Who’s got two thumbs and can’t wait for 30 Rock to come back? THIS GIRL.
Record Collecting For Girls: The Full Short Feature Length Book Trailer
Here’s the story behind the story of this book trailer. It was directed and masterminded by Russell Sanzgiri. You’ve seen his work before on things like the Arcade Fire’s Scenes from the Suburbs short, the Punk’s Not Dead doc, and the Black Mountain video for “Old Fangs.”
If you think the redhead in the clips looks familiar, she does. That’s Maria Thayer, who you may have seen in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, State of Play, or perhaps an episode of 30 Rock. She’s pretty amazing.
It was co-written by a funny friend named Daniel Reid and myself, based on ideas from my book. Oh, and those voiceovers are me, aka the author’s way of being in the trailer without actually being IN the trailer. No one wants to see the author. Unless she’s drunk.
Many other people shot, edited, acted in, and otherwise helped make this beautiful bastard thing and I thank them all.
Enjoy, I hope it makes you pee yourself.
