FROM THIS EPISODE

We revisit our conversation with filmmaking brothers Jay and Mark Duplass, whose movie, Cyrus, (which comes out on DVD December 14) marked a turning point in their careers.  They'd made feature films but never before with studio backing, never with known actors and never with significant budgets.  As darlings of the indie world and trailblazers in the mumblecore filmmaking style they gained acclaim at festivals and on blogs but now they're rising stars in Hollywood. They're currently in post production on their next film, Jeff Who Lives at Home, starring Jason Segel, produced by Jason Reitman and distributed by Paramount.  Still, they try to stay true to their mumblecore aesthetic, using improvisation and shooting in a documentary-like fashion.
