Last week we hit the slopes of Park City, Utah for a Sundance trip full of minor indie celebrity sightings, hot tub ventures and, of course, watching a shit ton of movies. To rest our eyes between full-length features, we check out one of the short film showcases. Sandwiched between six serious short narrative films about AIDS, elementary school shootings and Mormons, Asshole was a nice break from all the seriousness. Directed by two budding comedic filmmakers, Chadd Harbold and Bryan Gaynor (who are barely out of NYU film school), the film stars ex-VICE Magazine co-founder/current Street Boners and TV Carnage captain Gavin McInnes as an asshole who makes a trip to the doctor to figure out what's wrong with his anus (aka asshole). McInnes improvised almost the whole thing. We sat down with Harbold and Gaynor after a screening to talk about their "process" and how to avoid fart jokes, though we're not sure why anyone would want to do that.
