James Gunn Exclusive Video Interview

     October 26, 2008

A few nights ago I was able to land a great interview with director James Gunn. I spoke with him at a Microsoft event where they were promoting some recent games and the original content that James is currently creating for X-Box Live.

In case you didn’t know, James and a bunch of other directors are creating original content for Xbox and the cool thing is they have a tremendous amount of creative freedom and they also own the stuff they create. When speaking with James, it sounded like he was incredibly excited by the new media business model.

But before getting to the interview below…I want to make sure you’re familiar with something else James is working on…it’s called PG Porn. As you can see in the first episode below, James has teamed actual porn stars with actors you’ll recognize and he’s created an cool new series that’s absolutely worth watching. It’s basically porn without the intercourse. But…trust me…it has a great ending and you’ll laugh a lot.

So before getting to the interview, watch the first episode! If you’ve already seen it, scroll down and enjoy the two part interview. The first one is about what he’s doing for Xbox and the 2nd part is all PG Porn talk. If you liked the first episode, wait till you hear about what’s coming….
