Your new webseries Everyday Life, if Directed by... - in a few words, what is it about?

 

What would your average person’s boring, mundane life be like... if it was directed by a famous filmmaker.

 

What were your sources of inspiration when writing Everyday Life, if Directed by...?

 

One day my friends and I were complaining that we were all having a really boring week. Then we started joking around saying that we needed Quentin Tarantino to direct our days - “Wouldn’t be so boring then!” The jokes expanded to how our routine days would play out if we had different directors deciding our fate.

 

What can you tell us about your co-writer Rich McDonald, and what was your collaboration like?

 

Rich comes from the world of stand-up comedy where he goes by the name Big Rich From Jersey. I’ve worked with him as a writer/producer and actor for nearly a decade. He understood what the show was about nearly instantly and was the perfect person for me to collaborate with.

 

The directors you picked for Everyday Life, if Directed by..., Quentin Tarantino, Alfred Hitchcock, Martin Scorsese and M. Night Shyamalan - why them?

 

They are legendary directors… everyone knows who they are and their work has had a major impact on our culture.

 

What did actually come first, the respective director or the situation they would (in a roundabout way) have to tackle?

 

We chose a list of directors and made a list of mundane, daily activities. Then we kind of looked them both over and thought “wouldn’t it be funny if so-and-so directed…”

 

How closely did you study your respective directors' directorial styles, and how easy or hard was it to emulate the style of each one? And directing pretty much as another director, did you ever feel the urge to add some personal quirks to the proceedings?

 

I purposely picked 3 directors that I was VERY familiar with and the 4th one my writing partner is a huge fan of, so that helped. I don’t feel it was hard to emulate them because their styles are so strong. These are true auteurs. And yes, my personal style is still always present in these episodes… it’s just my style of parodying.

 

What can you tell us about Everyday Life, if Directed by...'s cast, and why exactly these people?

 

I’ve worked with Adam Vadasz numerous times over the past 13 years. I knew he’d be perfect for the role… I wrote it for him. The audience sees the story through his eyes, he’s the comedic everyman. 

Natalie Holt, his wife, was suggested to me by a close friend when I was casting the pilot. She’s one of the most versatile actresses I’ve ever worked with.

 

A few word about the shoot(s) as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

Always a lot of fun. We’re a tight-knit group and we all LOVE what we do.

 

The $64-question of course, where can Everyday Life, if Directed by... be seen?

 

It’s currently playing on Tongal’s YouTube channel.

 

Will there be more episodes of Everyday Life, if Directed by..., and if so, which directors and everyday activities will be next on your list?

 

Not sure right now… I can’t say a lot about that. But I can say that at this stage all possibilities are still on the table.
