Video Interview: ANIMAL KINGDOM writer/director David Michôd

David Michôd

Aussie company Blue Tongue Films are about to bang Hollywood over the head. Remember that short film, I LOVE SARAH JANE? That was written by Spencer Susser and David Michôd, who both had feature films at this year's Sundance Film Festival (HESHER and ANIMAL KINGDOM, respectively). Both recieved positive buzz and Michôd's work went on to very deservingly win the Grand Jury Prize award for World Cinema - Dramatic.

Last week I chatted with Michôd about ANIMAL KINGDOM. If you've seen this film, then you already know how insane it is. We talk a lot about the characters and where the inspiration of ANIMAL KINGDOM came from  (life does imitate art in this gem), what it was like winning at Sundance, and how Blue Tongue Films got their start. This is a great interview, make sure to watch it all!

P.S. - Sorry for the terrible lighting. This was shot on the iPhone 4 in a poorly-lit room. Good thing Michôd is such a stud!

    I don’t believe it’s a First Amendment issue either. However, I do believe it’s a Fifth Amendment issue and a Tenth Amendment issue and at most, this should be a state matter
