On this installment of The PAPER STREET Podcast, Becky and Shawn are joined by the co-writers and producers of the hilarious film 15 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT BIGFOOT (#1 Will Blow Your Mind!): the film's director, Zach Lamplugh, and its lead actor, Brian Emond. The guests discuss their chance meeting and early careers in theater and comedy, both stand-up and sketch, before getting into the film, which debuts in select theaters and on VOD May 7th, 2021.
They talk about the origins of the Vice-like style their mockumentary parodies, the urban legend subject of choice, wearing multiple hats on set, and the surprise silver lining of the film's pandemic-affected festival run. Plus: a round of 'Rapid Fire 15' with Brian and Zach, revisiting a late '90s Kevin Williamson-penned horror flick, showing proper reverence for an underseen mockumentary that never stops never stopping, and lamenting the news that the Arclight Cinemas/Pacific Theaters chain will not be reopening.
