Two Interviews: Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

July 20, 2009

Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

One of my favorite movies of the year has finally hit theaters (albeit limited only) this weekend - 500 Days of Summer. I first saw it at Sundance and back in January, one snowy afternoon, I sat down with stars Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and director Marc Webb. That interview I did with Marc was posted back in January (watch it here). However, I've been holding onto the Zooey and Joe interviews until now - so that you have something to watch right now. And now I present to you both interviews, side-by-side, for your viewing pleasure. Remember, both of these were conducted at Sundance in January.

Watch our interviews with 500 Days of Summer stars Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt:


Both of these interviews were shot using my Flip Mino camera. You may have noticed roughly 2 minutes into Joseph Gordon-Levitt's interview, the camera skips, and that's because I had to yell at the other people in the room because they were being too loud and I could barely hear Joe. Sorry, I had to cut that out of the final video. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed watching both of these. Sundance is always a bit odd as I'm usually sleep deprived and cinematically overloaded (I had probably seen 20 films by this point), but I tried my best to ask some good questions. And also don't forget, 500 Days of Summer is playing in theaters right now!

  • -Peter-
    FINALLY. I was wondering what you were doing with these.

    Looking forward to see this movie! Still think Joseph Gordon-Levitt would have made an awesome Tesuo in a live action Akira. Dudes, you guys need to invest in some proper gear! Get some proper lav mics or a shot gun mic for interviews. It's hard to hear with all the background noise.

    I can't wait to see this film, but these interviews blow.

    I will be one of the few to say I didn't particularly like this film. I understand its strength lies in its undermining the traditional Rom Com formula, yet I still found it lacking overall in depth. I walked out thinking this should be called: "He's a girl & she's an asshole." But that's the same thing as hoping that girls learn their lessons in traditional Romantic Comedies, so I suppose in that respect, it succeeds. I just think Neil Labute did it WAY better, in "The Shape of Things" - which may not have been as evenly produced, but certainly took more chances and reflected much more accurately and deeply on its chosen subject: reversal of roles in romance. Look it up.
  • @Jimbone - If you don't like them, please explain why, so I can try to improve next time. If it's audio quality, I already know and have been working to improve that in the future.

    They would make a cute real life couple. Very believable together.

    My audio and video for the Joseph Gordon-Levitt interview were not syncing up and it started to piss me off. Anyone else have this problem?
