Interview: Daniel Perlmutter

We chat with TIFF 2009 Pitch This winner, writer and director Daniel Perlmutter, about his recently wrapped comedy Big News from Grand Rock, and his film’s lengthy gestation period, why his film is a throwback to the same kinds of stories his main character is trying to make newsworthy, reuniting with one of his Pitch This mentors for his leading man, and how time flies once the film starts rolling.
