Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 253 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A power packed episode is upon you, as Pip take a moment to stop and chat with writer, director and all round awesome person JOE CORNISH!
Consider this the counterpart to the much earlier Adam Buxton episode, if you will, what with Joe being Adam long term co-conspirator and collaborator! Between them they very much had a hand in those early days of podcasting, which was something of a direct offshoot of radio but with a very creative and premeditated approach, not to mention their amazing TV work… With both of them going their separate ways and moving onto a ton of incredible work between them, it’s been hugely inspiring to see the individual sides of the two, and Joe breaks down his recent work and creative projects including of course, ‘Attack The Block’ and brand new film ‘The Kid Who Would Be King’ (showing by the time you read this)! Hear Joe go in on everything else besides too, including film reactions from kids, violence in modern kids films, how he valued seeing himself in kids films (as a young’un), the “Supermarket Sweep of hell” of an approaching film deadline and its many intangible obstacles, how it’s tough to truly enjoy your own film creations as you know too much about them and his own Super8 films back in the day, made with pals Buxton and Louis Theroux! A lot packed into a shorter episode - you’ll dig it for certain!
