Interview: Cloudy Writers/Directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller
by Brandon Lee Tenney
September 18, 2009
Sitting down with both Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the co-writers and co-directors of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, was a real pleasure. Their distinct and pervasive love for cinema is immediately apparent. Their love for creating stories that are just a bit obtuse helped them to create the TV series Clone High and then write for How I Met Your Mother. And after six years, Cloudy is finally coming out in theatres everywhere. Below, you can listen in as we talked a bit about their inspirations, the process of adapting a childrens' story, and what it's like to direct and collaborate with over five hundred people.
Watch our Cloudy interview with writers and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller:
