"The Exquisite Corpse Project": A Movie About When Your Friendships Go Horribly Wrong

This is a real-life story about five bros who decide to make a movie, as sort of a last hurrah before they grow up. Each of them has to write 15 pages of the movie in turn, having only seen the immediately preceding 5 pages. And then… they make the movie.

Crazily enough, everyone finds this very frustrating and acts like a big baby. Ha ha, no, only sometimes. It’s actually a great depiction of collaboration and how awful and wonderful it all is. (Makes a lovely companion to the Andre Gregory documentary Before and After Dinner, which, by the way, has been extended through tomorrow at Film Forum.) Plus you get two movies in one: the filmed result, which tests its actors to their limits, and the story of the collaboration.

We’re now selling films — DRM-free and easy to buy and download and play as you like — directly to those who want to enjoy them. Check it out. JUST FIVE BUCKS!

“A truly great film about collaboration, friendships and the friction that can exist therein,” says Film Threat. “Never before has a movie so deftly deconstructed friendship and filmmaking and creativity and collaboration,” says a dude who produced “Portlandia.”

This is the first offering from our project Splitsider Presents, which distributes comedy and standup directly from artists.
