It's been a wild run for the duo (Arin Crumley and Susan Buice) behind Four Eyed Monsters. They first premiered their little gem of an indie back at Slamdance in 2005, and since then the flick has just taken on a life of its own. Arin and Susan have been everywhere with it -- multiple film festivals, premiering it on YouTube, in Second Life, self-distributing it to theaters around the country, answering questions in this forum, in that forum -- and in the process they've created 13 brilliant video podcasts (or diaries), which not only document their experience as filmmakers, but also as lovers.
I can't even begin to explain how much they've accomplished in the three years since finishing the film (feel free to visit their website, their YouTube page and check out this two-part interview with Arin on Cinematical), but I'm proud to call them friends and I'm happy IFC decided to put out their DVD (which apparently comes with all 13 video podcasts and a compilation CD). That said, Spout is hosting a final Q&A with Arin and Susan now that their DVD is out and in Borders stores -- and in typical Crumley/Buice fashion, the two artists are providing answers via video.
So in honor of this final Q&A, we present to you Episode 1 of their 13-episode video podcast/diary. Seriously folks, if you've never watched them and have no idea what I'm talking about, head on over to IFC and check out the episodes in order. Or, better yet, buy the DVD and make a weekend out of it. These two are f**king brilliant, and we here at Cinematical wish them all the luck in the world moving forward.
