Was a fan of Mark Pellington’s experimental Buzz back in the early 90’s. Cutting edge programming. Hadn’t seen it in years until this showed up on Boing Boing. Hat tip filmmaker mag.
David Lynch is behind a new web series doc venture entitled Interview Project. IP is a spontaneous cross country trip that will travel 20,000 miles over the next 70 days and interview 121 people along the way. The interviews will be conducted with those individuals that catch the filmmakers interest, with a new interview going live on the site every 3 days.
It’s interesting to see Absurda expanding the Lynch brand online. Davidlynch.com is a free / subscription fee model site that offers all things Lynch, from daily weather reports to frequent visits to Bob’s Big Boys for coffee and cigarettes, the site has been an early play at an online pay model for the director. Absurda has also assisted with the DIY release of Inland Empire and now appears to be experimenting with online serialized content.
Back when Inland Empire came out I sat down with Eric Basstte, managing partner of Absurda to discuss the release and Absurda’s future plans.
