Stillman talks about working on a small budget and points out examples in the film where they cut costs. For example, they would tip sympathetic doormen at 4 am so that they could film shots of actors walking in and out of buildings. Eigeman and Nichols recall their impressions of working on what was their feature film debut. Stillman candidly confesses his technical shortcomings at the time – he had only gotten to chapter nine in the book, How to Direct a Movie. This is a relaxed, low-key track full of intelligent observations as you would expect from people responsible for a smart movie.
