A Kiwi And Three Brits Sit Down For A Chat

As a cinephile, one of my favourite things is listening to filmmakers talk to other filmmakers. Especially if they work in different genres, if there are generational gaps, or if they work in different aspects of the creative process (directors talking with screenwriters, producers talking to cinematographers, etc). Depth of experience is interesting to me. If you are into that sort of thing, I highly recommend you check out Jon Favreau former IFC show, Dinner for Five.

The point of this is, Peter Jackson, director of the Lord of the Rings films, sat down and discussed film making with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the minds behind The Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, set to conclude next month with The World's End. I've largely avoided, at Simon Pegg's suggestion, any of the press and marketing for World's End. I'm excited about it and will be seeing, so I don't need additional prodding in that regard, and I'm very intent on not having the film spoiled by a trailer. But this is different. These are men, well established and knowledgeable in their craft, having an honest and frank discussion about their choices. It isn't a puff piece, it isn't a gimmick, and it isn't short. 

It is, however, four men who obviously love what they do, and love having people who understand that love to talk about it with.
