A compressed version of the steps to building The Drew House set for Nancy Drew that I put together for instagram.
In 2000, David Wain and Michael Showalter set out to make their first film, Wet Hot American Summer. It was a low-budget, independent comedy, and they cast their friends - many newcomers to the business - Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, and many more. Released in 2001, it was panned by critics but has since become a cult classic, and those "friends" have gone on to become some of the biggest names in comedy. During the original shoot, over 25 hours of behind-the-scenes footage was shot, and it’s never been seen before - until now.
A big thank you to Variety for including me in their Artisan Elite Report.
At long last, this is the definitive Wet Hot American Summer book fans have been clamoring for! Screenwriters David Wain and Michael Showalter take pen to page and create a hilarious, behind-the-scenes annotated version of the original screenplay that launched a thousand Halloween costumes. They provide commentary on and insight into how and why they made the artistic decisions they did while writing and filming the movie that went on to become a true cult classic, as well as an ongoing Netflix series. The book will also feature reproduced ephemera from filming—photos, original (and scathing) reviews, AIM chat conversations, marked up script pages, and so much more. Written and curated by Wain and Showalter, this will be the must-have guide to all things Wet Hot. From Abrams Books. Wherever books are sold! e.g. Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Wet-Hot-Americ...
