Episode 11 - Funny Pages director Owen Kline
August 25th 2022

Our friend Owen Kline visits Screen Slate HQ to talk about his feature directorial debut Funny Pages, about a teenage cartoonist who strikes up a demented friendship with a former low-level comic artist. We talk about "being into old shit," MAD Magazine, maintaining continuity over a multiyear shooting schedule, working with Louise Lasser, premiering at Cannes, and more. Plus we call up Adam Resnick (Late Night with David Letterman, Get a Life, Cabin Boy) to shoot the shit and talk about an awkward adolescent father-son filmgoing experience.
