Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode THREE HUNDRED of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! The Gerard Butler edition! We made it! Well, zero chances of Gerard sightings here, as Pip is joined this week by a mildly abbreviated by nonetheless great chat with the truly excellent director PAUL FEIG!
With his new film ‘Last Christmas’ on the horizon, now is the perfect time to catch Paul, and Pip does just that, managing to pick him up on all things directorial and cinematic philosophy. Beginning with the importance of eye contact in an interview, they get cracking on it all - the film in question (‘Last Christmas’), his old Xmas film ‘Grounded’, the perennial success carrot to chase in a Xmas film, whether or not you can have too much fun on set, whether or not moments are funny in front of a crowd, fatal flaws and runaway trains, finding intimacy in London, well rounded characters and not just mindless representation, aiming for a perfect cast, getting along with said cast, film vs TV, the need for honesty behind the scenes, relating to women and a whole lot more in not a huge amount of time… Also some extrapolated thoughts up top from Pip about a point hinted at near the end - all will make sense! It’s a goody, and definitely a conversation starter I would say. Enjoy! EPISODE 300!!!
