, 30, and 50 percent pairs. For Brooklyn, I pulled out the 50 percent one.” Then Luke cut vertically into the outer layer of hair to blend all the lengths together and create a jagged edge. “I like that I sort of look like a dude. It feels much more rock and roll now,” says Decker.
Oh and yes, Decker is wearing a T-shirt with a picture of herself picking her nose. On the plus side, it’s for charity!
We are very excited to announce that we have opened a new website! If you happen to like Swedish stunner Elsa Hosk (and who wouldn’t like her?), make sure you visit ww.hoskelsa.com! The very first fansite for Elsa with 2,000+ pictures!
If you are not familiar with Elsa, she’s the newest Victoria’s Secret Angel and one of our favorite models. We’d like to thank everyone for the continued support with all our projects.
