If you’ve been paying attention to my reviews, you’ll know already that I was a fan of Katie Aselton’s relationship comedy The Freebie, in which she stars alongside Dax Shepard. The two play a couple who try to fix their completely unbroken marriage by allowing each other one night of sexual freedom.

After seeing and reviewing the film (read my review here) I had a chance to catch up with writer/director Katie, as well as her editor Nat Sanders and cinematographer Ben Kasulke at Main Street Pizza & Noodle, a Park City favorite. We didn’t eat pizza together, but we did talk about the movie, about the Duplass school of filmmaking and about making an intimate movie about intimacy. We also discovered that the best way to make sure your film is edited correctly is for your adorable writer director to cuddle with her editor during interviews. Who am I to argue? If it works, it works.

Watch the very long, but very entertaining conversation below. You can also read more coverage of Sundance 2010 here.
