Sundance 2011 Video Interview: SUBMARINE co-writer/director Richard Ayoade

I saw Richard Ayoade's (The IT Crowd) SUBMARINE last year at the Toronto International Film Festival and immediately fell in love with it (my review HERE). SUBMARINE is what HAROLD AND MAUDE  would be like if our rebellious characters met and fell in love in high school. Oh, the teen angst years - I miss them.

When I found out Ayoade would be at Sundance for this film I crossed my tiny chubby fingers that GATW would get some time with him. We did, and you can watch the interview after the break. Ayoade is a very polite, soft-spoken man. He's the guy who's soon going to very busy in the feature filmmaking world and will always be very appreciative of all the compliments on his much-deserved success.

Watch as we discuss the prcoess of making  SUBMARINE and who would win in a fight between Doogie Howser and Olive Tate (SUBMARINE's main character).
