Back in May, we got the message: Flashmob at Mt. Bonnell to film the final scene for Slacker 2011. That segment, directed by Chris Eska, along with the other 22 segments by local filmmakers, debuts at the Paramount tonight. We were there to catch Eska recreating the famous sprint/amble/shamble up the hill.
You can read Marc Savlov's full interview with Eska here, but that is just the start of our coverage.
In addition to our big feature in this week's issue, Savlov also sat down with Scott R. Meyers to talk about re-weirding the Continental Club scene, as well as a twopart interview with Spencer Parsons about revisiting the Slacker House with iPhone technology.
